Inside the Michelob Ultra Arena in Las Vegas on February 5, Keith Thurman and Mario Barrios will clash in a welterweight bout. A lot is on the line for both fighters, as two former champions are ready to redeem themselves.
A former WBA welterweight champion, Thurman won the interim title against Diego Chaves in 2013. Promoted to regular champion in 2015, he defended that version of the belt five times. Losing the title against Manny Pacquiao in July 2019, he underwent surgery, a key theme of his career. Thurman is ready to return to title contention and face the best within the division.
Barrios made his pro debut in 2013. A WBA super-lightweight champion, Barrios successfully defended the title once. His last fight was a TKO loss at the hands of Gervonta Davis back in June 2021, losing the title in the process.
