What is Thurman’s career status?
Thurman enters the fight after spending more than two years away from the ring, looking to prove he is still one of the elite welterweight fighters in the sport.
He lost his last fight in 2019 to Manny Pacquiao and, in turn, lost his WBA (super) welterweight title.
A win could go a long way toward helping Thurman secure a chance to reclaim a welterweight title, whether it’s against Spence, Crawford or Yordenis Ugás, the man who defeated Pacquiao via decision to win the WBA (super) welterweight title in August of last year.
What is Barrios’ career status?
Barrios is a former world champion and still very much in the prime of his career at 26 years old. But a win against Thurman would do wonders, helping to prove that he has another level he can reach and has not already plateaued.
