Errol Spence Jr. Declines Keith Thurman Comeback Fight: "Nahh"

Errol Spence Jr. has firmly turned down the idea of facing Keith Thurman as his comeback opponent with a simple “Nahh.” The former welterweight champion expressed his disinterest in taking on Thurman, citing concerns over Thurman’s reliability and his own need for a dependable opponent as he returns to the ring.

Thurman, known as ‘One Time’, has faced criticisms for his inconsistency and injury-prone career. Spence’s refusal to entertain the idea of fighting Thurman stems from the uncertainty surrounding Thurman’s fitness and readiness for a high-profile bout.

 

At 35 years old, Thurman finds himself in a precarious position, seeking opportunities to revitalize his career. However, Spence sees Thurman’s request for a fight as too little, too late. With Thurman’s career seemingly on a downward trajectory, Spence is focused on finding a reliable opponent for his comeback, someone who won’t withdraw due to injuries at the last minute.

While Thurman may still have value as a stepping stone for younger contenders in the welterweight division, Spence is not willing to risk his own comeback on Thurman’s track record of injuries and uncertainties. Spence had previously extended an offer to Thurman, which was not taken advantage of, further solidifying his decision to look elsewhere for his return to the ring.

As Spence sets his sights on his comeback fight, the question remains: who will step up to face the former champion?
