This was a much better fight than anyone would have thought coming in. I came in predicting Thurman UD because I thought he'd try to get as many rounds in as possible. As it turned out, he was more than willing to go for the KO, he just didn't seem to have enough power to trouble Lopez.

Thurman was boxing Lopez's head off for the first 6 rounds, before he got caught and nearly stopped in a shocking 7th round. Thurman has always relied on his awkward hook heavy style and his movement for defense. It isn't a good sign that a pressure fighter of Lopez's level was able to put him in serious trouble, given he could have fights against guys like Porter and Spence coming up soon. From there on, he had more than a few nervy moments, and this fight turned in to a highly entertaining war with several close rounds.

This is why it is dangerous to take on a game opponent post-injury, which I think people sometimes forgot to account for.

Agreed on all accounts.
