“I dedicate some of my power to Mike Tyson. I watched a lot of film on Mike Tyson,” Thurman said. “Then we started taking notes on Muhammad Ali. We took notes on Sugar Ray Leonard. What was that fighter known for? Why was he so difficult to beat in his time, in his era and, you know, why was he at the top?”
By 20, Thurman was almost at the top. After winning 101 amateur fights, he turned pro. Then Getty — who had been by his side at every match — unexpectedly died. He was 63 years old.
“Ben Getty believed in me before anyone else did. I dedicate everything to him each and every day. That’s why I wear his name on my trunks,” Thurman said.
While he wasn’t wearing them at Friday’s weigh-in with Shawn Porter, he’ll have them on Saturday at the match. The two have trained together in the past and call each other friends.
“Does it make it harder to turn a friend into an enemy for one day?” Nair asked.
“No because it’s for one day. It’s for one day,” Thurman responded. “He’s a friend, but boxing is my life.”
“If you had to predict, how many rounds will this fight last?” Nair asked.
“I would say that it’s going to go the distance,” Thurman said.
“I think it’s important. I think this fight has become more important now because it’s on network television, because it’s two of the top guys in the business,” said former fighter and ESPN boxing analyst Teddy Atlas. “That could be the replacements of Mayweather and Pacquiao you know, this is the dress rehearsal.”
It’s a dress rehearsal to defend the title Thurman has relished for the past three years, as welterweight champion of the world. He predicts he’ll knock Porter out and that everything he does outside of the ring makes him a champion inside of it.
“There’s different kind of champions. There’s the champion that becomes champion and they’re not champion for long. And then you have the guy who becomes champion and he stays at the top for like a decade,” Thurman explained. “And those fighters tend to be very intelligent. So for 20 years I have been a student of the game and I am still mastering my craft.”
He is known for his nickname, One Time.
“When I’m walking past a crowd on fight week and they shout out One Time, I respond, ‘All the time.’ So it’s ‘one time, all the time, KOs for life.’ And that’s my motto,” Thurman said.
