WBA interim welterweight world champion Keith “One Time” Thurman (24-0, 21 KOs) retained his title with a twelve round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten Leonard Bundu (31-1-2, 11 KOs) on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas. Thurman dropped the 40-year-old Bundu in the first 30 seconds of round one with a left hook, then settled into a long technical fight with the unorthodox Bundu. Scores were 120-107 on all cards in a very unThurman-like fight. “Bundu was smart, he came to not get KO’d. It was hard to time him, but I was patient. It was a great learning experience,” said Thurman afterward.
