#ThrowbackThursday: Thurman vs Garcia – Beyond the Beef (Sports)

The build-up for one of 2017’s most anticipated fights began in 2016. November 12, to be exact.

And from there, natural fireworks were set off between the two. Now, four months later and just days before their massive welterweight clash, Garcia and Thurman look back on that classic confrontation.

Making his U.S. debut, Polish heavyweight prospect Izu Ugonoh faced a stiff test in 2012 U.S. Olympian Dominic Breazeale, who in his last fight had challenged Anthony Joshua for a heavyweight world title.

Not far out from the fight date, Jermall Charlo deciding to vacate his 154-pound world title meant that a scheduled title eliminator bout between Tony Harrison and Jarrett Hurd immediately had larger implications.
