About Time! Dont fight, then let the belts go!!According to WBC President @wbcmoro, @keithonetimethurman (28-0, 22 KOs) has vacated the WBC welterweight title.
Thurman has been inactive since March of 2017, when he won a twelve round split decision over Danny Garcia to unify the WBA, WBC world titles.
After the win over Garcia, Thurman underwent surgery for an elbow injury and remained on the shelf for the rest of the year. He was scheduled to fight against on May 19th, but he then withdrew from the contest after suffering a hand injury in camp. No opponent had been set for his return.
As a result of Thurman's decision, the @wbcboxing has ordered @showtimeshawnp and @dannyswiftgarcia to fight for the vacant belt. Thurman, who still holds the WBA's super title, will have the option to get an immediate crack at the winner when he returns. #KeithThurman #GarciaPorter #PorterGarcia#247promokings #247pk - #regrann
