A Danny Garcia fan almost got a bit too close for comfort for WBA welterweight world champion Keith ‘One Time’ Thurman this past weekend.
Thurman was in attendance ringside at Danny Garcia’s latest victory over Samuel Vargas. A fight Garcia won by 7th round TKO to set up the highly anticipated showdown with Thurman next March.
There was a heated post-fight interview exchange between the two afterwards, as well as back and forth verbal exchanges ringside.
But some of the fans also got involved and added their own voices to the fiery exchange.
This Danny Garcia fan below can be heard telling Thurman to his face that in his opinion he had no resume, was going to get taken out by a body shot, along with some other choice pieces of language.
A brave man to say this to a world champion’s face:

Fair play to Thurman for keeping his composure and staying classy on that one.
Both Thurman and Garcia got into it themselves briefly in Garcia’s post-fight interview and you could clearly see the tension and bad blood between the two on display.
Thurman’s ‘Cheery Picker’ jibe at Garcia in particularly recently really seems to have annoyed both Garcia and his father Angel Garcia.
Expect some big bombs to be thrown when these two get it on next year.
