All Access Daily: Thurman-Garcia (Part 2)

Check out the second installment of Showtime’s four-part digital series on Keith Thurman vs Danny Garcia.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

Now only two days away from their big welterweight fight on CBS, Showtime releases the second installment of ALL ACCESS Daily - Thurman vs Garcia. In this episode we watch Danny Garcia go through his final paces to cut weight ahead of this weekend’s title unification as he heads off to New York for fight week.

“Ali said it best: ‘suffer now and live the rest of your life like a king.’ I live by that quote” -Danny Garcia

In the next segment we catch up with Keith Thurman in his hotel room as he answers questions about the task at hand. Thurman reflects on his past experiences fighting in NYC, and is appreciative of the great fans and atmosphere the city has for boxing.

“At the end of the day it’s just the love, the love and respect that they have for boxing.” - Keith Thurman

Finally we flash back to Danny Garcia as he watches the first episode of the series, particularly the clip with a very animated Thurman screaming at the camera...

“You doing a lot of talking,” Garcia said. “He ain’t working out. He’s psyching himself out. He gonna knock himself out.”

Stay tuned tomorrow for Part 3...
