By Press Release | December 11, 2013
JESUS SOTO KARASS:

"He is going to give it his best, but he is going to see that I am hands on.  I have put more effort and concentration into my career than he has.  I admit that I am the more daring fighter and Thurman has never fought someone with my mentality," stated welterweight contender Jesus Soto Karass, who spoke at the open workout ahead of his highly-anticipated clash with undefeated interim WBA welterweight champion Keith Thurman. Check out what else he had to say!

Jesus Soto Karass, Welterweight Contender:

"Keith Thurman doesn't have a weakness.  He's a young fighter and he's strong.  He is going to give it his best, but he is going to see that I am hands on.  I have put more effort and concentration into my career than he has.  I admit that I am the more daring fighter and Thurman has never fought someone with my mentality. 

"God willing I will fight the winner of Broner vs. Maidana.

"I have prepared well and I have no fear of Thurman because I have fought tougher fights.  We're going to give it our all in the ring."
