Keith Thurman and Tim Tszyu traded trash talk today in their Q&A session on PBC’s Instagram site to market their March 30th headliner on Amazon Prime PPV at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Thurman (30-1, 22 KOs) got Tszyu (24-0, 17 KOs) irritated when he called him “timid” with how he was speaking during their kickoff press conference.

Tszyu fired back that he was going to knock him out in the second round of their 12-round non-title fight in Premier Boxing Champion’s kickoff event with Amazon Prime PPV.

Keith Thurman: “They picked some nice fights for you. Them dudes ain’t hungry like me, bro,” said ‘One Time’ on the Premier Boxing Champions Instagram site.

Tim Tszyu: “Hungry? You’ve been on a f**** vacation for five years. Hungry? What are you talking about, man?”

Thurman: “That’s what makes you hungry. You said you’re going to knock me out. You said it timidly. I’d like for you to say it with your chest. At the press conference, you were a little timid, like a little boy. You were talking about Christmas presents and all this stuff. Look, you’re happy, and I’m happy.”

Tszyu: “You got a big mouth; you like to talk too much.”

Thurman: “Baby, I like to excite the people. Were you not happy when you got that contract? Am I not the biggest name you’ve been in the ring with? Stop playing with yourself.”

Tszyu: “You’re not the best man.”

Thurman: “Because I walk. I only talk because I walk. You were born into it. I’ve lived this life since I was seven years old. This ain’t nothing new.”

Tszyu: “I’m going to show you why I was born into this life because I like to punch, and I like to fight. That’s what it is.”

Thurman: “Throw your best shot.”

Tszyu: “I will.”

Thurman: “What are you going to do, Tszyu? Throw your best shot.”

Tszyu: I’m going to knock you out in two.”

Thurman: “In two? I hope you don’t get wobbled. I hope you don’t do a pretty dance.”

Tszyu: “It ain’t going to happen on my side, brother.”
