Thurmans's first amateur fight was in 1997. He was trained by the late Benjamin Getty who worked with Sugar Ray Leonard. Getty took Thurman under his belt as a child and helped shape him into the fighter he is today. Thurman is now coached by Dan Birmingham. Thurman finished his amateur career with 101 victories (76 KO's), he won 6 National Championships including the 2006 PAL National Championships. In 2007 he lost twice to world champion Demetrius Andrade at the Olympic Trials and won the Silver Medal. 
Keith Thurman is an extremely confident, tough, orthodox fighter. He possesses a balanced combination of power, speed, awareness, stamina, size, endurance, skills, and ring generalship, as well as a granite chin. Thurman is an accurate and efficient counter-puncher with quick countering ability. His top-notch defensive skills include the ability to block punches, move his head to protect himself, and give opponents different looks throughout the bout — although he appears to leave himself open when throwing combinations of punches. His skill level is similar to a prime Kostya Tszyu. Thurman has decisive defensive prowess, an uncanny ability for knowing when and where to place power-shots, and is able to fight effectively inside or outside with power in both fists. Thurman is a well-known student of the boxing game.
