ANTONIO TARVER JR. “I’ve been training with the world champion Keith Thurman and I held my own in there. It’s been a great experience. “It’s a beautiful thing to be fighting in my home state. I’m blessed to be fighting at the Sun Dome. “My dad is always right in my ear. Always on me about the defense and protecting myself in the ring. “I’m a southpaw who’s a fast hitter. I can hit hard and counter punch. I think of myself as the whole package.”
