Watch: Boxer's embarrassing post-fight miscue

Yahoo Sports

Keith Thurman, wanna get away?

In a scene straight out of a Southwest Airlines commercial, the welterweight boxer thanked the wrong city after his impressive victory over Diego Chaves.

Moments after a 10th-round stoppage win over Chaves, for which the undefeated Thurman would later win "Knockout of the Night," he uttered a line he would probably like to have back.

After interviewer Jim Gray's first question (around the 1:03 mark of the video below), Thurman reels off a round of "thank yous" ... to God, his family, Showtime, etc. He also gives a shout-out to "this city right here, San Diego!"

Problem was, the fight was in San Antonio.

Boxer Keith Thurman is interviewed by Jim Gray.

Thurman recovers well and moves on. But, boy, that looks awkward.
