Our Tampa video production company was glad to partner on the exciting project filming with WBA champion, Keith Thurman. Thurman is the undefeated champion in the Welterweight class division and is preparing to defend his position March 7th, 2015 on NBC’s boxing special.

New Wave’s producer flew to St. Pete with their DP to coordinate the shoot with our Tampa video crew. The video segment and profile was filmed over the course of 2 days throughout St. Petersburg, FL. Litewave Media’s Christian Cashmir was a camera operator on the shoot while Harold “Pinky” Hood worked as a grip. The video profile on Keith included interviews with Thurman and people close to him, including his father and trainer, Dan Birmingham. One of the highlights of the production was filming in the historic St. Pete Boxing Club which Keith considers his second home.

Keith proudly explained that he now owns a portion of the St. Pete Boxing Club where he works to help younger boxers. When he is not training for his next fight, Keith helps amateur boxers train for their next fight.
