One of Brooklyn’s most respected fighters, Luis Collazo has earned another shot at the top of the welterweight division on July 11th. In April of this year, Collazo made a statement with a second round TKO of Christopher Degollado at Barclays Center. A world champion in 2005, Collazo has faced top fighters his whole career. Most notably in recent years, he delivered an electrifying second round knockout over Victor Ortiz in December 2014. Collazo will look to use his experience and guile to upset Keith Thurman.
11th. The Detroit-native has gotten off to a blazing start in 2015, already knocking out Antwone Smith and Pablo Munguia in impressive fashion. The supremely talented fighter now steps up in competition and hopes to keep his undefeated record intact when he faces Nelson.
