Amir Khan Vows: I Will Beat Luis Collazo in Real Style!
Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

Amir Khan is confident he will show the world how much he has improved in his year out of the ring when he goes toe-to-toe with tricky southpaw Luis Collazo in Las Vegas on May 3.

The Bolton fighter had been hoping to take on Floyd Mayweather but will instead fight on his undercard after the American decided to fight Argentinian bruiser Marcos Maidana.

After several setbacks which saw the 27-year-old former unified light-welterweight world champion endure a frustrating 12 months and pass up the opportunity to take on Devon Alexander for the IBF welterweight title in December, Khan believes he will come back stronger.

The last time he entered the ring was last April in Sheffield when he defeated Julio Diaz.

"It was a difficult time," said Khan. "But the fact is I moved on fairly quick when I knew the Mayweather shot wasn't happening.

"It was just about refocusing my mind on the next opponent and luckily we were able to announce Luis Collazo straight away which allowed me the chance to get back in the ring as soon as possible.

"I wanted a tough challenge at welterweight and not just to go in there against some average guy. Collazo is a legitimate welterweight who is very confident after his win against Victor Ortiz but I know I have the tools to beat him."

Khan has spent time working with highly-rated American trainer Virgil Hunter over the last year in San Francisco and thinks the time spent on all aspects of his fighting will give him the edge to beat Collazo.

"You're going to see an improved Amir Khan, the best Amir Khan, there's no doubt in my mind about that," he said.

"Over the last 12 months I've been in camps with Virgil and we've been working on certain aspects of my game that I never really got the chance to work on because I just didn't get the time as I was fighting so often.

"Through the last few months I've been focusing on improving myself and adding certain things to my game. Because I didn't have an opponent lined up and I wasn't fighting I had the time to look at myself and work on things I wanted to work on.

"On May 3rd I'm going to put that all into practice on the biggest stage and not only beat Collazo but look to beat him in real style."

Without roach khan has looked like an amature like the way he looked after his Olympics . He should go back to roach. Roach can't give him a new chin but he can certainly help him win fights in style

Khan should have never dropped Roach. He's the only reason he was ever successful.
