Harris-Lazcano Lands on Mosley-Collazo Card

LOS ANGELES – The stakes will be higher than ever for Juan Lazcano and Vivian Harris on Saturday, Feb. 10th, when the two highly regarded contenders battle it out in a 12-round WBC super lightweight elimination bout which is the co-featured attraction of the “Battle At The Bay” card at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

“Battle At The Bay” – Sugar Shane Mosley vs. Luis Collazo, and Vivian Harris vs. Juan Lazcano will air live on HBO World Championship Boxing at 9:45 PM EST / 6:45 PM PST.

“Both Juan Lazcano and Vivian Harris are at the top of their games, and as far as I’m concerned, this matchup is as good as, if not better, than a world title fight,” said Oscar De La Hoya, President of Golden Boy Promotions.  “These are two veterans with a lot on the line, and it may be safe to say that while the winner goes on to fight for the championship, the loser may have to re-evaluate his career and where he’s headed.  That type of pressure always makes for a great fight.”

An entertaining boxer-puncher known to fight fans as ‘The Hispanic Causin’ Panic’, El Paso’s Juan Lazcano (37-3-1, 27 KOs) is always a crowd pleaser and never afraid of a good scrap.  A former IBA and NABF lightweight champion, Lazcano moved to the 140-pound weight class in 2005 and has been impressive in putting together a four fight win streak that includes wins over solid contenders Ben Tackie and Courtney Burton.  In his last fight, on October 21st, Lazcano pounded out a hard-fought ten round decision over Manuel Garnica.

A native of Guyana who now makes his home in Brooklyn, New York, hard-hitting Vivian Harris (27-2-1, 18 KOs) has long been one of boxing’s most avoided practitioners.  A pro since 1997, Harris finally got his break in 2002, when he fought and knocked out Diosbelys Hurtado to win the WBA junior welterweight championship.  He defended the crown three times before an upset loss to Carlos Maussa in 2005, but with back to back comeback wins over Marteze Logan and Stevie Johnston, ‘Vicious’ Vivian is ready to challenge for the crown once again.

Tickets to “Battle At The Bay” are priced at $300, $200, $100 and $50 and are on sale now.  Tickets will be sold at any Mandalay Bay box office and all Las Vegas Ticketmaster locations (Smith’s Food and Drug Centers, Macy’s stores and Ritmo Latino).  To charge by phone with a major credit card, call the Mandalay Bay box office at (702) 632-7580 or Ticketmaster at (702) 474-4000.  Tickets also are available for purchase at www.mandalaybay.com or www.ticketmaster.com.

[QUOTE=RunW/Knives]Are you Mosley's lawyer? even at that you'd have a difficult case to make when your only grounds are based on him thinking Mosley is boring.[/QUOTE] so a guy that formally had the highest KO percentage in boxing at a time and has the fastest hands at his or anyweight right ...
