Luis Collazo: I Think Amir Khan is Overlooking Me

By Edward Chaykovsky

Former welterweight champion Luis Collazo (35-5, 18KOs) believes British star Amir Khan (28-3, 19KOs) is looking past him. They are set to battle in the co-featured slot to the Showtime Pay-Per-View where Floyd Mayweather Jr will face Marcos Maidana in the main event.

If Khan defeats Collazo, and Mayweather beats Maidana, the two of them are likely going to fight in the fall.

"Yes, he is [overlooking me]. At least that's what I'm hearing. On May 3, I'm going across the ring once that bell rings, you know, and he's just got to get ready. I know I'm getting ready, and I hope he's getting ready the same way, because we've got to give the boxing fans what they want, some excitement," Collazo said.

Khan feels his speed might be too much for Collazo, who disagrees. In 2009, Collazo lost a close decision to Andre Berto. Some felt Collazo had done enough to win that fight. Collazo feels Berto is faster than Khan.

"He's got great speed; but I think he might be a little bit slower than Andre Berto was. And that was a big fight for me. Come fight night we'll definitely see if his speed is going to be a factor or not," Collazo said.

LUIS is not and he's never been a puncher so boxing fans improvised SHUT UP!!! LUIS is a highly skilled boxer and he will win out boxing KHAN. Speed or not speed,BERTO is a welterweight instead KHAN is a superlightweight so perhaps the real factor decisive will be the weight,COLLAZO is more at ea...

[QUOTE=Lazakill]Every fight of his? You're completely clueless if you think berto is faster. not in a million years is he even close.[/QUOTE] LOL! Khan is fast, but Berto is likely faster because of his fluint combinations. I find it rather funny that Khan's opponents are able to catch his p...
