Luis Collazo is Open To Facing Keith Thurman Next

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

Golden Boy Promotions is interested in a potential fight between Keith Thurman (22-0, 20KOs), who holds the WBA's interim-welterweight title, and WBA International champion Luis Collazo (35-5, 18 KOs), who scored a sensational two round knockout of Victor Ortiz on Thursday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Thurman is scheduled to return at the end of April, which gives Collazo more than enough time to get ready if a deal comes together.

Collazo told BoxingScene.com that he tried to get a fight with Thurman last month, but the big puncher instead faced Jesus Soto Karass on the Broner-Maidana undercard. If Golden Boy wants to match him against Thurman, Collazo is ready to face Thurman. 

"I tried to get Keith Thurman the fight before this one, but it didn't happen. He went and fought Soto Karass. I'm ready to fight whoever that my promoter, Golden Boy, and my team, want me to fight. Whoever they want me to fight - that's who I'm fighting," Collazo told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll;14191763]It's funny how people are. Canelo was "rushed" with 50 fights yet Deontay Wilder is moving too slow despite the fact that he only has 30 fights.[/QUOTE] IMO wilder is being moved along at a fine pace,, he is very…

No easy money for Thurman. Collazo is not a face first looping brawler like the last guy. He is a tough and clever southpaw who would make it difficult for Thurman at times and time him for a number of…
