Khan Ready For Collazo on Mayweather-Maidana Bill

By Terence Dooley

Amir Khan will meet Luis Collazo on May 3rd.  The fight will be on Floyd Mayweather’s undercard as the American meets Argentine tough man Rene Marcos Maidana at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas for the WBC and WBA world welterweight titles held by “Pretty Boy”.

"I will be fighting Luis Collazo on 3 May in Las Vegas," the 27-year-old announced on Twitter.

Khan, 28-3 (19), will face Collazo, 35-5 (18) and coming off a big second-round KO over Victor Ortiz, with the winner presumably a contender for the next round in the Floyd Mayweather sweepstakes, assuming of course that Mayweather overcomes Madiana.
