SAMMY VASQUEZ JR.
 
"Luis Collazo is a really tough opponent. He's always game. It doesn't matter who he fights. I always enjoyed watching him growing up because he's quick, strong and savvy.
 
"This is a fight I've been looking forward to. Collazo has fought everyone and he always gives a great fight. I couldn't have thought of anybody better to have a great fight on television against. Everyone who knows the two of us, knows we're going to come to fight.
 
"He's never really been knocked out, just the mishap in the Thurman fight. Collazo hurt Thurman, and that's a guy in his prime. Collazo isn't in his prime, but age is just a number in this sport.
 
"We're prepared. We know he's a southpaw just like my last opponent. We were originally supposed to face him before Felix Diaz stepped in. The game plan is for me to dictate how this fight goes. I have to set the pace and control it.
 
"As long as I can control the fight, it's smooth-sailing for me. I know he's got a hard head and he's going to come forward, so I think it's going to be an exciting fight."

LUIS COLLAZO
 
"Sammy is a tough fighter. He's been moving up in the ranks and faced some decent opposition. We're both lefties and I think it's going to be an explosive fight.
 
"This is another tough fight for me. I've been in there with the top guys and everyone knows I'm going to give it my all. I'm grateful to be back in this position. There are great fight fans here in Mississippi and I'm going to give them something to cheer about.
 
"I'm blessed to be able to do what I love to do and I do it with passion and drive. I hope everyone enjoys what happens on Thursday night, because I know I will.
 
"I've been in this game for 17 years as a pro. I've seen every type of fighter. We'll find out Thursday night how much I have left. Sometimes fighters can get counted out, but people don't understand what's going on behind the scenes. My preparation for this fight was great and we'll find out Thursday if it translates to the ring."

Levan has the same body hair as our very own Anorak!

Fuuuuuk. That dude got balls to show up to a weigh in like that... to take his shirt off period. I'd look like him though if I didn't shave, rofl.

Somebody should've told that guy to take his sweater off for the pictures.

Holy cow!.. Ghvamichava is in dire need of a wax job.. Ugas should see past the hair and chalk up a WIN.
