The Amir Khan-Luis Collazo welterweight fight promises to be an entertaining and competitive attraction on Saturday. The chief support to the Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Marcos Maidana fight has divided opinion, but former champ Ricky Hatton is better suited than most to analyze it.
Amir Khan tells RingTV.com’s Tom Gray that his disappointing 2013 may have set up a banner 2014, which starts with Saturday’s showdown with Luis Collazo, the co-feature to Mayweather-Maidana. “The career setbacks and fights falling through have allowed me to work on things in the gym,” Khan said.
RingTV’s Bill Emes spoke to Luis Collazo about his May 3 showdown with Amir Khan during an exclusive in-camp interview with the former welterweight titleholder, who looks confident and sharp in sparring and training.
Streaking veteran Luis Collazo will be after his fifth straight victory when he meets fellow former beltholder Amir Khan on the May 3 Floyd Mayweather-Marcos Maidana undercard at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Amir Khan says making 140 pounds has always been a drain on him, and that fighting at welterweight against Luis Collazo will make him a stronger, more energetic fighter.
