The beach, a cabin in the mountains, Amir Khan’s face—Keith Thurman’s pondering what he wants to hit next.
Keith Thurman came home. Luis Collazo came hard. The end came too quickly. At least for Collazo.
How will 147-pound star Keith "One Time” Thurman fare fighting in his home state of Florida against Luis Collazo? Former 154-pound champion Sergio "The Latin Snake” Mora finds parallels between Saturday night's bout on ESPN and another fight from earlier in Thurman's career.
In the ring, Luis Collazo is like Day-Glo leg warmers, bedazzled jean shorts and spray-on hair: He just has a way of making you look bad.
Long layoffs aren’t anything new to Luis Collazo. He had nearly two years’ worth of downtime between fighting David Gogichaishvili and Franklin Gonzalez. Then it was six months to the next fight, a year to the one after that, and so on. Following his May 2014 loss to Amir Khan, Collazo didn’t get in the ring until April for a bounce-back victory over Christopher Degollado.
Sinkholes, death metal and the world’s longest continuous sidewalk. Tampa, Florida, has given us plenty.
