Thurman vs. Collazo for July 11th
Keith “One Time” Thurman is likely out of the Floyd Mayweather sweepstakes for September as ESPN.com is reporting he will be facing veteran tough guy Luis Collazo on July 11th to serve as the first PBC broadcasted card on ESPN. Thurman has been wanting to face Collazo every since Collazo beat Victor Ortiz in 2014, but was unable to get the bout signed. Collazo on the other hand is in a place in his career he has been often up against the wall against the “a-side” hoping to pull off another upset.
The opening bout is rumored to be Tony Harrison versus Willie Nelson in a battle of junior middleweights that could be a front runner for fighter of the year when looking at the styles both hold.
The bout will happen in Tampa, Florida.
