Sugar Shane Mosley and Luis Collazo met face-to-face to officially announce their upcoming championship fight coming February 10th at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. Mosley (43-4, 1 NC 37 KO’s) a three-time world champion in three weight divisions, says he understands the type of opponent he is facing at the “Battle at the Bay,” and will do everything to ensure a victory.
“I had two opponents to choose from for this fight, Kermit Cintron and Luis Collazo, and in the end Kermit had some problems and we decided on Collazo,” said Mosley. “Luis is a difficult fighter, because he is a south paw and he is going to come with everything to try and beat me.”
“However, my goal is to continue to win and I will win this fight,” said Mosley who returns to Mandalay Bay where he defeated Fernando “Feroz” Vargas by knockout in the sixth round on July 15, 2006.
Luis Collazo (27-2, 13 KO’s), the former WBA welterweight world champion and in his last fight defeated Armenian Artur Atadzhanov by knockout in the sixth round on November 4, 2006, emphasizes that he is the uncrowned world champion after his controversial fight against Ricky Hatton.
“This is my time and I believe that it is time for Shane to pass the torch,” said Collazo. “I want to be the new world champion and on February 10th I will melt Sugar. Puerto Rico and the boricuas from New York will be very proud of me.”
