After returning to the ring in 2012 following a year long layoff, New York native Luis Collazo (33-5, 17 KO’s) has looked to be in prime form in his wins over Steve Upsher Chambers and Miguel Callist. Now hoping to get back into the race to regain the welterweight crown he wore in 2005-06, the 32-year-old southpaw must first get past Sanchez in the FOX Sports 1 main event on September 2.
Rapidly becoming a must see fighter on the Southern California fight scene, 22-year-old Alan Sanchez (12-2-1, 6 KO’s) will fight in Texas for the first time riding a seven fight winning streak that includes a loss avenging first round TKO of Artemio Reyes and recent knockouts of Manuel Leyva and Miguel Angel Munguia. Now he will step up to the big time against Collazo, but the Fairfield, California native is ready for the spotlight.
Seen by most boxing observers as one of the best boxers to not win a title in the current era, San Antonio’s Raul Martinez (29-3, 17 KO’s) has always given a supreme effort in the ring as he battled the best opposition possible, including Nonito Donaire, who handed Martinez his first pro loss in their April 2009 title fight. Now looking to get back to the top and fulfill his promise at 31, Martinez plans on giving his hometown fans a show to remember this September.
A Sinaloa native now fighting out of Los Angeles, 29-year-old Daniel Quevedo (13-13-3, 8 KO’s) has a deceptive record, because when the bell rings, he is as tough as they come. A rugged competitor who has been stopped only once in his eight year career, Quevedo’s battles with the likes of Leo Santa Cruz and Eric Morel have prepared him for anything Martinez has for him on fight night.
