After returning to the ring in 2012 following a year long layoff, New York native Luis Collazo (33-5, 17 KO's) has looked in prime form in recent wins over Steven
Upsher Chambers and Miguel Callist. Now hoping to get back into the race
to regain the welterweight crown he wore from 2005-2006, the
32-year-old southpaw must first get past a hungry Sanchez in the FOX
Sports 1 main event on Sept 2.
Rapidly becoming a must-see fighter on the 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 first-round technical
knockout win over of Artemio Reyes, avenging a loss from their first
encounter in 2010, and scoring recent knockouts over Manuel Leyva and
Miguel Angel Munguia. Now he steps up to the big time against Collazo,
but the Fairfield, Calif. 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
battles the best opposition possible, including Nonito Donaire, who
handed Martinez his first professional loss in their April 2009 title
fight. Now looking to get back to the top and fulfill his promise at 31
years old, Martinez plans on giving his hometown fans a show to remember
A native of Sinaloa, Mexico who now fights 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
former World Champions Leo Santa Cruz and Eric Morel have prepared him
for anything Martinez has for him on fight night.
