veterinarian Luis Corazo Back in the ring Wednesday night in Plant City, Florida. Angel Ruiz At the White Sands Event Center. The 41-year-old lefty, who turned pro in 2000, buzzed in the first, recovered, hit the floor in the third, came back, and stubbornly stayed there. However, in the sixth round, a nasty right to his body put him on the mat and Corazo failed to make the 10 count.
Brooklyn native Collazo spoke to Claudia Trejos in the ring after the finish. “Well, I’ll go ahead and see what God has planned for me.” Afterwards, Ruiz took Corrazo by the hand and thanked him for the match.
Collazo, the 2005 welterweight title list, turned 42 on Saturday and went 39-8.
The 25-year-old Ruiz entered 17-2-1 and had impressive muscle.
Both men fight as southpaws.
The junior middleweight contest looked like it could be a short night, but Lewis’ power was evident. He rang the colazo that became Florida’s home, standing still before putting his feet back together. A replay showed that the jab scrambled Lewis a bit.
Ah, but he recovered and in the second round Collazo warmed up. His hand speed is better than it is now.
Then in the third round, Luis Collazo went down. He hurt him with a one-two and knocked him to the mat with a clipping left cross. he beat the count. His corner asked him if it was okay to continue after the round. He said yes. Let’s see if we can recover.
In the fourth, Collazo moved smartly and Luis joined him by waving. He was hanging out, Corazo did, so instead of saying hell, I can retire again right now. but the fifth, the energy remained high. “I hope you don’t get hurt there,” trainer Willy Vargas told Collazo before the sixth.
Luis Corazo was down at the start of the sixth inning and did not beat the count. Right hand to bread basket, short, not too sweet.
Ghana’s ProBox Wednesday Night Streaming Opener Prince Octopus Zany (23-0) vs Mexico Jose Salas (11-0 included), 10 or less in a 122 lb scrap set. Salas got his W. His smart moves, stamina and accuracy shook the judges UD10 with a score of 110-89, three times his score.
Whitesands Events Center’s 38-year-old Dzanie was lucky enough to get the right hand early on. The 21-year-old Salas moved mostly laterally and his energy remained strong as the round progressed. If you thought he was fighting in hiding in Tijuana, this was his first fight out of Tijuana.
Analysts Paul Malignaggi and Chris Algeri and hit-and-run Mike Goldberg gave Salas a little prop.
Dzanie knew he needed to make up for lost rounds and fired his gun in round eight. And I’ll take it back, Salas’ combo when he kept moving impressed me.
It intrigued me that Salas might have been sneakily introduced as someone more accomplished than the B-side. Dzanie rose again in his ninth, he pressed harder and yes, Salas really hustle to keep his chin safe. Salas scored a knockdown at the end of round 9 with a crisp left smashing bang to his forehead. Salas realized he was 10th and Dzanie wasn’t throwing in the towel, but he finished smart and strong.
Welterweight Plus Battle Pit In Vadim Musaev (5-0, 2 KOs, from Russia, living in Florida) Martin Alvarez (from Mexico; 7-0, 6 K) was played before the main event featuring Luis Collazo.
Set to 8 rounds or less. This was Alvarez’s first fight outside of Mexico.
First, the left fell and stopped Alvarez. I also dropped it smartly. Just before that, Musaev threw a sharp looping to his left. I think Alvarez expected it. Musaev used a super-short left with a downward movement to confuse the loser. I was. Ended by TKO at 2 minutes and 3 seconds in the first round.
