@realluiscollazo LUIS COLLAZO “My preparation was for 15 rounds so we’re ready to go the distance. I’m here for the long haul. “I’m trying to pull off the upset again. Anything can happen in this sport, one punch can end everything, so we’ll see what happens on Saturday. “With the Khan fight I showed myself how much passion I still have for the sport. This fight here, everyone is going to see the old Luis Collazo again. “I’m the type of guy who doesn’t like to plan ahead. I’m the underdog and I love being the underdog. I’ve been the underdog all my life. It inspires me to go out there and show the fans that anything is possible not just in the ring, but in life. “I’m going to give it my all, that’s the type of person I am. I didn’t come here for handout so I hope he’s prepared.”
