The fight right before the Floyd Mayweather-Marcos Maidana fight on Saturday night featured the debut of Amir Khan in this division, and overall he definitely put on a show and confirmed that he’s one of the fastest young risers the sport has today. When all was said and done, Khan defeated Luis Collazo via unanimous decision.
Khan improved to 29-3 in his career with the win and this one was not without any controversy as both fighters were docked points in this one for some unorthodox tactics. Although, Collazo was the one that was playing the dirtiest.
Now, Khan will await the winner of the main event between Mayweather and Maidana to see if he can really put himself on the map and establish himself as one of the best in the world in the welterweight division.
