Keith Thurman promises to put on a show against Luis Collazo

Keith ‘One Time’ Thurman wants to bring boxing back to his home state of Florida

KEITH THURMAN is promising fireworks when he defends his WBA ‘Regular’ world welterweight title against Luis Collazo in Florida this Saturday.

The unbeaten American will be fighting in his home state for the first time since 2009 and is coming off the back of an exciting points victory over Robert Guerrero in March.

The 26-year-old is hoping to reignite the love affair with boxing in a state that has produced fighters like Roy Jones Jr, Winky Wright and Jeff Lacy.
