Ring Magazine names Luis Collazo Fighter of the Month

Brooklyn Nets CEO Brett Yormark, presents WBA International Welter weight champ with his Ring Magazine with his Fighter of the Month award at Barclays Center.

It’s no secret that Brooklyn native and current WBA International Welterweight Champion Luis Collazo is hoping to land a shot at facing pound-for-pound king Floyd “Money” Mayweather. In his quest, he has received the support of Brett Yormark, the CEO of Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. Yormark called a possible Mayweather-Collazo bout a “dream fight” for the arena.

“How great would it be for Brooklyn if the favorite son of Brooklyn fights this legendary fighter Floyd Mayweather? I think that goes down as, in many respects, the rational for what we want to do here,” said Yormark.

“Getting a chance to fight Floyd and prove I’m the best is definitely the goal,” said Collazo. “Now, getting a chance to fight Floyd at home [Brooklyn], that’s a whole different ballpark. That’s a dream.”
