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.”
