Berto-Collazo II update!

By Lee Bates

WBC has granted an extension date of August 13th to the parties of WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto (25-0,19 KOs) and former WBA welterweight champion Luis Collazo (30-4,15 KOs). The purse bid was to have been scheduled for today, July 17th, at the WBC offices in Mexico City. Berto narrowly defeated Collazo by decision in their bout this past January. Each fighter has had one fight since then. Berto easily decisioned Juan Urango in May, while Collazo, to keep busy, stopped journeyman David Gogichaishvili in June.
