Brooklyn reigns supreme on Long Island as Luis Collazo dominates Bryant Perrella

The Brooklyn native has now won two in a row and is now 38-7 in his solid career

Long Island and Brooklyn are one in the same. That is how it felt as the crowd at the Nassau Coliseum cheered on Luis Collazo in the undercard of the Andre Berto v. Devon Alexander fight card, hosted by Premier Boxing Champions. It worked, as Collazo decimated Bryant Perrella in a ten-round fight that had everything you could ask for.

Said Collazo after the fight:

“Perrella didn’t have much power, which allowed me to just stay on top of him and smother his punches and play the aggressor. 

Collazo (38-7) did not give up throughout the entire fight, giving Perrella (15-2) nothing to work with. Brooklyn’s own belted several shots to the face and even knocked Perrella down at one point. It wasn’t until round eight where both actually gave it their all. Besides that, the corner of Perrella was not helping his cause at all.

In one of the most questionable decisions of the night, the fight was called a majority decision win, with one judge scoring the contest a 95-95 draw. The overall numbers were 95,95, 98,92, 96-94. While he ended up getting the win, not giving Luis Collazo all three rounds was considered mind-blowing to several patrons at The Coliseum.

What is next for the 37 year old? A former WBA Welterweight champion, Collazo has now won two in a row. With enough rest, he could be ready for a title shot, if all goes according to plan. After sustaining a minimal amount of damage during this fight, the southpaw is ready to get back in the ring ASAP.

“I’ve had a lot of good fights that prepared me for this. I showed why I’m the veteran in there. I want the best in the division. I’m not getting any younger so I’m ready for any challenge.”
