Tonight starting at 9:00 pm EST, BLH will have live coverage of a Golden Boy Live! tripleheader from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, featuring the return of former welterweight titleholder "Vicious" Victor Ortiz, who will face Brooklyn's own Luis Collazo in the main event.
Ortiz has not been seen in the ring since a June 2012 loss to Josesito Lopez, where Ortiz's jaw was broken, causing the upset. He hasn't won a fight since April 2011, when he beat Andre Berto in an instant classic on HBO, which led to an infamous loss to Floyd Mayweather later that year.
Collazo has won three straight fights and the 32-year-old southpaw is anything but an easy win for Ortiz on paper. Collazo is a crafty, savvy ring veteran who has a style that could fluster the sometimes easily flustered Ortiz.
In the co-feature, undefeated junior middleweight prospects Eddie Gomez (15-0, 10 KO) and Daquan Arnett (11-0, 7 KO) square off in a very intriguing matchup, and the night's opening fight will see stalled featherweight prospect Gary Russell Jr (23-0, 13 KO) in with another on-paper soft touch in Miguel Tamayo (15-7-2, 13 KO).
We'll be here at 9 with live coverage of all the fights, so join us for this special Thursday night, Super Bowl week card!
