I think collazo's got a good chance ,he edged Hatton,is 10 years younger ,should be hungrier 'hope he's got good corner men that can help him,he could do it but is not going to be easy,Mostley is still one tuff mother,it should be a good one

From fightnews

In a battle of former world champions, 35-year-old Shane Mosley (44-4, 37 KOs), in his first title fight as a welterweight since 2002, won a twelve round unanimous decision over Luis Collazo (26-3, 12 KOs) to claim the WBC interim welterweight title. Collazo was cut over the left eye by an unintentional head butt in round four. Mosley dominated the fight, finally dropping Collazo at the end of round eleven. Scores were 118-109, 119-108, 118-109.

In a WBC super lightweight eliminator, former WBA titlist Vivian Harris (27-2-1, 18 KOs) won a hard fought twelve round unanimous decision over Juan Lazcano (37-3-1, 27 KOs). Scores were 114-113, 115-112, 115-112. Harris earned a shot at WBC champ Junior Witter with the win

Did anyone enjoy the Harris v Lazcano fight as much as I did? Like most people I have a soft spot for the underdog in most cases and to see him get inside like that and start battling was awesome I thought. It was obvious in terms of talent and skill Harris was far superior but his arrogance almost cost him the fight.

All he had to do was keep Lazcano on the outside with his jab and he could of walked away with the fight easily. I'm glad he didn't though becuase it was much closer and exciting than it probably would have been.

The Mosley v Collazo fight was pretty good as well. It went about like I thought it would but I was hoping for Mosley to knock out Collazo even though it looked like he wasn't going to be able to. The knockdown didn't really phase Collazo he was just off balance. One thing I did like to see was Collazo losing heart as the fight when on. Could see the disappointment on his face when he was sitting in his corner between rounds. He knew it was over.

Who should Mosley fight next?

I was also pulling for Lazcano big time. He is always at the local Scaramento fights & is a nice guy.

I agree with you Harris did not fight the smartest fight & it was a pretty good action fight.
I kept remembering Harris getting ko'd by Moussa & thinking Juan still has a chance.

As for who Mosley should fight thats gonna be a tough one.
Alot of big names already have fights lined up til summer. Mayweather, De La Hoya(who I dont think he will ever fight again) Cotto, Margarito & Paul Williams.

Molsey could fight Cintron for the IBF title.
If not there are a few interesting matchups but they dont make much sense for Shane. Such as Baldomir or Clottey.

I was rooting for Juan he is always at the Sacramento fights here & is a nice guy.

I dont have a pic but he signed a glove for me.
