Undefeated WBO strawweight world champion Oscar “El Pupilo” Collazo recently hosted a media workout ahead of his championship clash in upstate New York on June 7.

Collazo (9-0, 7 KOs) of Villaba, Puerto Rico, will face Gerardo Zapata (14-1-1) of Managua, Nicaragua, in a special 12-round fight that will be part of the International Boxing Hall of Fame’s Induction Weekend. The event, co-promoted with Miguel Cotto Promotions and broadcast on DAZN, will take place at Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, New York.

“I feel great – strong, fast and very excited for my third world title defense,” Collazo said. “We are one week and a half away from fight night. This camp has been perfect, we have a great game plan for Zapata and all the fans will see another masterpiece performance.

“Zapata is a tall, tough fighter that likes to fight, but we have 12 rounds to do our job and get a dominant victory. I am ready for the best version of Gerardo Zapata.

“I feel honored and blessed with this opportunity that DAZN, Miguel Cotto Promotions and Golden Boy has given me to headline this great card on June 7 at Turning Stone Resort Casino. I am thrilled and excited to give all my fans and Puerto Rico a big performance, with great ring IQ and explosive combinations.”
