Sammy Vasquez and Luis Collazo meet at the Crossroads on FS1

Sammy Vasquez - This Thursday night the PBC on FS1 presents a fight card with depth beyond the main event between once beaten Sammy Vasquez and gate keeper Luis Collazo. It's not as though the top of the bill isn't important to each man’s career but you could make an argument the undercard has just as much on the line. Yordenis Ugas takes on Levan 'The Wolfman' Ghvamichava, a very fitting nickname when you see this guy's body hair, in a scrap that is crucial at this stage for both. Also, in what I believe to be the opener, Ryan Karl meets Eddie Ramirez in a battle unbeaten junior welterweights.
