Collazo headlines Labor Day card

After the Labor Day BBQ you can settle in and watch live boxing.

That’s because former welterweight titlist Luis Collazo will face Alan Sanchez in the scheduled 10-round main event on Sept. 2 (Fox Sports 1 and Fox Deportes, 9 p.m. ET) at the Cowboys Dancehall in San Antonio, Texas, Golden Boy Promotions announced.

The card is the second installment of the company’s new twice-monthly Monday night “Golden Boy Live” series.

In the co-feature, San Antonio's Raul Martinez squares off with Mexico's Daniel Quevedo in an eight-round junior featherweight fight.

Although Collazo (33-5, 17 KOs), a 32-year-old southpaw from New York, has lost his three highest-profile fights, decisions to Ricky Hatton (a very debatable one), Shane Mosley and Andre Berto (in a tremendous action fight), he has won his past two fights and is one of a number of name welterweights in Golden Boy’s deep stable. A win against Sanchez (12-2-1, 6 KOs), 22, of Fairfield, Calif., who is riding a seven-fight winning streak, could propel him into another high-profile bout.

Martinez (29-3, 17 KOs), 31, has come up short in two world title fights, a fourth-round knockout to Nonito Donaire in a 2009 flyweight title bout and a sixth-round technical decision to Rodrigo Guerrero in a 2011 junior bantamweight title fight. Martinez is also coming off a four-round decision loss to sub-.500 Omar Gonzalez in April, so this is a must-win for him if he has any prayer of contending again. Quevedo (13-13-3, 8 KOs), 29, is 0-2-1 in his past three fights.
