Khan is lighting Collazo up right now but not doing a ton of damage; Collazo is throwing but he’s only landing punches that don’t hit much but arms. Close round but Khan still did more. Khan 10-9, 60-53
Round 7: Collazo is more active to start as Khan is repeating what has worked well so far this fight. Collazo isn’t cutting off the ring in any meaningful way and Khan is out working him in every aspect. Collazo is landing more than he did earlier in the fight … but Khan is landing cleaner and more emphatically. Khanis outworking hi as Collazo is trying to taunt Khan into a firefight .. and Khan is just casually ignoring all this and making easy work of him. 10-9 Khan, 70-62
Round 8: Collazo nut shots Khan to start the round and loses a point for it. Khan takes some time to recover and we’re back to a more spirited version of what we just saw last round.

Khan comes out and lands some big shots after the point deduction. Khan 9-8, 79-70

He’s doing just enough to win right now as Collazo is throwing some nice shots. Collazo would’ve done some damage if he could land flush but Khan is fighting smart right now. Collazo may be throwing more but he’s not landing clean. Khan is. 10-9 Khan, 89-79

Round 11: Collazo complains about something again but nothing from the ref. Khan is covering up and playing some defense again. Khan may have gassed himself at the end of 10th. some nice combinations as Khan is throwing and then covering up deep, letting Collazo land against his arms. Collazo wants a war and Khan isn’t giving it to him. Not much action this round as Khan is doing just enough to win it. Collazo isn’t letting him, though, as he’s staying busier. Collazo is head hunting but Khan isn’t doing much. Collazo, almost by default. 10-9 Collazo, 108-95
Round 12: Khan takes a huge nut shot to start the round, flopping down hilariously, as both guys get warned. Collazo for landing low and Khan for pulling on the back of the head. No point deduction this time. Khan is riding this round out as Collazo is looking for a big knockout. Apparently getting hit in the nuts woke something up as Khan is getting more active.
