Oscar Collazo stops Garen Diagan in six rounds to retain title

Oscar Collazo successfully defended his world title when he faced Garen Diagan live on DAZN from Coliseo Roberto Clemente in San Juan, Puerto Rico on Saturday, August 26. The contest featured Newark, New Jersey’s WBO minimumweight champion against Filipino contender.

The scheduled for 12 rounds world championship bout ended half way through. Collazo took the victory via retirement, as Diagan wouldn’t come out to start Round 7.

With the win, Collazo made the first successful defense of the belt that he claimed against former titleholder Melvin Jerusalem in May. The undefeated 26-year-old improved to 8-0, 6 KOs.

27-year-old Diagan dropped to 10-6, 5 KOs and failed his first attempt to become champion. The defeat snapped his two-win streak.

“I want to thank God, my team, Miguel Cotto Promotions, Golden Boy, DAZN and all of Puerto Rico for the support to get to this victory. I knew he was going to break down eventually. We had the strong jab, the physical, and the mental pressure that got us the victory. Puerto Ricans know how to celebrate, and we will do a lot of it tonight,” said Oscar Collazo.

In the UK and Australia, the fight airs live on Sunday, August 27.
