Keith Thurman stopped Luis Collazo when Collazo quit after the seventh round because of blood from a cut dripping into his right eye Saturday in Tampa, Florida, near Thurman’s hometown of Clearwater.

Thurman (26-0, 22 knockouts) clearly landed more and harder punches but had to survive being hurt by a left to the body late in the fifth round to record the victory. Thurman was leading 69-94, 69-64 and 68-65 after seven rounds.

Collazo (36-7, 19 KOs), cut below the right eyebrow as the result of an accidental headbutt in the sixth, said between the seventh and eighth rounds that he was unable to continue because he couldn’t see out of the eye.

A full report will follow.
