Diaz Unifies Titles Destroys Freitas

WBA Lightweight Champion Juan Diaz took on WBO Lightweight Champion Acelino Freitas in what was expected by most to be an exciting battle between a rising star and an accomplished veteran. Diaz (32-0, 15KO’s) pressured Freitas (38-1, 31 KO’s) from the opening bell forcing Freitas against the ropes. Once Freitas was against the ropes, Diaz would unload powerful combinations landing with accuracy and precision.
Freitas looked tired and discouraged after round five during which he was stunned and badly hurt. Diaz continued to apply pressure landing strong left jabs which stopped Freitas from being able to set his punches. Freitas took a significant amount of punishment in rounds seven and eight. Freitas didn’t answer the bell for round nine.
Diaz who is only 23, said that he is looking to fight any of the champions out there and he looks for a dream fight against Manny Paquiao.
