Juan Diaz pounds out 9th Round TKO vs Julio Diaz !

Juan “The Baby Bull Diaz” started punching in round one and didn’t stop until Julio Diaz was unable to answer the bell in the 9th round, scoring a TKO over his Mexican Counterpart in Chicago. Juan Diaz (33-0, 17KOs) said after the fight, “I thought Julio was going to box me more but he came to fight. That surprised me. I was able to lure him into my kind of fight, a toe to toe action fight. Julio had decent power which also surprised me.” But Julio’s power was not enough. After the fight, Julio Diaz (34-4, 25 KOs) said, “I couldn’t get started tonight. Juan has a lot of energy. I tightened up when I tried to overpower him. Juan’s a hyper kid with a lot of heart.”
When asked about his future, Juan said he would like Manny Pacquiao to move up in weight and challenge him for his title. Said Diaz, “It’s great if Pacquiao moves up to the lightweight limit of 135 pounds. I’d like to show my talents against a fighter of his skills. Pacquiao just fought an older Mexican warrior. Now he ought to fight a young Mexican warrior like me.”
