Joseph Jo Jo Diaz Looks to put the Gold, Back In Golden Boy


Golden Boy Promotions - PortraitsSince making his pro debut back in 2012, former olympian Joseph Diaz Jr has so far had a successful career in professional boxing. The rising star known as “JoJo” has been very busy showcasing his skills on Fox Sports 1, Showtime Extreme and has been on various undercards for top billed fights.

Diaz, who is undefeated, with 14 wins and no losses is now making another major move in his young career. He will be main eventing on the return of LA Fight Club that is being promoted by Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions. The scheduled monthly boxing series that is set to debut March 6th, will showcase some of the young talent in the Los Angeles area and will be broadcasted on Fox Sports 1 and Fox Deportes.

The show which was started a few years back, and had major success, has produced fighters that have gone on to win world titles on platforms such as HBO and Showtime, and its an exciting series for boxing fans in the area who are looking to attend a remarkable event at a low cost.

“March 6th is going to be a great card. I’m excited to be the main event at LA FIGHT CLUB.”

Said Diaz, who is going to be facing the tough, Giovanni Delgado of Mexico. The fight is a scheduled 10 round bout that is set to be held at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles. A place Diaz will definitely have the crowd on his side.

His opponent, Giovanni Delgado is coming off of a 4th round TKO of Aaron Olivares, and has an exceptional record of 15 wins with 2 losses. The only downfall here is that Delgado has been inactive since October of 2013, which will be a total of 16 months on the day of the fight. Inactivity could and most likely will play a major role in the fight, as Diaz is far more active fighting almost every 3-4 months if not sooner.

None the less, Diaz should not get confident as every fight is a tough fight and Delgado is no exception.

With his busy schedule, JoJo is certain to soon be getting a lot more competitive fights. A young talented fighter, who is working his way up the ranks. He is one of the few hot olympians that is not advised by Al Haymon, so he isn’t being detained of showing exactly what he is capable of doing in the ring. Diaz is sure to be involved in some lucrative fights. The super bantamweight division and its sister divisions have some exciting match ups awaiting, but for now, March 6th is his focus.

“It’s going to be a really great night of boxing. I am very excited to be fighting in my hometown as well. My hometown fans are very excited to come out to support me. Come March 6 I will be ready to give everyone a great show and give the fans a great night of boxing.”
