According to ESPN’s Mike Coppinger, a 135 bout between Ryan Garcia and Joseph Diaz Jr is being discussed for a date this Fall. Jojo Diaz is coming off a unanimous decision win this month over Javier Fortuna, an entertaining bout that put Diaz back in the spotlight. At 28 years old, Diaz could be the biggest challenge that young 22 year old Ryan Garcia has seen. Garcia who hasn’t fought since his TKO victory over Luke Campbell back in January has been battling things outside of the ring. Garcia has faced criticism for pulling out of his Summer bout due to his mental health but a Fall brawl with Jojo Diaz could make the people forget all about that. There is no pen to paper yet so I’ll keep you posted as more information about this potential scrap becomes available.
