Next fight of Joel Diaz Jr is not determined yet.
Turning Stone Resort & Casino hosted an eight bout card during the IBHOF weekend Friday night. The main event of ten rounds proved to be anti-climactic as super lightweight Regis Progais of Houston, TX overpowered Joel Diaz, Jr of Palmdale, CA. The southpaw Progais hammered Diaz with left hands in round one that shook Diaz on more than one occasion. Ten seconds into round two a straight right hand dropped Diaz that may have been a slip. Progais jumped on his opponent and landed left hand after left hand dropping Diaz three more times in the round. The last knockdown caused referee Mark Nelson to stop the one sided contest at 2:55. Progais called out Broner and Crawford claiming to be the bully of the division. He certainly bullied Diaz to improve to 20-0 with 17 KOs as Diaz loses his zero and drops to 23-1.
