Errol Spence Confirms Terrence Crawford Fight Next

Joseph “Jo Jo” Diaz’s big strides in the pro ranks this year have taken another positive turn.


Joseph “Jo Jo” Diaz Jr. (19-0, 11 KOs) retained his undefeated status and was crowned the new NABF featherweight champion after a stunning second round technical knockout of Mexico City, Mexico’s Hugo “Olimpico” Partida (20-7-2, 15 KOs) in front of nearly 1,500 fans at a jam-packed Fantasy Springs Resort Casino tonight, televised live on Boxeo Estelar on Estrella TV. 

Afterwards Diaz said:

“We came with a great game plan to land effective shots right away and to dig to the body and try to hurt him. I dug into the body in the first round and had him hurt. And then I put some good powerful shots on top and got him out. He connected with a good shot, but I didn’t feel anything at all. I just acknowledge him for getting a good shot in. I didn’t let it affect me at all.”

He concluded that next year will be another big year:

“I knew that I had to take care of business and get the win no matter what. I hope to get the top 10 guys in my division, fight on the bigger networks and get a title shot by the end of next year. I feel very strong at this weight, and I make the weight pretty good. I just feel like 126 is going to be my weight.”
