Gamaliel Diaz To Make First Title Defense in Japan

By Miguel Rivera

Mexico's Gamaliel "Platano" Diaz has confirmed that his first defense of the World Boxing Council (WBC) super featherweight title will take place on a March date in Japan. Diaz pulled off one of the biggest upsets of 2012 with a huge victory on October 27 to dethrone Takahiro Aoh of the WBC crown.

The victory gave Japanese promoter Teiken two future options on Diaz (37-9-2, 17KOs). On Monday, Mexican promoter Fausto Daniel Garcia and Teiken will have a conference call to finalize Diaz's opponent. There are two Japanese opponents being considered.
