Joel Diaz Jr. Tops Bayou City Events Center Card

By Peter Lim

Former amateur standout Joel Diaz Jr. of Palmdale, CA, headlines the latest Savarese Boxing Promotions fight night at the Bayou City Events Center in Houston on April 4. Diaz (11-0, 10 KOs) takes on Victor Sanchez (4-5, 1 KO) of Houston in a super featherweight bout. Diaz, 21, held an amateur record of 85-10 before turning pro in 2010. His most notable fight to date, on paper at least, was his sixth pro bout in which he stopped Guy Robb, who was 7-0 at that time, in the seventh round.

Converted kickboxer Chase Corley (2-0, 2 KOs) takes on Wilson Rodriguez (record unknown) in a middleweight bout. Corley, 28, spent much of the last five years in Thailand compiling a professional record of 16-12 in Muay Thai before transitioning to boxing last year.

Heavyweight Darlington Agha (6-0, 5 KOs) returns to the ring after a two-year layoff against Anthony Greeley (8-39-3, 1 KO). Welterweight Felipe Reyes (2-0, 1 KO) faces Wille Mille (record unknown). Danny Garcia (10-7-2, 7 KOs) takes on David Green (2-14-1, 1 KO) in a lightweight bout. Junior middleweight Jonathan Cashmere (1-0, 1 KO) fights Noe Sandoval (1-1). Bantamweight Noe Bravo (1-4, 1 KO) faces Joe Anthony Narro (0-4). And Edgar Alarcon (0-0-1) takes on Guadalupe Perez (2-12) in a featherweight bout.
