Juan Diaz-Pipino Cuevas on Fox Deportes and FUEL TV

HOUSTON, TEXAS – Baby Bull Sports & Entertainment is proud to announce that on Saturday, April 13 at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas’ beloved “Baby Bull,” former World Champion Juan Diaz, returns to the ring for the first time since 2010 to face Pipino Cuevas Jr. on FOX Sports Networks, FOX Deportes and FUEL TV.

A popular figure in his native Texas and around the globe, Houston’s Juan Diaz (35-4, 17 KO’s) made legions of fans not only for his all-action fighting style in the ring, but also for his class outside the ring, where he insisted on getting his college degree while still competing in the world’s toughest sport.

A former Unified Lightweight World Champion who held title belts for nearly four years, defeating Acelino Freitas, Michael Katsidis, Julio Diaz and Jose Miguel Cotto along the way, Diaz also went to battle with future Hall of Famer Juan Manuel “Dinamita” Marquez. Diaz retired from the game in 2010 following his rematch with Marquez in order to focus on his education and entrepreneurial endeavors. Now ready to make another run at a world title, the 29-year-old can’t wait to hear the bell ring once again.

Pipino Cuevas Jr. (16-9, 14 KO’s) is the son of the longtime WBA Welterweight
World Champion and while he hasn’t been able to add a world title to the family’s trophy case yet, the 33-year-old from Mexico City has definitely inherited his father’s power, as evidenced by his 88% knockout percentage. The winner of two of his last three, Cuevas will look to make Diaz regret his decision to return to the ring on April 13.
