Two days ago BoxingScene.com reported that a fight between former WBA/IBF/WBO lightweight champion Juan Diaz and WBO #1 rated contender Ray Beltran was nearly finalized for June 28th. Diaz had told BoxingScene.com that he had already agreed to the fight that was going to serve as the co-feature to the title tilt between WBO lightweight champion Terence Crawford and Yuriorkis Gamboa.  The winner of the Diaz-Beltran bout would likely have faced the winner of the main event in their next fight.

Diaz reached out to BoxingScene.com and said that while he agreed to the fight, Beltran decided to pass on the fight.

"I just got the call.  Beltran turned the fight down so the fight is off," Diaz told BoxingScene.com.

Beltran last fought on the Manny Pacquiao-Tim Bradley undercard on April 12th and multiple sources have advised BoxingScene.com that Beltran turned the fight down due to the quick turnaround, saying that he wouldn't be ready in time.

It is not known at this time if Diaz will still appear on the card.

[QUOTE=Tϊpac Amaru III]Well I won't feel bad for Beltran if he never gets a big fight again. For fighters like Beltran, when the opportunity comes you take it, you don't get to decide when you want the opportunity. :lame:[/QUOTE If I had advisors telling me to take that fight I would fire them...

[QUOTE=Hougigo]As for Ray Beltran, it***39;s not Top Rank he has a problem with, he has a new adviser who declined the fight for whatever reason...

I haven't seen Diaz's latest fights, so I'm just imagining a diminished version of him vs Beltran...seems like a competitive fight..you already know who's getting the nod in that case

Revolt at Casa De Arum. Seems like all his fighters are going rouge.
