By Rafael Soto

A site has finally been secured. IBF lightweight champion Miguel Vazquez will return to his native Guadalajara to face mandatory challenger Ameth Diaz of Panama on the 21st of January at the Coliseo Olímpico de la U de G. Vazquez (29-3-0, 13 KOs) defends his title for the third time against a tough Diaz (30-10-0, 21 KOs), and the fight will be broadcast by TV Azteca. Diaz, meanwhile, has been Panama's national champion, and held several regional belts. In his most recent bout, last August, he knocked out Lenny Z in the fifth round of a final eliminator.
