MASHANTUCKET, Conn.  – Undefeated super featherweight prospect Joel Diaz Jr. and once-beaten Tyler Asselstine both measured at the 130-pound limit during Thursday’s official weigh-in for their 10-round main event showdown tomorrow/Friday, May 16 on ShoBox: The New Generation, live on SHOWTIME® at 10 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast).

Streaking junior middleweight prospect Frank Galarza weighed in at 153 pounds and fellow undefeated prospect Sebastien Bouchard tipped the scale at 154 pounds for their eight-round co-feature bout on ShoBox.  

Co-promoter and former world champion Jean Pascal presided over Thursday’s weigh-in at Fox Theatre at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Conn., the site of Friday’s ShoBox doubleheader.  The event  is promoted by DiBella Entertainment in association with Jean Pascal Promotions.  Galarza-Bouchard is also promoted in association with New Legend Boxing.

Eight of Diaz’s (15-0, 12 KOs) 12 career knockouts have come in two rounds or less, with six coming in the first round.  The Glendale, Calif., resident, who is guided by renowned trainer Abel Sanchez, is looking to make a move in the lightweight division but faces his toughest opponent to date in Asselstine (14-1, 7 KOs), a former Canadian amateur standout.

Brooklyn’s Galarza, who is returning to ShoBox for the second time in 2014, has knocked out four consecutive opponents, including a career-best KO of previously undefeated prospect John Thompson this past January on the series.  Bouchard, a former two-time Canadian amateur champion, is an up-and-coming boxer in his native Quebec.

These fights look like they could be competitive.

Hell yea. Diaz is finally fighting someone with a similar record as his . Not missing this one. Diaz might want to move up to lightweight soon, he looks like a skeleton in those pics.
