Joseph Diaz Banks One-Sided Decision Over Charles Huerta

by Francisco Salazar

INDIO - Joseph 'JoJo' Diaz broke down Charles Huerta through 10 one-sided rounds to win by unanimous decision.

The fight was a crossroads bout between Diaz and Huerta, two Southern California-based fighters who live about 15 apart from each other. Saturday night turned into a showcase for Diaz, who looked very sharp throughout the fight.

It was an easier-than-expected win by Diaz, who figured to get a challenge from Huerta, who could not mount any offense or land anything significant to gain Diaz's respect.

Diaz, the former featherweight contender, was sharp from the opening bell, landing a mix of combinations to the head and body of Huerta.

Diaz momentarily stunned Huerta near the end of round five, landing a series of hooks and crosses to the Huerta's head.

The pace of the fight slowed during the second round, but Diaz mounted an offense in round 10, putting Huerta on the defensive until the final bell sounded.

All three judges scored the bout 99-91 for Diaz, who improves to 28-1, 14 KOs. Saturday marked the first fight for Diaz at 130 pounds.

Huerta drops to 20-6, 12 KOs.

Tank Davis should have fought Diaz rather than some 122 pound dude
