Joseph Diaz, Diego De La Hoya, Ramirez Back on 11/13

By Francisco Salazar

Looks like unbeaten Joseph Diaz Jr. will return to the ring in about one month's time.

Diaz says he will fight on November 13 at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif. Diaz made the announcement on his Twitter handle on Friday night.

Diaz will likely headline a three-bout "Golden Boy Live" telecast that will air on Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports Deportes.

Two other unbeaten fighters will also fight on the Golden Boy Promotions card. Manager Joel De La Hoya confirmed to over the weekend Julian Ramirez and Diego De La Hoya will fight in separate bouts.

Diaz (12-0, 8 KOs) stopped Raul Hidalgo in the seventh round of his last fight on September 29 in Hidlago, Tex. The 2012 United States Olympian resides in the Los Angeles suburb of South El Monte.

Like Diaz, Ramirez (12-0, 7 KOs) also fought about two weeks ago. On September 27 in Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexico, Ramirez stopped Ricardo Hernandez in the sixth round.

Ramirez resides in the Los Angeles area.

De La Hoya (7-0, 5 KOs) is coming off a one-sided six round unanimous decision over Luis Ruiz Lizarraga on Friday night. The 20 year old is the younger cousin of Oscar De La Hoya.

The opponents of the three fighters, the non-televised undercard, and ticket information will be announced at a later date.
