Juan Diaz: Brandon Rios, I'm Back and I'll School You

By Edward Chaykovsky

Former IBF/WBA/WBO lightweight champion Juan Diaz (35-4, 17KOs) is gunning for a title shot against WBA lightweight champion Brandon Rios (27-0, 20KOs). In a recent interview with, Diaz announced his return to boxing after being away since July 2010. Diaz lost two of his last three fights, with two of those defeats coming at the hands of Juan Manuel Marquez.

On his Twitter page, Diaz sent Rios a warning. Diaz is reportedly a free agent after his contract with Golden Boy Promotions expired, which makes the fight possible, although Golden Boy is trying to resign him.

"I am back and stronger then ever. Just letting you hold my title for now. I am going to school you, and shut you up!"

This sounds like a war of a fight to me. Don't see nothing wrong with it. I know Diaz has been losing but i also know he brings a good fight..
