Total focus. The undefeated Puerto Rican contender Christopher "Pitufo" Diaz has only one goal in mind: to become world champion.
During a press conference held on Thursday afternoon at 'Isla del Encanto', Díaz said that on July 28 he will leave the Kissimmee Civic Center as a world champion. Former world champion Jose Pedraza was also present at the press conference.
Diaz wants to add his name to the storied list of Puerto Rican world champions, when he squares off against Masayuki Ito for the vacant World Boxing Organization (WBO) junior lightweight title.
And, in the 10-round co-feature, undefeated welterweight prospect Carlos “Caballo Bronco” Adames will face Artemio Reyes of San Bernardino, Calif.
Diaz-Ito and Adames-Reyes will stream live and exclusively in the United States at 9:30 ET on ESPN+ — the recently-launched multi-sport, direct-to-consumer subscription streaming service from The Walt Disney Company's Direct-to-Consumer & International segment in conjunction with ESPN. Undercard bouts will stream live on ESPN+ beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET. ESPN+ is available to all fans on the ESPN App and ESPN.com.
