Sammy Vasquez Jr. vs. Felix Diaz - CompuBox Historical Review

Sammy Vasquez landed nearly half his power punches in his last 4 fights and outlanded opponents 2-1 in total punches. Opponents landed just 23.2 % of their power punches- 14.5% lower than wgt. class avg. Felix Diaz will have to get past Vasquez's jab (5.5 landed in last 4 fights) to be effective, as 14.6 of his 16.8 landed punches per round (87%) were power shots.
