Weights From Indio, Calif: Diaz 125.6, Tamayo 125.6

By Jake Donovan

All fighters have made weight for Friday's installment of Golden Boy Promotions 'Boxeo Estelar' series live from Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California. 

Headlining the show, unbeaten featherweight Joseph 'JoJo' Diaz faces Ruben Tamayo. Both fighters weighed 125.6 lbs for the scheduled 10 round bout. 

Diaz (17-0, 10KOs) looks to pick up his fourth win of 2015. The unbeaten southoaw from Downey, Calif. - who served on the U.S. Olympic Boxing team in the 2012 London Olympics - is coming off of a 10 rounds win over featherweight gatekeeper Rene Alvarado in July. 

Tamayo (25-6-4, 17KOs) looks to turn around a two-fight skid. The veteran boxer from Mexico has fought just once in 2015, dropping a unanimous decision to Oscar Valdez this past June. 

Also on the card, unbeaten prospect Frankie 'Pitbull' Gomez faces Mexico's Jorge Silva in a scheduled 10-round affair just above the welterweight limit.

Gomez (18-0, 13KOs) tipped the scales at 150 lbs. as he ventures into a career in the welterweight division.  The undefeated 23-year old from East L.A. has been out of the ring all year, though his own fault after having missed weight by more than a full division for his scheduled crossroads bout with Humberto Soto in May.

It was the latest in a series of hiccups for the talented but troubled boxer, who hopes to end an otherwise forgettable 2015 on a high note.

Silva (21-9-2, 17KOs), also 23, is just 2-7-1 in his last 10 starts, but coming off of a confidence-rebuilding win in July.

The show will air live on Estrella TV, also streaming live on RingTVLive.com.
