In front of a large crowd of traders and boxing fans at the Chicago Board of Options Exchange, former world champions David Diaz and Jesus Chavez rang the opening bell on Tuesday morning to start off the trading day.
After opening the trading day, Diaz and Chavez were swarmed by hundreds of traders and CBOE employees as they walked the trading floor for over 90 minutes where they posed for pictures and signed autographs.
