Thompson Boxing Signs Julio “The Kidd” Diaz

By Boxing Press February 19th, 2010 All Press Releases

With two world titles on his resume and the respect of the boxing world a given, Julio Diaz has already secured his place in the history books. But at 30 years old, "The Kidd" has plenty of fight left in him, and with a third world championship in his sights, he has signed with Thompson Boxing Promotions to help lead him there.

"Julio Diaz has always been one of my favorite fighters to watch, and we're honored to now have him on the team," said Ken Thompson, founder and president of Thompson Boxing Promotions. "He's got it all in the ring, and he's more determined than ever to get another world championship, so it's going to be a fun ride back to the top."

"I've been watching what Thompson Boxing has done with fighters like Tim Bradley and Yonnhy Perez, and I want to become the team's next world champion," said Diaz. "I feel better than ever at 140 pounds, and the fans are going to see a new and improved Julio Diaz in 2010."

A two-time lightweight champion, Julio Diaz (36-6, 26 KOs) is an 11-year veteran of the sweet science who has been in the ring with the best in the world over that time, including Angel Manfredy, Courtney Burton, Jose Luis Castillo, Javier Jauregui, Ricky Quiles, Jesus Chavez, and Juan Diaz.

Trained by his brother Joel, Coachella Valley's Diaz entered the junior welterweight ranks in 2009, and waged a hard-fought battle with unbeaten Victor Manuel Cayo last July. Now fully rested and ready to take on the 140-pound elite, Diaz is expecting a big year.
