The Diaz trifecta! Diaz vs Diaz in Diaz hometown!

On October 13, at a venue in Chicago, IL, the Lightweight Unification title match between WBA/WBO Champion Juan Diaz and IBF Champion Julio Diaz is set to take place. The fight will be televised on HBO Boxing After Dark. How coincidental that this championship fight is taking place in the hometown of WBC Lightweight beltholder David Diaz. Let's not kid ourselves here, though. This fight is being fought for three of the major sanctioning body titles, but the real Lightweight Champion of World is Joel Casamayor. Let's hope Casamayor gets a shot at the winner of this bout. The winner of Juan and Julio will no doubt be the heir apparent to the Lightweight throne.
