This Wednesday, Joseph Díaz, father of the World Boxing Council interim lightweight champion, Joseph “JoJo” Díaz Jr., received recognition as a trainer from the WBC.
The World Boxing Council recognizes with this belt the great work and dedication that the coaches carry out in forging the career of champions.
This trainer belt is one of a kind, inspired by the traditional towel worn at all times by these men who behind the lights of the reflectors print all their passion and dedication on their pupils.
Last July, “Jojo” won the WBC interim lightweight title, defeating tough Dominican Javier Fortuna (36-3-1, 25 KOs) at the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles.
The fight was intense and aggressive, but Diaz was rewarded for his efforts with scores of 117-110, 116-111 and 115-112.
