The heat was turned up a notch at Golden Boy Headquarters as undefeated welterweight "Relentless" Antonio Orozco (24-0, 16 KOs) and undefeated NABF Featherweight Champion Joseph "Jojo" Diaz, Jr. (20-0, 11 KOs) announced their upcoming televised fights on HBO Latino on July 30
JOSEPH "JOJO" DIAZ. Jr. NABF Featherweight Title Contender:
"Thank you to Golden Boy Promotions and HBO for this opportunity to showcase my talents.
"I'm excited to give everyone a great performance. I've been training very hard, and I want to showcase that I am at the same level as all the champions in the featherweight division. Hopefully, I can go for a world title soon."
FRANK ESPINOZA, Manager to "Relentless" Antonio Orozco:
"Muhammad Ali once said, 'Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them - a desire, a dream, and a vision.'
"On July 30, we will witness such a fighter who has a desire, a dream, and a vision. I'd like to say Antonio Orozco has the X factor, and it's no wonder he's ranked number one by the WBC. He's unstoppable and we're happy to be a part of this event. We will put on a fight we won't forget."
"RELENTLESS" ANTONIO OROZCO, Super Lightweight Contender:
"I want to thank God for providing these opportunities. It's a blessing to have the team I have around me. These are the moments that as a professional you look forward to. We've paid our dues and put in the hard work. This wouldn't be possible without a team--even though as a fighter, you are alone in the ring, you don't get ready without a team."
"My opponent is a tremendous fighter from what I've seen, who can pull off an upset and has won against undefeated fighters before. We are putting together our relentless style of boxing and July 30 will be no exception. No one will be bored watching this fight.
