Chuko Diaz Returns Saturday Night in Tijuana
Carlos "Chuko" Diaz (28-1-0, 13 ko's), is a natural boxing talent as this Saturday, he will return to the ring, when he faces the ever-dangerous Eleazar "Tronco" Valenzuela, in headlining Zanfer Promotions card at the Grand Hotel Tijuana that will be broadcast by Azteca 7, the Boxing House.
"Chuko" Diaz will end a 19-month inactivity, and make just his second fight in more than two years, in front of a post-mailous and dangerous kickback like the "Tronco" Valenzuela (26-10-2, 16 ko's) in 10-round contest by superlight weight.
Diaz hasn't fought since May 2019, when he beat Emmanuel Herrera by unanimous decision, and that was his only fight of 2019, with no activity in 2020. Prior to that, in November 2018, he defeated by unanimous decision the solid Tijuana prospect Jesús Antonio "Ricky" Pérez, and in June of that same year he suffered his first defeat by knockout to José "Chon" Zepeda, whom he sent to the canvas in the fourth round.
