As previously speculated the bout will take place on July 28th in Florida, USA, with the two men battlign for the belt vacated by Vasyl Lomachenko.
The bout will put the top 2 ranked WBO Super Featherweights against each other, with both men competing in their first world title bout, as they both look to prove that they are world class.
The unbeaten Diaz, from Purerto Rico, made his debut in 2013 and began to step up the quality of his opponents in 2016, when he scored wins over Ray Ximenez and Raul Hirales. Since then he continued to develop his skills and built his reputation with wins over Efrain Esquivas, Bryant Cruz and Braulio Rodriguez. As for Ito he has been a professional since 2009. In 2012 he claimed the Japanese Rookie of the Year crown, before winning the OPBF Super Featherweight title in 2016, and then unifying it with the WBO Asia Pacific title later that same year. Although not well known outside of Japan Ito holds notable wins on the domestic and regional scene against the likes of Takuya Watanabe, Shingo Eto, Kosuke Saka, Taiki Minamoto and Masao Nakamura.
On paper this is a mouth watering bout we are are certainly looking forward to such a fantastic bout to finish off the month of July.
