 OSCAR DIAZ 1982-2015
By Christian Schmidt

Texas welterweight gave boxing everything he had to give

Sad news to report out of San Antonio as we inform you that former welterweight contender Oscar Diaz passed away this week.  Diaz had a professional career that spanned eight years. He racked up an impressive record of 26-3 with 12 KOs. Diaz was discovered in his amateur days by boxing Hall of Fame trainer Lou Duva.  Duva often spent time watching Diaz train in San Antonio and also spent time with his cutman, the late Joe Souza. Diaz had several fights that landed on national television, including notable victories over Al "Speedy" Gonzales, Chris "The Mechanic" Smith, and Jesse Feliciano. During that run, he won multiple regional titles. Sadly for Diaz, he will most be remembered for his final bout, which was against Delvin Rodriguez. The fight took place on July 16th, 2008 at the Municipal Auditorium in San Antonio and was broadcast on ESPN2.

 ODLANIER SOLIS BUYS ONE-WAY TICKET TO PALOOKAVILLE

Tony Thompson TKO9 Odlanier Solis... In Turkey, former Cuban amateur star Odlanier Solis flushed his heavyweight career down the toilet by showing up grossly overweight for his rematch with America's Tony Thompson, and then quitting in the ninth round. Solis was getting punched around by a tired but determined Thompson and then refused to fight when the ninth round started. Solis' promoter, Ahmet Ohner, who was also working Solis' corner, berated Solis, but the Cuban refused to fight on. The 43 year-old Thompson improved to 40-5 and strengthened his credentials not only as a legitimate top 20 heavyweight but as a bona fide spoiler. Solis, a 2004 Olympic gold medalist, is now 20-3, including two straight losses to Thompson. Solis' only road back is to serve as a gatekeeper and knock off a couple of top prospects. source: youtube video

In 2009, Arreola unsuccessfully challenged Vitali Klitschko for the WBC heavyweight world title. After dropping a tough decision to Tomasz Adamek in 2010, Arreola pushed his way back with six-straight victories before he got a chance against Bermane Stiverne in 2013. In their first fight, Arreola lost a unanimous decision but earned himself another fight against Stiverne, this time for the heavyweight world championship. In an action-packed fight, Arreola was stopped in the sixth-round. Arreola is now 33.

 DAILY BREAD FRIDAY EDITION: (2-27-15)
By Stephen "Breadman" Edwards

Mayweather-Pacquiao, Golovkin & more......

It's been a long time since I wrote to you, but with 2015 shaping up, boxing back on network television, the super fight finally happening, I had to write down some thoughts. First Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao.  All the true boxing fans know why one of the biggest reasons this fight is finally happening is because Floyd feels Pacquiao is not same animal as before. It's true Pac is not that same guy from 2009-11. His body has changed, he's thinking more, but this new version of Pac is still a tough out. There's no way I'm counting Mayweather out but Pac is all wrong for Floyd, but we'll see. I believe we will get a really good fight and it's because I recently watched the Floyd's fight against Demarcus Corley. People forget but Demarcus gave Floyd a way tougher fight than Zab Judah did.
