Nick Diaz Will Focus on MMA Career
Despite much bluster and multiple rumored opponents, it seems that Strikeforce welterweight champion - Nick Diaz - will not be returning to the boxing ring anytime soon.
Following rumors of upcoming boxing bouts and opponents, Strikeforce welterweight champion – Nick Diaz – appears to be not returning to boxing any time soon. His boxing promoter, Don Chargin, issued a press release yesterday, noting that the MMA fighter is intent of focusing on his current combat sports profession.
“Right now, he has an opportunity of a lifetime as it pertains to his MMA career. While I don’t doubt that Nick and his team were serious about taking the big step into boxing, it only makes sense for him to finish what he started and see how far he can go in MMA before he does anything in boxing.”
Nick Diaz’s trainer and manager, Cesar Gracie, also added that recent rumors about boxing matches versus Jeff Lacy and Fernando Vargas are just mere promotional stunts. And while many fight fans believe that the Strikeforce champ can fight against Georges St-Pierre, UFC President – Dana White – stated that there are still a lot of hurdles to deal with before the title unification bout takes place. Dana White reportedly met with Nick Diaz in Las Vegas last week, sparking the welterweight superfight speculations even more.View Article Source »
