BOXING

American featherweight (up to 59 kg) Joseph Diaz (31-1-0, 15 KO), who failed the weigh-in today in California and lost the IBF title, will lose 20% of his fee.

According to information provided by the State Athletic Commission, Diaz, who was scheduled to 500 thousand dollars, will lose a hundred, half of which will go to the commission, and half – to his rival and obligatory challenger, Russian Shavkat Rakhimov (15-0-0, 12 KO).

Let us remind you that Diaz exceeded the established limit of 130 pounds by three pounds and was not allowed to the second attempt due to too large an advantage.
