Russell (28-1, 17 knockouts) and Diaz (26-0, 14 KOs) agreed to the deal last week in a fight ordered by the WBC. Russell, THE RING’s No. 2 featherweight, is one of the sport’s most talented fighters. However, he’s also one of its most inactive. Since he was soundly defeated by Vasiliy Lomachenko in June 2014, Russell has competed just four times.
During that span, Diaz, a fellow U.S. Olympian, has competed on 16 occasions. He’s THE RING’s No. 7-rated fighter at 126 pounds.
Golden Boy, who promotes Diaz, works with HBO for all their major shows, but they’ve proven they’ll work with other promoters — and networks — to consummate the best matchups.
One week before the Showtime telecast dominated by Al Haymon-advised fighters airs, Golden Boy-promoted fighter Jorge Linares will defend his RING lightweight championship against Top Rank-promoted Vasiliy Lomachenko on ESPN.Subscribe Now
