Juan Diaz (boxer)
GOODYEAR, AZ - FEBRUARY 19: Juan Diaz #66 of the Cleveland Indians poses during MLB photo day at the Goodyear Ballpark on February 19, 2013 in Goodyear, Arizona.
I’m not going to lie. Pipino Cuevas is not the toughest opponent in the division ... But I’ve also been off for two and a half years. Fighting guys like Juan Manuel Marquez, Acelino Freitas, all those guys, they’re not just steppingstones. I needed a tuneup fight like Pipino Cuevas to see where I was at and judge myself to where I’m at right now.
I needed to get that fight out of the way. I definitely felt that ring rust that many fighters talk about ... Early on in the first round, I felt a little awkward. I was falling in with my punches. But as the rounds progressed, I started to get a little more comfortable in there and started to use my jab a little bit more and get focused.
