Former IBF featherweight champion Billy “The Kid” Dib (36-3, 21 KOs) returns to ring action on July 2nd against Mexico’s Alberto “Kichis” Garza (26-7-1, 21 KOs) over ten rounds at Foxwoods Resort, Mashantucket, Connecticut. Dib is coming off a nine round stoppage loss to current IBF 126 pound champion Evgeny Gradovich in 2013. Dib captured the IBF title by outscoring Jorge Lacierva in 2011 and defended the title successfully against Alberto Servidei and Eduardo Escobedo in 2012. Garza is coming off a twelve round decision loss to Jose Pedraza in March 2014 for the IBO 130 pound title. Also in 2014 he scored a KO in seven rounds over Eduardo Rios and in 2014 lost to WBA champion Nicholas Walters in four rounds.
