Gethin to face Diaz in final eliminator for IBF lightweight title

By James Slater

British lightweight contender Martin Gethin will face Panama’s Ammeth Diaz on May 31st in Walsall UK in a final eliminator for Miguel Vazquez’ IBF 135 pound title. 29 year old Gethin, 24-3-1 (11) is full of praise for promoter Frank Warren for getting him this big fight. Diaz, 31-11(22) will be facing Vazquez for a second time if he beats Gethin, having lost a 12-rd UD to the Mexican in January of last year. Vazquez had been set to face Scotland’s Ricky Burns, only for that fight to fall through. Can Gethin add his name to the current list of British world champs?
