Strikeforce Welterweight Nick Diaz Signs Boxing Deal

Nick DiazStrikeforce welterweight Nick Diaz, whose recent refusal to take a mandatory drug test forced him out of a welterweight title bout at Saturday’s “Carano vs. Cyborg” card, has signed a boxing deal with veteran promoter Don “War-a-Week” Chargin.

“After having seen the replays of Diaz’s fights over the course of his career, I truly believe that this kid has what it takes to really make for some very entertaining fights within boxing,” said Chargin in a release announcing the signing. “While some would state that he’s merely a slugger possessing a good chin and a heavy work-rate, there’s something about his rhythm and fighting intelligence that really caught my eye.”

Diaz’s next fight, either his boxing debut or MMA return, has not yet been announced.
