Roberto Diaz predicts landscape of boxing for the next year on Twitter

The former matchmaker for Golden Boy Promotions, Roberto Diaz, who now serves as an advisor to several fighters, one of which being Jason Quigley, who lost to Edgar Berlanga last weekend, made a post outlining the future of boxing, via his popular Twitter account. 

On Wednesday, June 28th, Diaz took to Twitter to make some proclamations the first of which being ten future world champions in the next year. Diaz said the following via a Twitter post.

As you can tell, a slew of the fighters originates from Golden Boy Promotions fighters, who Diaz used to work with including, Roach, Ortiz, Zepeda, Rocha, and Ryan Garcia.

This was followed by a post talking about the fighters who will unify the division in the next 12 months. 


Will unify in next 12 months 

1) Marlen Esparza 

2) Inoue 

3) Yokasta Valle

4) Bam Rodriguez 

5) Usyk 

6) Bivol

7) Collazo

8) Spence.”

A surprise to some might be Yokasta Valle as she fights in the same division as all-time great, Seniesa Estrada - so we could see two methods of thinking, one being that she would beat Estrada or two) Estrada would leave the division. Another interesting prognostication is the belief Oleksandr Usyk will hold all four world titles, seemingly implying that he would beat Tyson Fury and that Dmitry Bivol would be unified, which would allude to favoring Bivol over Beterbiev. The most interesting of all was in the inclusion of Errol Spence Jr., who is fighting Terence Crawford on July 29th - it appears Diaz favors Spence in that fight. 

Why Diaz has become a beloved figure in the sport of boxing is his passion for the sport. Diaz during his tenure as matchmaker at Golden Boy Promotions was one of the most accessible executives in the sport of boxing. Often interacting with fans online or in person. This post which went viral on boxing Twitter sums up the status of Diaz in the sport - as someone with a deep knowledge of the boxing business, but has not lost his love for the sport as people do overtime when deeply involved.
