GBP Matchmaker Robert Diaz Talks To TBC – Golden Boy Promotions matchmaker Robert Diaz is in upstate NY this week for the big fight show at the Turning Stone Casino. Our roving cameraman Marcelino Castillo caught up with Diaz to talk our favorite subject…. boxing!
It seems that yearly GBP is in the running for “Promoter of the Year” and 2017 is no different as the group has put on several of the biggest fights of the year. As matchmaker, Diaz had his hand in making the recent Saul “Canelo” Alvarez versus Gennady Golovkin pay-per-view fight on HBO but he also works on the company’s developmental shows such as the L.A. Fight Club series at the Belasco Theater.
Saturday’s HBO card is somewhere in between as the main event sees WBA world super featherweight champion Jezreel Corrales (22-1) face the challenge of unbeaten Alberto Machado (18-0).
