Rubén Díaz, a new European challenge at 41 years old

The RAE defines ‘waiting’ as “hoping to get what you want.” That definition has made it good Rubén Díaz (26-2-2, 17 KO). The ‘Destroyer’ has been waiting since October 2019 to play the European Middleweight Championship. It has been 25 months, with three postponements and patience. “You don’t need to motivate him, he motivates himself. He is aiming to take that belt and is convinced“, points out in the podcast ‘Boxeo a la Carrera’ Jesús Antonio Labrador ‘Xule’, his coach for this lawsuit.” From my European against Szeremeta (September 2018) I realized that I had to do a specific camp, that’s why I spoke with Xule. I knew him for a long time and we had to prepare together for this fight yes or yes “, reveals the Gallego Prada fighter before finally playing this fight this Friday (DAZN, 19:00).

Díaz has already made three preparations to face Matteo Signani (30-5-3, 11 KO), continental champion of the division. The postponements and the pandemic mean that the Spaniard has not boxed since June 2019. “The wait has become eternal. I’m fine, but I don’t give it much thought. The circumstances are what they are. I do not give it more laps. I will put up a good fight and win“, says the Gallego Prada boxer confidently.

With so much waiting time, the Navarrese team has studied Signani more than enough. “He has a lot of work, he’s tough and knows how to mess up fights. I don’t see great virtues in him, but I do see a lot of work and he knows how to compete. That is the most complicated“says Xule. Díaz is clear about how he is going to come out and what they expect from the fight in his corner.” I expect a long fight. I imagine it will come out to move and hold on. I hope I want a war. I think it will be longer, but it will not reach the end. Rubén’s punch will be key“, concludes the coach.
