Joel Diaz Jr. & Frank Galarza Remain Undefeated Friday on ShoBox: The New Generation

MASHANTUCKET, Conn.

Diaz (16-0, 12 KOs) controlled the tempo of the fight and pocketed rounds in the beginning, landing and throwing more power shots. But the rugged and previously once-beaten Asselstine (14-2, 7 KOs) pushed Diaz past the seventh for the first time of his career and turned up the heat in the latter rounds.
