The fight will go on but only one of the principals will be vying for a title Saturday in Indio, Calif., on DAZN.
Joseph Diaz Jr. was set to make the first defense of his 130-pound title but weighed in 3.6 pounds over the limit on Friday, thus losing his belt on the scale. His on-weight opponent, Shavkatdzhon Rakhimov, will become champion with a victory.
Diaz (31-1, 15 KOs) won the IBF title in January of last year, when he outpointed Tevin Farmer. Rakhimov will be fighting for a major title for the first time.
Also on the card, Patrick Teixeira (31-1, 22 KOs) will defend his WBO 154-pound title against Brian Castano (16-0-1, 12 KOs). Ronny Rios (32-3, 16 KOs) will face Oscar Negrete (19-2-2, 7 KOs) in a 10-round junior featherweight fight.
Shane Mosley Jr. (16-3, 9 KOs) takes on Cristian Olivas (19-7, 16 KOs) in a 10-round super middleweight bout. And, in the DAZN opener, hot light heavyweight prospect Bektemir Melikuziev (6-0, 5 KOs) and Morgan Fitch (19-4-1, 8 KOs) will fight in an eight-rounder.
