Poli Díaz He has been working for a few months with the promoter Unlimited Global Challengers, initially as an advisor and coach of young talents, after a retirement in the Canary Islands, where he has tried to get away from his years of drug addiction that sank him to the bottom of society.
Recovered, he claims to feel in top shape and wants to feel the warmth of the public again. “I have been offered to do a match like Tyson’s, and if Tyson has, Why am I not going to do it? What happens, that the Americans are going to be more than us? We are also Spanish and we must also give the ball the ball. Cojones, but with head and train and be strong. I’m not going for four dollars. I’m going to get a title or whatever, “he promises.

“It would be with Pacquiao. That, at 2 o’clock in the night in summer, in the Plaza de Las Ventas. That I have thought. If he had caught me at my age … He who goes forward, I who also go forward … There would have been a clash between titans, “he says.
