A last-minute change in the boxing match between Agusto "Venenoso" Games and Antonio "Toño" Diaz has resulted in Games being dropped from the fight card and replaced by a Costa Rican for the "Fists of Fury" boxing event set to start at 11 this morning at the PAL Ryerson Youth Center in El Centro, 1100 N. 4th St.
Diaz (33-3, 22 KOs) of Coachella will defend his IBA Intercontinental Junior Welterweight Championship belt against Gilbert "Animal" Quiros (13-3, 11 KOs) after the change that was made Wednesday.
Organizers could not say why Games was dropped but did say during a press conference Friday that "Quiros and Diaz will engage in a long and exciting match."
Both Quiros and Diaz were present at the press conference at the Ramada Inn in El Centro.
The fighters did not exchange words but spoke to members of the press.
"I'm ready and anxious to get in the ring," said Diaz whose last fight was in November.
