Christian R. Coria TKO3 Joel Diaz Jr: Christian Rafael Coria, a 36 year-old from Argentina, upset Clifornia's Joel Diaz Jr., stopping the junior welterweight in the third round on Top Rank's show in Fresno, California. Diaz came out fast, but began to get tagged with Coria's right hand in the final minute of the opening round. Diaz fought as though he would lose a point if he moved his head and found himself on the deck twice before the fight was stopped at the 1:50 mark of round three. Coria is now 29-7-2, while Diaz falls to 24-2. source: espn
