Former world world super featherweight champion Joseph Diaz Jr is set to make his return to the ring on October 29 live on DAZN, when he takes on the dangerous Mexican William "El Camaron'' Zepeda.

The fight will take place at the Pechanga Arena in San Diego and will be "JoJo's" first fight after losing to Devin Haney in an attempt to win the WBC lightweight championship.

Diaz Jr is now focused on returning to winning ways and has been trainning at the BXNG CLUB in San Diego since the loss to Haney, something which he feels will be of great benefit to his confidence. 

"It gives me goosebumps to be here in San Diego, knowing that I'm going to fight here soon in a couple of weeks. It's three weeks away and I'm ready and excited," Diaz Jr said during a media workout. 

"It's going to be a great night of fights. I know my opponent (William Zepeda) is going to give it his all. But I'm ready to execute and do what I do best.

"I'm 150% confident that my hand will be up when the bell rings. My training and preparation will see to that."

The undefeated Zepeda comes into this fight on the back of a 16-fight winning streak with 15 of those coming by way of knockout, and is now looking to make a name for himself in the United States and a win against Diaz Jr could be the statement he needs.
