D-Day For Diaz?

Local hero David Diaz makes his return to the Chicago boxing scene when he takes on Jesus Chavez in the "Windy City Fight Night 6" at the UIC Pavilion this Saturday. For Diaz, the bout is a chance to get back into the title scene after his classic bout (and unfortunate loss) against Manny Pacquiao some 14 months ago. If this weekend's bout is anything like that one (highlights below), it won't be easy for either fighter.
