The strength is already there, we worked on that and it’s where we want it to be. Now we have added the speed.On Juan Diaz:“Diaz is a fighter that throws many punches.

Margarito lost. Arce lost. Now my fight is coming up and let me tell you I will put all my heart, blood, and soul on the line to get the victory for the Mexicans so we can end the bad streak we are having.”
Does anybody actually read a whole post nowdays?

Can anybody highlight where JMM is actually dissing Juan Diaz?

JMM is actually giving Diaz his props, by pointing out his strenghths.

People born in Mexico will root for JMM.....Americans born to Mexican parents (who would consider themselves Texans) will root for Juan Diaz....makes absolute sense to me.
