Joseph Diaz Jr. fails to make weight for Jesus Rojas title fight

Featherweight contender Joseph "JoJo" Diaz Jr. failed to make weight Friday, costing himself the opportunity to win a world title.

Diaz will still face secondary featherweight titlist Jesus Rojas on Saturday (Facebook Watch, 9 p.m.

ET) at the Avalon Hollywood in Hollywood, California, in the main event of the first "Golden Boy Fight Night" card of the promotional company's deal for at least five shows that will air live on Facebook Watch.

Just a mess," Golden Boy Promotions president Eric Gomez told ESPN.

For failing to make weight, Diaz (26-1, 14 KOs), 25, of South El Monte, California, was fined 20 percent ($10,000) of his $50,000 purse by the California State Athletic Commission.
