Nate Diaz vs Jorge Masvidal Boxing Match Rescheduled & Relocated

The boxing rematch between Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal has been rescheduled to July 6 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California to avoid clashing with UFC 302 and another major boxing match.

Alright, here’s the scoop. Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal? Their fight’s been rescheduled. Yeah, they’re dodging a clash with UFC 302 and a big boxing match happening the same day.

So, when’s the new date? It’s Saturday, July 6. And the place? The Honda Center in Anaheim, California. Got this info from multiple sources, confirmed by MMA Fighting. Boxing Scene was the first to spill the beans.

Originally, Diaz vs. Masvidal was set for June 1 at the Kia Forum in Inglewood, California. But, uh-oh, UFC 302 was happening the same day. Islam Makhachev defending his lightweight title against Dustin Poirier? Yep, that’s the main event. Plus, Dmitry Bivol’s boxing match with Malik Zinad. Bivol’s original opponent, Artur Beterbiev, had to step down due to a training injury.

So, what’s the plan? Simple. Avoid a face-off with two pay-per-views that would likely steal potential buyers from Diaz vs. Masvidal. The ex-UFC fighters decided to switch things up. New date, new location.

Diaz and Masvidal haven’t said anything official about the move. Or about ticket transfers to the new date and location.

Remember, Diaz and Masvidal first clashed almost five years ago in the UFC. Masvidal took home the “BMF” title with a third-round stoppage of Diaz. The reason? Cuts.

Now, they’re set to meet again. But it’s a boxing match this time. And they’ll have to wait an extra month before they can throw down in the ring.
