Current Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz has agreed to face former IBF super-middleweight champion Jeff Lacy in a boxing match sometime later this fall.
Both fighters have been going back-and-forth, giving opinions on what they think of each sport and what they are capable of doing in the other one.
Since 2006, Lacy has gone 4-4 in boxing while Diaz has gone 14-3, including a 10-fight win streak he is currently on.
The proposed bout has caused a lot of interest among fight fans, and it's about as intriguing as when James Toney stepped into the cage to take on Hall-of-Famer Randy "The Natural" Couture at UFC 118. It's also a much more dangerous fight for Diaz than it was for Toney.
