Jared Shaw: "Yes or no, will you fight Nick Diaz?"

Jared Shaw talks more about the situation with KJ Noons.

Kimbo Slice update...

I would expect a Kimbo Slice opponent to be announced early this week.

On the situation with KJ Noons...

"There is no opportunity for CBS now and being seen by millions of eyeballs. KJ Noons can look directly at Mark Dion and ask him why or he can just come out and say he doesn’t want to fight him. I still believe he would fight him, but it’s just a terrible mismanagement situation."

"I’m led to believe from the conversations with Mark Dion that this is a management situation and not a fighter that’s scared. Look, KJ Noons is a world champion. He’s taken on Yves Edwards, Nick Diaz, Edson Berto and Charles “Krazy Horse” Bennett so he hasn’t rejected a fight up until this situation. We’ve been trying to make this Nick Diaz fight happen since about March."

"I’m frustrated by the opportunity this kid is blowing. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. This is only the 3rd show on CBS. There’s millions of fighters that never had this opportunity and will never have this opportunity."

"He had the opportunity to be on a card that had Kimbo Slice and Gina Carano on. You’ve already seen what those 2 are capable of on May 31st. Throw yourself and Nick Diaz in the mix and you could only make it a bigger event."

"Yes or no, will you fight Nick Diaz? Do you want to defend your belt against a #1 contender? What ever your gripes are about boxing, money, who you do or you don’t like with Pro Elite and EliteXC, let’s focus on the situation here. You signed a contract. When you signed the contract, you knew what you were getting in your 3rd or 4th fight. You already knew and now it’s time to fight again and not only is it time to fight again, you’re given a golden opportunity."

Nick Diaz's return...

"Nick Diaz will be back in November on Showtime for an Elite show."
