HOUSTON - Inside the ring, Juan Diaz is poised and polished. Just 21, he owns the WBA lightweight title, boxing's youngest reigning world champion. But at his parent's tidy brick home in Houston, Diaz remains a college student with a 10 p.m. curfew on school nights.
"He's a big baby," teases younger brother Jose. "Mom still has to take care of him like a child."
At 5-foot-6 and 135 pounds, Diaz looks a bit like a schoolboy. He has a short haircut, peach fuzz that someday may form a full goatee and no tattoos or jewelry.
