Diakiese had clashed with Paul Felder on Twitter and offered the American a fight but that will have to wait until he gets Klose.
The 29-year-old Michigan battler is also unbeaten but his last three wins have gone to the judges whereas Diakiese is wiping people out for fun.
Diakiese collected a £40,000 performance-of-the-night bonus for his rapid demolition of Packalen and he will be hunting down another for his worthy cause.
The lightweight star is saving up his bonuses to buy a house for his young family and another sensational stoppage will take him another step closer to his dream home.
