"Going on sale this Saturday, these tickets make a great last minute gift or stocking stuffer for boxing fans."

"For 'Comanche Boy' a fight against Rodriguez represents a terrific opportunity. This will be the first time he has fought on the East Coast and his first main event on ESPN so this is a chance for him to truly impress. He's an undefeated Native American-Indian and a very colorful and aggressive fighter."

A native of nearby Danbury, CT, the Dominican born Rodriguez, 26-6-3 (14KO's), is among the most popular fighters on the East Coast having continuously drawn huge crowds to his all-action fights. In July 2011 on ESPN Friday Night Fights, perennial contender Rodriguez fought to a draw with Pawel Wolak in a legendary battle that was voted "2011 Fight of the Year," returning in December 2011 to beautifully outbox Wolak towards a dominant victory at Madison Square Garden.

In June of this year, Rodriguez challenged WBA Junior Middleweight Champion Austin Trout, losing a hard fought decision in a nationally televised bout.

Fighting out of Lawton, Oklahoma and a proud member of the Comanche Nation, Tahdooahnippah sports a record of 31-0-1 with 23 knockouts and is coming off a third round stoppage of Gundrick King on SEPTEMBER 28 in his hometown winning the NABA USA Middleweight Title.

The Rodriguez/Tahdooahnippah bout will be contested at a catch weight of 157 pounds. An exciting undercard will be announced shortly.
