Edwin Rodriguez Outboxes Donovan George Over Ten

Madison Square Garden, New York - In a battle of super middleweight contenders, Edwin Rodriguez (21-0, 14KOs) won a ten round unanimous decision over Donovan George (22-2-1, 19KOs). The scores were 96-94, 99-91 and 99-93.

Rodriguez started moving and kept George at the end of his jab. George started closing the distance in the third, but not enough to change tempo. Rodriguez stayed on point with his boxing, although George would have brief moments of success. Rodriguez continued to control the action with his boxing. George tried to go for broke in the tenth and final round, but he couldn't change the outcome as Rodriguez used movement and defense to stay out of harm's way.

Much much better in comparison to how he's looked in the past, before he was no different from Maidana. He showed better skills here, needs to go to the body a little more, good performance nonetheless. Hopefully I don't see…
