Anyone know anything about him? He looks to have been brought along well, with wins against decent - and increasingly better - opposition. He's now 21-0 and hasn't fought anyone with more losses than wins since his 6th bout. Plus he outpointed Don George in his last bout so it looks like he has a decent set of whiskers on him.

Any one seen him or have any background on him?

i've been to almost all of his local fights. he started off his career as a brawler, but has slowly turned into more of a boxer / puncher. he's not a terrific boxer. he's got decent power and a decent jab. he's got long arms and a strong upper body, so it is in his best interest generally to box on the outside.

ronnie shields has been training him for his last few fights, and slowly he's begun to turn away from what once once a very exciting style. he used to go all out and bomb guys out of there with body punches. shields knows what he's doing, though. rodriguez' only chance for success is to move away from the brawling style. he's not going to simply blows the doors off of the guys in the top 10.

i dont know anything about his next opponent, but his record looks to be that of a puncher. perhaps i've seen him off of the bigger networks and he's slipped my memory, but i do think he's unfamiliar to me.
