Jermell Charlo-Jose Angel Rodriguez, 10/14 on FS1

SUNRISE, FLORIDA - Golden Boy Promotions returns to the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida on Monday, Oct.14, for the latest edition of Golden Boy Live! on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes featuring unbeaten junior middleweight Jermell "Iron Man" Charlo against New York City southpaw Jose Angel "Silver Boy" Rodriguez.

The event will also feature a special guest appearance by boxing superstar and former World Champion Roy Jones Jr.

"Rodriguez is a tough veteran who has definitely fought quality opposition," said Charlo.  "It's my job to make him look like an amateur and get him out of there.  That's what I plan on doing on October 14."

"This is a great opportunity and I thank Golden Boy Promotions and FOX Sports 1 for making this happen," said Rodriguez.  "Now it's up to me to get the job done and I'm more confident than ever that my hand will be raised."

"We are very much looking forward to bringing the Golden Boy Live! series to the BB&T Center," said Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions.  "One of the best parts of consistently hosting this Monday night fight series, is the opportunity to showcase up and coming fighters in different cities so that fight fans across the country have the chance to see great fights live."

Charlo vs. Rodriguez, a 10-round junior middleweight bout, is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and Sunrise Sports & Entertainment and sponsored by Corona and O'Reilly Auto Parts.  The BB&T Center doors open at 7:00 p.m. ET and the first bell rings at 8:00 p.m. ET.  The FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes bi-lingual simulcast will air live at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT.  Additional televised undercard bouts will be announced shortly.

Tickets priced at $196.25 (VIP Tables), $75, $50 and $25, not including applicable service charges, are now available for purchase at all Ticketmaster outlets, by calling (800) 745-3000, online at http://www.ticketmaster.com and at the BB&T Center box office.

Houston's Jermell Charlo (21-0, 10 KO's) has stepped up big time in 2013, winning both the WBC Continental Americas and USBA Junior Middleweight Titles with his victories over Harry Joe Yorgey and Demetrius Hopkins, respectively.  Now hoping to keep his unbeaten run intact when he battles the upset-minded Rodriguez, the 23-year-old "Iron Man" promises a performance to remember when he competes in front of the nation on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes.

A versatile veteran who has won five of his last six bouts, 34-year-old Jose Angel Rodriguez (17-2-1, 2 KO's) is coming off of back-to-back victories over Russell Jordan and Denis Douglin that have him in fine stead heading into the biggest fight of his career against Charlo on Oct. 14. And given his southpaw style and experience, "Silver Boy" can certainly make it a tough night for the hot prospect in Florida.

What's the rush, slowly but surely build these brothers. In a year or two they will be in the mix if not champions.

I wish the Charlo brothers would fight opposition equal to their skill level, not no hopers just to pad a record.
