Top Rank in association with Star Boxing held the final pre fight press conference today at BB King's restaurant in Times Square for the much anticipated rematch between Delvin Rodriguez and Pawel Wolak.
The first fight between these two Jr. Middleweight's took place at nearby Roseland Ballroom on July 15th of this year and is a leading candidate for "Fight of the Year" honors. Both fighters looked fit and ready as each took their turn at the podium addressing the large crowd in attendance.
Rodriguez promoter Joe DeGuardia addressed the crowd and referenced the first meeting between the 2 warriors and said "These are the kind of fights that Boxing fans want to see. Delvin Rodriguez is a true pro, a fight-fans' favorite, and even hardcore members of the boxing industry are looking forward to this fight. DeGuardia then introduced his fighter, Delvin Rodriguez to the audience.
Rodriguez approached the microphone and stated, "You will see another great fight, possibly better than our first one. I've had a great camp and I'm looking to having fun again in there with Pawel just as I did the first time. I promise you I will be faster, stronger, and more determined than our first meeting and I am supremely confident that I will be victorious this Saturday evening".
Wolak was up to the microphone next and kept it short and sweet, "I'm ready to go, I feel great, f*** it, lets fight".
The 10 round IBA Jr. Middleweight championship is a featured bout on the undercard
of another highly anticipated rematch between Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito this Saturday evening, December 3rd at the Mecca of Boxing, Madison Square Garden in NYC, NY.
