[QUOTE=Carlos Alberto;12560922]Seriously!!! Rodriguez is garbage!!! The other two guys I don't even know. The only good fighter on this card is Darchynian (and he may be past his prime).[/QUOTE] WTF are you talking about? have you even seen Del Valle…

HBO needs its own version of ShoBox anyway. I'm all for lesser known fighters getting the opportunity to fight on HBO.

I've been to Rodriquez's last (7) fights. He never makes a prediction. He now says the fight won't go past (6). Edwin's going to school this young man...and then send a loud message to boxing critics. Don't miss it.
