Madison Square Garden, New York City - Junior middleweight contender Delvin Rodriguez (26-5-3, 14KOs) got the biggest win of his career, a dominating ten round decision over Pawel Wolak (29-2) in their rematch on Saturday night. Unlike their "Fight of The Year" encounter which ended in a draw this past July, Rodriguez stuck to his boxing and won the majority of the rounds.

"The tactic that we practiced for much of camp, was to stay low. When I stay low I feel much stronger. Also he's a guy that throws wild hooks. I'm tall but if you're standing tall all the time it's easy to get you. I saw that in the first fight. We tried to correct that and I think we did a good at it," Rodriguez said.

In the tenth round, Rodriguez rallied hard and came close to stopping Wolak in the fight. He threw multiple combinations and tried to secure a knockout win. Rodriguez wanted to avoid the possibility of another lackluster decision.

"If you follow my career. There have been so many times when I was winning so close but I didn't get the decision. That was the first thing that me and my trainer talked about in the corner, that if we have a chance [to get a knockout] - to go for it. That second wind just kicked in and I wanted to take his head off. I wanted to finish with a knockout," Rodriguez said.

If that was a 12 round bout I think Rodriguez could've k.o'd Wolak by the last round from the way he was hammering him in the 10th.

Good to see Delvin get his just due this time getting the decision when he hasn't on multiple occasions this should springboard him into a bigger money fight. Like to see him take on Vanes to show where he is if he could beat Delvin.

wolak career could be done if his face continues to swell really bad too bad he wont have a title opportunity now but great win for delvin he can fight a top contender and move up in the ranks
