Rodriguez Ready: I Have The Style To Beat Kelly Pavlik

By Bill Emes

Super middleweight contender Edwin "La Bomba" Rodriguez (22-0, 15KOs) believes that he has what it takes to defeat former middleweight champion Kelly Pavlik (40-2, 34KOs).

Following Saturday's victory over Jason Escalera, Rodriguez called for a fight with Pavlik. His promoter, Lou DiBella, wants to make that fight happen. Both of them have a common opponent Will Rosinsky, and both defeated him by decision.

"My promoter Lou DiBella feels like I'm ready to take on someone like Kelly Pavlik and we're ready. I think it would be a good fight. He has a good style.  He was the undisputed [champion] at 160. A very good fighter, but I do feel that I have the style to beat him. He's very strong but just like [Escalera] but I believe that I'll see his punches coming," Rodriguez said to BoxingScene.com.

Rodriguez should have had a draw with Will Roskinsky. Pavlik had no trouble whatsoever in a comeback fight against Will Roskinsky. I know styles make fights, but Pavlik would play with Rodriguez. I want to like Rodriguez like everyone else…

Pavlik would take a serious beating.
