Bethlehem, PA:  Gamalier Rodriguez retained his NABO featherweight title with a hard-fought 10-round decision over tougher-than-expected Jorge Pazos in the 10-round main event in front of 1,152 fans at the Sands Casino Resort.

Rodriguez, 125.3, of Bayamon, Puerto Rico, worked well to the body and was just a bit quicker than Pazos, 125, Guamuchil, Mexico, winning by scores of 98-92 and 98-91 twice.  The wide scores were not indicative of the competitive nature of the match.

The win marked Rodriguez’ first defense of his NABO belt and brought his record to 22-2-3, 15 K0s.  The loss dropped Pazos to 19-6-1, 13 K0s.

Local welterweight Ronald Cruz ended a two-fight losing streak, working the body and head of Rodolfo Armenta and also utilizing his seldom-seen jab, stopping Armenta at 2.40 of the second round of their scheduled eight-round contest.

Cruz, 147.8, who is scheduled to return to the Sands Casino on Thursday evening, Sept. 26, improves to 18-2, 13 K0s.  Aremnta, 145.2, of Rio Rico, AZ, slips to 12-11-1, 9 K0s.

Rising star Felix Verdejo, 134.7 pounds, of San Juan, Puerto Rico, went six rounds for the first time, earning a unanimous decision (60-52 three times) over game Guillermo DelGadillo, 133.2, of Walla Walla, WA.

Verdejo improves to 7-0, 6 K0s, while DelGadillo drops to 4-5-1.
