Puerto Rican amateur sensation , Emmanuel 'Manny' Rodriguez ( 9-0, 5 KO's ) will face Alexis 'Beaver' Santiago ( 16-3, 7 KO's ) of Phoenix, Arizona in a 10 round maint event bout for the vacant WBO Latin bantamweight title on Saturday, August, 2 at the Cosme Beitia Coliseum in Cataño,PR. The event is promoted by Fresh Boxing in association with M/V Power Promotions.

Rodriguez, a former Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games champion mentioned that,"Now it's time to prove where do I belong in the boxing world. It's my time to shine. Santiago is a very good fighter, and my respect for him, and his team for accepting this fight in Puerto Rico. I'm ready for war!", stated Emmanuel Rodriguez.

The undefeated Puerto Rican prospect obtained in December, the most significant victory of his young career by defeating former world title contender, David Quijano by unanimous decision.

Santiago, a WBC United States (USNBC) title holder, defeated on his last outing ( February ), power puncher, Hanzel 'Rude Boy' Martinez ( 20-2, 16 KO ) by unanimous decision.

"The fans can expect a very good fight. I know 'Manny' is good, but has not fought anybody like me" said Santiago, who trains at the Mayweather Boxing Gym in Las Vegas, under the tutelage of Puerto Rican, Rafael Ramos, "We know that 'Manny' is a good technical boxer but I don't think he got the tools to handle my pressure and experience. The WBO Latin title is coming to Mexico and to my people of Phoenix, Arizona", said a confident Santiago.

Rodriguez vs Santiago will be televised live on 'DIRECTV Puerto Rico', starting at 9:00pm ( ET ), channel 161.
