Andre Ward Dominates Rodriguez in Mismatch of Skill

Citizens Business Bank Arena, Ontario, California - In a non-title bout, fought at a catch-weight of 170-pounds, WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward (27-0, 14KOs) dominated previously undefeated Edwin Rodriguez (24-1, 16KOs) for a twelve round unanimous decision victory. The weight limit got changed when Rodriguez failed to make weight on Friday. The scores were 118-106, 117-107, 116-108.

It was a dirty fight with a lot of rough tactics. It got so rough in the fourth round, when both fighters continued to brawl as the referee tried to pull them apart. Referee Jack Reiss got hit during the melee and exploded afterwards. He took away two points from both fighters and warned both of a possible disqualification if the rough fight continued.

Ward was landing many accurate shots on Rodriguez, who missed the majority of his counters.  In some rounds the fight was a glorified sparring session with Ward landing most punches at will. Rodriguez was cut above his left eye in the twelfth round due to a clash of heads.

[QUOTE=bojangles1987;13938363]Take this paragraph, warp us to 1998, and put it in a Roy Jones thread and it would fit perfectly. Not saying Ward is Roy Jones, but it's startling to see how people have said this exact same thing about…
