BoxingScene.com has been advised that undefeated bantamweight prospect Emmanuel "Manny" Rodriguez (13-0, 9KOs) has signed on with manager/adviser Al Haymon.
Rodriguez, who stopped his last four opponents, is part of the increasing new wave of Puerto Rican talent like Felix Verdejo, Prichard Colon and Jose Pedraza.
Colon, Pedraza and several other Puerto Rican fighters have also signed with Haymon.
Rodriguez finished second at the 2010 Youth World Amateur Boxing Championships and he was Puerto Rico's flag-bearer at the inaugural Youth Olympic Games and became the first Puerto Rican fighter to become the flyweight champion in the event's history.
Rodriguez has almost fought exclusively in Puerto Rico. He is expected to make his United States debut in the near future.
