Emmanuel Rodriguez Stops Giovanni Delgado in Fajardo

From the Municipal Equestrian Coliseum in Fajardo, world ranked and cuurrent World Boxing Council Latino champion in the 118-pound division, Emmanuel 'Manny' Rodriguez (17-0, 12 KO) of Vega Baja, successfully defended his title by securing technical knockout in the fifth round over Mexican warrior Giovanni 'Lloviznas' Delgado (16-6, 9 KO's).

After receiving intense and constant punishment in the high and low planes by the promising Puerto Rican boxer, Delgado decided not to come out for the fifth round.

"I'm happy with the result of the fight because Delgado had lasted the distance in close fights with great fighters at 122 pounds and with me this was in his weight of 118," said Rodriguez.

"I felt that I dominated the whole fight, but I could not trust overlook things because Delgado did not back off. He disguised things well and one thinks of a possible b-plan coming and him, getting more technical and then re-tightening the fight, but it all ended in the fifth round. When you fight an opponent who has defeated boxers like César Juarez and Meserito Rodriguez, you are waiting for a war from the beginning to the end," said an excited Rodriguez.

In other bouts, at junior welterweight Subriel Matías Matthew (7-0, 7 KO) of Fajardo won by TKO in the 26 seconds of the second round against Mexican Luis Alberto 'Tortas' Pelayo (14-8, 8 KO ).

In another exciting fight in the 140-pound division, Bernard 'Bimbo' Lebron (8-0, 4 KO) of Trujillo Alto defeated by unanimous decision the always fiery, Rolando Rivera (4-2, 2 KO) of Ponce. All three judges scored 60-54.

In the bantamweight (118 lbs) division, in another debutant duel, Jonathan 'Bum Bum' López (1-0, 1 KO) of Humacao defeated Bryan Elias Candelario (0-1) of Naguabo by TKO.

In featherweight division, Nelson Colón (1-0, 1 KO) of Cayey won by TKO at 1:37 of the second round to Waldemar Perez (0-2) of Hatillo.

In a female amateur boxing match at 106, Teichmarie Lopez de Naguabo beat Kina Delgado of Caimito by way of 3-2 in a thrilling match.

Good win for Manny as he continues along and good progression also for Subriel "Browny" Matias who is now 7-0-7 KO's with another KO win. Lots of prospects to keep an eye on out of P.R. Somebody has to rise…
