Harmonito Dela Torre Furious Over Saul Rodriguez Withdrawal

In a stunning development, the fight between unbeaten fighters Harmonito “Hammer” Dela Torre and Saul ‘Kid Dinamita” Rodriguez is off.

Jim Claude Manangquil, chief executive officer of Sanman Promotions, announced that Rodriqguez pulled out of the fight.

“We had our contract signed and just a couple of days before the fight, Saul pulled out. It’s frustrating but things like this do happen in boxing,” said Manangquil.

Dela Torre and Rodriguez were supposed to fight in August 22 at the Sams Town Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

It was supposed to be an eighth-round, non-title fight under the super featherweight division.

Dela Torre was saddened by the cancellation.

“It’s really frustrating to be in this situation. I have prepared well and just like that, the fight got canceled,” said Dela Torre, who has been training in Miami, Florida for the past three months along with Sanman Boxing Gym stablemates Reymart Gaballo, John Vincent Moralde and Mike Plania.

The fight could have been a blockbuster with both fighters sporting impressive records.

Dela Torre is yet to lose in 19 fights and owns 12 knockout victories, while Rodriguez has 21 wins, 15 by knockouts and one draw.

Rodriguez has collected 15 straight wins since settling for a draw against Cesar Garcia last October 13, 2012 at the Home Depot Center in Carson.

Saul was probably overweight and out of shape especially considering his last fight was 6 months ago!
