Unbeaten IBF World Bantamweight Champion Emmanuel Rodriguez from Puerto Rico is ready to face his mandatory, Australia’s unbeaten Jason Maloney.

“I am looking forward to Saturday,” said Rodriguez. “I feel good, and I hope Moloney is in great shape because he is going to fight a real fighter.”

A big Puerto Rican crowd is expected to support Rodriguez on Saturday.

“It is really an honour to be the first Puerto Rican to defend his title in Orlando. I am ready to put on a great show in front of my countrymen.”

Jason Moloney has - not surprisingly - completely other plans for his night on Saturday. In the build-up for the fight he has promised to ‘shock the world’, and at Thursday’s press conference he continued his confident attitude.
