Fallon, Nevada - Unbeaten 'Kid Dinamita' Saul Rodriguez of Riverside, Ca. has a lot at stake when he takes on tough Texas fighter Ramsey Luna outdoors at the Churchill County Fairgrounds on Saturday, August 22.
The big event is promoted by Top Rank, Let's Get It On Boxing and the City of Fallon.
Saul has a record of 17-0-1, 13 KOs. Ramsey, from Corpus Christi, Texas, is 12-3, 5 KOs. The two super featherweights are in the main event.
"Saul's manager Cameron Dunkin and I know the importance of this fight," said Robert Garcia, chief trainer of Saul. "Winning and looking impressive while doing it is important as Saul is getting closer to a title fight opportunity. Saul has trained very, very hard for this."
Saul said "I know the importance of what this fight is all about. I've been boxing since I was eight years old. I used to wrestle with friends but I always wanted to box. When I saw the fight between Fernando Vargas and Tito Trinidad, that's when I began to box all the time."
Ramsey Luna said "I'm a pressure-style fighter. I come forward. I began boxing when I was 15. My Dad is tough too - he does houses for a living - painting and sheet-rocking."
