Saul Rodriguez-Antonio Capulin Battle on May 30th

By Francisco Salazar

Lightweight Saul Rodriguez will fight Antonio Capulin in a battle of unbeaten prospects on May 30, Top Rank matchmaker Brad Goodman told BoxingScene.com.

The eight round main event will take place at the Florentine Gardens in Hollywood, Calif.

Also on the 'Solo Boxeo Tecate' card, welterweight Alex Saucedo (17-0, 12 KOs) will fight an opponent to be determined.

Both bouts will be televised on UniMas, beginning at 11 p.m. ET/ PT.

Rodriguez (16-0-1, 13 KOs) was scheduled to fight Jerry Nardo on March 14 in Glendale, a suburb of Los Angeles. About two weeks before the fight took place, Rodriguez had to withdraw from the fight after coming down with a case of the chicken pox.

In his last bout on January 17, Rodriguez knocked out Carlos Rodriguez in the second round.

Capulin (14-0, 6 KOs) decisioned Marteze Logan by unanimous decision over six rounds in his last fight on November 15.

Capulin is scheduled to fight this Saturday at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Tex., his hometown. He faces Jose Arturo Esquivel Porras (9-2, 2 KOs) in a six round bout on the non-televised portion of the Golden Boy Promotions card.

This is a pretty interesting fight on UniMas. Two undefeated 22-year old prospects. Rodriguez has some real natural power, but he's in a significant step-up fight here against Capulin.
