Saul Rodriguez To Return on Berchelt-Roman ESPN+ Card

By Ryan Burton

In July, broke the news that super featherweight prospect Saul "Neno" Rodriguez (21-0-1) had parted ways with Mayweather Promotions and returned to his original promoter Top Rank Inc. The 25-year-old said that he left on amiable terms.

The hard hitting Southern California native only fought once under Mayweather's promotional banner, winning a split decision over Oscar Bravo in February, 2017.

After over a year and a half out of the ring, Rodriguez confirmed to that he will return on November 3rd on the Miguel Berchelt-Mickey Roman undercard in El Paso, Texas. The entire card will be streamed on ESPN+. His opponent will be Emiliano Martin Garcia (16-2) of Argentina.


"I am very excited. It has been too long since I have been in the ring," Rodriguez told "I will still be an exciting fighter but I want to show a more dedicated and disciplined Neno."

Rodriguez, who is trained by his father Saul Rodriguez Sr, fought on several Solo Boxeo cards as a prospect. He scored the biggest win of his young career in November, 2015 when he blew out the then once beaten Ivan Najera in the first round of their TruTV televised co-feature bout underneath the Gilberto Ramirez-Gevorg Khatchikian main event that took place in Las Vegas.

If everything goes well on November 3rd, Rodriguez plans on making up for lost time. He hopes to get back in the ring again before the end of the year.

"I want to go back-to-back. Hopefully I can be back again in December. I am ready and want to stay active," said Rodriguez.
