STAR BOXING’S ACCOMPLISHED VETERAN DELVIN RODRIGUEZ FACES ERISLANDY LARA FOR WBA SUPER WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP ON PREMIERE BOXING CHAMPIONS SERIES TO BE TELEVISED ON SPIKE TV FRIDAY NIGHT, JUNE 12
New York, June 3 – Star Boxing’s popular super welterweight veteran Delvin Rodriguez (28-7-4, 16 KOs) will square off against WBA World Super Welterweight Champion Erislandy “The American Dream” Lara (20-2-2, 12 KOs) in a 12-round title affair at UIC Pavilion in Chicago on Friday night, June 12. SPIKE TV will televise on its Premiere Boxing Champions series at 9:00 PM.
“We’re proud to have Delvin Rodriguez, with whom we have had a long and successful relationship, showcased on Spike TV, our second fighter in three weeks to appear on the network,” said Joe DeGuardia, president of Star Boxing. “Delvin is extremely popular and familiar to TV boxing fans with regular appearances on ESPN’s ‘Friday Night Fights.’ He is a true gentleman and competitor who has had some spectacular outings.”
After last week’s action-packed welterweight contest featuring Star Boxing’s Chris Algieri and Amir Khan averaged over 1 million views, SPIKE TV will present another primetime fight.
“I know I have a tough fight ahead because Lara is a great, slick boxer,” says the Dominican-born Rodriguez. “I’m not going to tell the people what I’m going to do, but they should know I’m in the best shape ever and my mind is set on autopilot to win no matter what it takes.”
During a 39-fight career, Rodriguez has faced off against such champions as Miguel Cotto and Austin Trout, while notching victories against top-caliber fighters like Mike Arnaoutis, Shamone Alvarez and Pawel Wolak.
Lara has wins over Freddy Hernandez, Alfredo Angulo and Austin Trout. The 32-year-old Cuban champion has recently won his 20th match, defeating former world champion Ishe Smith.
