Orlando, FL, (October 4, 2013) Two-time world title challenger and top rated junior middleweight Delvin Rodriguez and Star Boxing’s Joe DeGuardia attended the Final Press Conference yesterday in Orlando, Florida just two days ahead of Rodriguez’s battle with three-division world champion Miguel Cotto set for this Saturday, October 5 at the Amway Center and broadcast Live on HBO®.


Delvin Rodriguez:


“I’m just enjoying every second of this because this is an opportunity that I earned. I got to this opportunity the hard way. After so many years of hard work, one bad decision after the other, tough fights, I’m just thankful to God that I’m here. There was a time when I said forget about boxing, forget this, this isn’t for me anymore, but I said I’m not going to throw so many years of my life away after so much hard work. So I’m glad I stuck with it and thanks to God I’m here.”


“This is my time, my turn to win. I have enjoyed every second of this promotion. Every fighter has a defining moment in his career. For me, my career takes a big turn for greatness on Saturday night, I will beat Cotto.”


Joe DeGuardia, President of Star Boxing:


“Throughout his entire career Delvin has been a warrior, always battling in the ring. Along with the sensational battles with Wolak that everyone knows about, he’s also fought numerous times overseas and on the road where he’s been the victim of hometown scoring in some very close battles.”


“Come Saturday night the fans in this beautiful city of Orlando and those watching on HBO are going to see a tremendous fight. Delvin is in terrific shape and ready for the biggest fight of his career.”


The Miguel Cotto/Delvin Rodriguez 12 round super welterweight battle will be seen in over 180 counties across the globe.


Cotto and Rodriguez boast a combined record of 65-10-3 (46 KOs) — a winning percentage of over 83% and a victory by knockout ratio of 71%.
