Late night tonight Telemundo kicks off its spring boxing series with an old-fashioned Puerto Rico vs. Mexico themed battle when Miguel Cartagena(14-2, 5 KOs) takes on Richard Rodriguez (12-3, 4 KOs) in a 10 round bout for the WBO Latin Jr. Bantamweight Title. It is a big spot on national TV for two fighters who are looking to get over the hump and into the next level of competition.
For Philadelphia’s Cartagena – it is a great opportunity to show the world first hand that he is back for good against a known durable fighter who comes to win. Rodriguez, a Telemundo regular over the past year, said “I’m expecting a very tough fight. I’ve prepared well and I really want to start a new win streak once again to get into world title contention”. This one is expected to be a rumble. Tune in at 11:30 PM – Verizon Channel 512, Comcast Channel 24
