EDWIN RODRIGUEZ READY TO MOVE UP TO THE WORLD LEVEL

Edwin Rodriguez TKO8 Jason Escalera... Edwin "La Bomba" Rodriguez (22-0, 15 KOs) punished Jason "Monstruo" Escalera (13-1-1, 12 KOs) until referee Steve Smoger called off the fight early in the eighth round at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut. [Editor's note: Rodriguez celebrated his twins' sixth birthday by busting open Escalera's ear. It was clear Escalera lacked the experience to compete with Rodriguez]. Rodriguez came out after the first bell throwing bombs and nearly dropped Escalera on several occasions, winning the first round 10-8 on all three judges' scorecards. The Dominican living in Worcester, MA never let up, winning every round convincingly. "I was surprised he got out of the first round," Rodriguez admitted.  "He's definitely a strong kid; tough with raw power but easy to predict.  We want any of the top 10 guys, definitely (Kelly) Pavlik.  I wanted to send a message and I think my performance speaks for itself." Rodriguez's promoter Lou DiBella noted, "that was the offensive machine Edwin can be that you didn't see against Donovan George.  He fought a tough kid with an iron chin.  He's ready for Pavlik at 168, or (Lucian) Bute or (Jean) Pascal at 175.  I hope HBO brings us the biggest fight because Edwin is ready to step up and be a star."  source: dibella press release
