Mayweather Promotions Signs Undefeated Lightweight Saul “Neno” Rodriguez
Mayweather Promotions has added exciting prospect Saul Rodriguez, the baby faced fighter who’s already been making noise in the boxing industry, to their stable of fighters. A proven crowd pleaser, Rodriguez boats a flawless record of 20-0-1 with 15 KO’s and a 71 percent knockout rate.
The twenty-three-year-old prospect was born in Riverside, CA. and scored a first round knockout in his professional debut back in September 2011 against William Fisher and hasn’t looked back since. Rodriguez has stopped his opponent inside of the distance in ten of his last 12 bouts and most recently knocked out Daulis Prescott in May.
“I have worked hard in my career and I have a great team who has helped get me to where I am now. I am developing as a professional fighter, and that comes with making choices to benefit my career,” said Rodriguez. “I am excited to join the Mayweather Promotions team, because it gives me to opportunity to be under the guidance of the best and take my career to new heights!”
“Saul Rodriquez is an exciting prospect, who has already made a name for himself in boxing,” said Leonard Ellerbe. “We are in a position to help these up-and-coming boxers get on track to make sound moves that will build their careers and challenge them to bring out their best.”
Be on the lookout for Saul Rodriguez’ Mayweather Promotions debut in early 2017, as he looks to continue his perfect record and works towards his dream of becoming a lightweight world champion.
Mayweather Promotions is also excited to acknowledge its growing stable of additional new signees: Xavier Martinez (7-0, 4 KO’s), Danny Gonzalez (1-0, 1 KO), Oluwafemi Oyele (1-0), Rolando Romero (1-0, 1 KO), Andres Cortes (4-0), former world title challenger Thomas Dulorme (23-2, 15 KO’s), and Kenny Robles who will make his professional debut on January 14, 2017.
