Worcester’s Middleweight boxing phenom Edwin Rodriguez is set to take a huge career step forward this Thursday. 9-0 as a pro, the former USA Boxing and Golden Gloves champion will officially sign with a promoter and announce his next fight, presumably in March.
Rodriguez’ site lists a “TBD” fight on March 19; there are no fights scheduled on that night, according to Boxrec.com. But Irish Ropes – a promoter who has had stated interest in Rodriguez – has a card at Madison Square Garden scheduled for March 16th; on that card is Irish boxer Simon O’Donnell, an 8-1 middleweight with no listed opponent.
We’ll see on Thursday.
