Rodriguez KO’s Thompson

In the first professional card in almost 40 years at Mechanic’s Hall, hometown hero Edwin Rodriguez floored and later KO’d Patrick Thompson in the second round.  Thompson, who had gone the distance with some big names in boxing, was stunned early in the round and was visibly stunned when his corner threw in the towel in front of a raucous partisan crowd chanting for Rodriguez.

After the fight, Rodriguez’ new promoter Lou DiBella said he was very impressed by Rodriguez, and plans on having him fight three times a year in Worcester going forward.

More to come tomorrow and in next week’s issue.
