This Saturday night from Monterrey, Mexico, live on PPV, the fight world will witness the return of the former seven time world champion Erik Morales, as “El Terrible” takes on the heavy-handed Jose Alfaro for the WBC Intercontinental welterweight title. But before the main event, rounding out the undercard will be the undefeated heavyweight contender David “Niño” Rodriguez (32-0, 30 KOs), who will be taking on the former Brazilian Olympian Daniel Bispo (22-12, 16 KOs) in a scheduled ten round match-up.
Rodriguez, a native of El Paso , TX who is known for his power punching style, has knocked out 30 of his 32 opponents, stopping 24 in the opening round. All though Rodriguez is not over looking Bispo, the #12 ranked heavyweight in the WBA wants the bigger names in the division, and believes fighting on the undercard of the Erik Morales bout will get him that recognition he needs, “It is an honor to fight under Erik Morales,” explains Rodriguez, “not only is he is a warrior, but I believe this is a great opportunity to showcase my talents.”
“The Champion Returns,” presented by KO Entertainment, is being distributed in the United States by Integrated Sports Media for live viewing at 9 PM/ET – 6 PM/PT on both cable and satellite pay-per-view via iN Demand, DIRECTV, TVN and DISH Network, for a suggested retail price of $29.95.
