As previously reported by Fightnews, it has now been confirmed that IBF #2 rated, Delvin Rodriguez (24-2-2, 14 KOs) will fight for the vacant IBF welterweight championship against IBF #3 rated Isaac Hlatshwayo (28-1-1, 10 KOs) on August 1 at the Mohegan Sun Resort and Casino in Uncasville, CT. The bout will be a rematch of their highly entertaining draw that took place in November in Hlatshwayo’s home country of South Africa. This time Rodriguez will have the home advantage as Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing won an IBF purse bid for the bout. “Delvin promised me that if he gets a rematch against Hlatshwayo in the U.S. that he is going to knock him out. We delivered on our end by winning the purse bid, now Delvin must deliver on his, and trust me when I tell you I couldn’t be more confident that he will,” stated DeGuardia.
