Star Boxing re-inks Delvin Rodriguez

Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing has announced the re-signing of former world title challenger and perennial contender Delvin Rodriguez. Rodriguez (26-6-3, 14 KOs) is currently world ranked #7 by the WBA. Said DeGuardia, “Star Boxing is honored to extend our relationship with Delvin. Delvin and his team are true professionals that we’ve enjoyed working with over the years. At every show I promote fans approach me wanting to know when Delvin is fighting next and I hope to announce details of his next fight shortly. He’s a must-see attraction on the East Coast and we’re very thankful for the support from the fans.”

Said Rodriguez, “Star Boxing has done very good by me, we work well together, they got me the two opportunities for the world title bouts. I’m back in the gym now and I feel very strong and confident. I want to get right back in the mix to face a top contender for my next fight, maybe Gabriel Rosado or Carlos Molina. There’s a real buzz about Rosado who’s on a nice winning streak and Molina has faced and beaten many top guys. Either one would be a very strong TV fight.”

Rodriguez’s manager A.J. Galante also spoke about the signing and Delvin’s future,”I’m very pleased that Joe and I were able to draw up a multi-year extension for Delvin. Delvin and I felt it was necessary to show our commitment to Star Boxing like they have showed Delvin over the past five years, which included two world title shots, multiple appearances on ESPN, fights on both HBO and SHOWTIME, and staging the Fight of the Year in 2011 against Pawel Wolak.”

“We are happy that we were able to get this contract out of the way, so now we can go back to work and get back on the winning track after our loss in June. Delvin is as hungry as ever and I plan and want him extremely active this coming year. As always Delvin wants the toughest fights out there and being in one of boxing’s deepest divisions, I know we will get those tough fights. Myself along with Joe and Star Boxing matchmaker Ron Katz have already discussed plans for the upcoming months, and Delvin is very excited for what the future holds.”
