Promising American fighter of the second Featherweight (up to 59 kg) Ryan Garcia defeated a strong fighter from the Dominican Republic, Braulio Rodriguez (19-4, 17 KO’s).
In the opening round the underdog has been on the canvas — when you exit the infayting the young prospect was a great one. Rodriguez continued to fight, and for the remainder of the three-minute 30 seconds an American has not managed to develop success, was too chaotic. Rodriguez acted in favorite manner: with bent arms, which suddenly took off at improbable angles and relying solely on your reflexes.
Garcia did not rush things, boxed carefully and using the jab and minimize risks. Rodriguez tried to carry the ring sweeping swings Garcia, familiar faces, all airs and graces, calling favorite make a fun contest. And the skipped beats nodded his head, claiming that it was not painful.
But in the 5th round, Garcia again failed Rodriguez, shook left controcam, and then sent in a hard knockdown with a series of finishing moves.
