PRESS RELEASE: Tickets will go on sale December 22nd for a junior middleweight bout between Delvin Rodriguez and George "Comanche Boy" Tahdooahnippah on Friday, February 15th, 2013 at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT. It was announced by Star Boxing that the fight would be televised on ESPN2's Friday Night Fights. Tickets will be available through Ticketmaster, the Mohegan Sun Box Office and www.StarBoxing.com. The bout will be contested at a catchweight of 157 pounds.
"We're absolutely thrilled to bring Delvin back to the Mohegan Sun for the first time in three years. The fans in Connecticut have been extremely supportive of him throughout his career and he is very excited to return" said DeGuardia. "Going on sale this Saturday, these tickets make a great last minute gift or stocking stuffer for boxing fans."
"For 'Comanche Boy' a fight against Rodriguez represents a terrific opportunity. This will be the first time he has fought on the East Coast and his first main event on ESPN so this is a chance for him to truly impress. He's an undefeated Native American-Indian and a very colorful and aggressive fighter."
A native of nearby Danbury, CT, the Dominican born Rodriguez, 26-6-3 (14KO's), engages in all-action fights. In July 2011, he fought to a draw with Pawel Wolak in a battle that was voted 2011 Fight of the Year. Rodriguez returned in December 2011 to outbox Wolak at Madison Square Garden. In June of this year, Rodriguez lost to Austin Trout via decision.
Fighting out of Lawton, Oklahoma and a proud member of the Comanche Nation, Tahdooahnippah sports a record of 31-0-1 with 23 knockouts and is coming off a third-round stoppage of Gundrick King.
