Rodriguez vs Guevara FULL FIGHT: June 3, 2016 – PBC on Spike

(June 3, 2016) Undefeated Puerto Rican bantamweight Emmanuel Rodriguez (15-0, 10 KOs) beat experienced Mexican Alberto “Metro” Guevara (24-3, 9 KOs) by unanimous decision (99-91, 100-90, 99-91).

Rodriguez controlled the opening rounds with a variety of left hooks and overhand rights, backing Guevara up at will.

“My strategy was to come in and attack him because he is not your typical Mexican-style fighter,” said Rodriguez.

An accidental head butt at the end of round four led to a cut that developed under the left eye of Guevara.

“We knew he was an awkward fighter,” said Rodriguez of their heads colliding, “But he was even more awkward than we thought.”

A highly decorated amateur, Rodriguez continued his calculated, methodical approach throughout the middle rounds.

Rodriguez added, “We weren’t able to really decipher him in the first rounds, but we were able to adjust eventually.”

Guevara, who has fought in two world title fights, threw a change-up and came out fighting more wildly in round seven, causing Rodriguez some minor issues with the distance.

However, Rodriguez stuck to his game plan and used his superior timing to coast to victory in the later rounds.

Guevara said, “My plan was to box him and tap him when I had him, but things didn’t come out that way. I’m not sure if it was a lack of focus or what it was, I’m just not sure. I feel good though. It was a hard fight, harder than I expected. He’s a strong guy. I felt a little constrained and a little slow, but I tried my best tonight.”

Rodriguez summed up the win adding, “I feel great, thank God. I’m really happy with this Victory, it was a victory that I needed to add onto my record and thankfully I was able to get it. Now I’m going to take a month off and wait until my management team tells us what fight date comes next so we can continue to pursue the goals we have set for ourselves.”
