Rodriguez returns to Top Rank after two years!
LAS VEGAS (Aug. 2, 2018) – Saul “Neno” Rodriguez has agreed to a multi-year promotional agreement with Top Rank, Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum announced today. Rodriguez fought under the Top Rank banner from 2011-2016 and has returned with an eye on contending in the 130-pound division.
“I’m very excited to be back with Top Rank.”
“I’m ready to stay busy fighting and training while working towards a world title.”
Peter Kahn, manager for Rodriguez states:
“We’re very happy to be back with Top Rank.”
“Top Rank is the leading promotional company in the world and will provide Saul with a platform to accomplish all of his goals as a professional fighter.”
Rodriguez (21-0-1, 15 KOs), a Riverside, California, native turned pro in 2011 following a successful amateur career. The only blemish on his ledger is a 2012 technical draw against Cesar Garcia after a clash of heads caused Garcia’s right eye to swell. Rodriguez went 4-0 in 2014 and 2015 and had a breakthrough performance on Nov. 20, 2015 in Las Vegas, when he knocked out the usually durable Ivan Najera in the opening round. He followed up the Najera win with a seventh-round knockout against former world title challenger Daulis Prescott.
Rodriguez has fought only once since the Prescott win, a 10-round split decision victory against Oscar Bravo on Feb. 24, 2017 in Temecula, California. After a prolonged absence from the ring, the 25-year-old Rodriguez is ready for a fresh start, back where it all began.
Rodriguez’s next bout will be announced soon.
