10/21 SHOBOX Octoberfist Results: Rodriguez W10 Rosinsky

Edwin Rodriquez W10 Will Rosinsky 
(super middleweights) In a fight that was better and somewhat more competitive than the scoring would indicate, Edwin "La Bomba" Rodriquez won a ten round unanimous decision over the never-say-die Will "Power" Rosinsky in this SHOBOX main event. Boxing behind an effective jab and going to the body with regularity, Rodriquez won on all three judge's cards by scores of 100-90. Rosinsky was pesky to say the least and he occasionally exploited the still porous defense of Rodriguez with good shots of his own. Easily the best and most entertaining fight of the night. KO Digest scored the fight 98-93, giving Rosinsky the 3rd and 9th with the 7th even. Rodriquez stays undefeated and improves to 20-0 w/ 14 KOs while Rosinsky goes to 14-1 w/ 8 KOs.

A melee broke out in the crowd after the fight between drunken fans unhappy about the decision.
