El Paso’s undefeated David Rodriguez continues his assault on the heavyweight division on FRIDAY, FEB. 11, 2011, when the powerful assassin returns to face Matt Hicks at the Don Haskins Center.
For Rodriguez, 33-0 (31 knockouts), training is winding down as the focus and intensity revs up. The Coronado High School graduate has incrementally removed all of the possible distractions from his life as Friday Fight Night approaches.
D-Rod has even shut down his social networking capabilities.
“I’m signing off of Facebook until after the fight,” Rodriguez wrote on his status bar early this week. “Thank you for all of the support. I will see everybody on Friday, Feb. 11.”
Rodriguez will meet Las Vegas' Hicks, 13-5 (12 KO's) after original foe Ty Cobb withdrew from the fight this week.
In the co-main event, Hector Camacho Jr. (52-4-1, 28 ko's) will meet Juan Astorga (14-5, 9 ko's).
Also on the fight card is El Paso's Jennifer Han.
