Allentown, Pa. – This Jr. Welterweight sensation to watch closely New Jersey born Jerome Rodriguez (4-0, 2KO’s) fighting out of Allentown, Pennsylvania. has focused dreams of glory in boxing.

Raising eyebrows back in June at the Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem, Pa. Rodriguez treated opponent Treysean Wiggins like grass and he was certainly the weed wackier.

In front of capacity crowd at the Sands, Rodriguez digged into Wiggins by out punching and out jabbing him firing defining body shots ending Wiggins night with 2nd Round TKO, The contest was not dull posing but beneficial for Rodriguez and the best is yet to come.

More importantly, Rodriguez contributes in giving Allentown Boxing Club an identity, He and the likes of fighter Renaldo Cruz have settled in giving excellence in hard training and prestige performance it’s there signature and it means everything.

Rodriguez ready to step into the ring on August 10th at the Sands Casino Resort against tuff Ariel Duran (7-5-1, 4 KO’s). I include this young talent shows to be a very entertaining fighter, I think he is damn good, and one to watch. Rodriguez constructs a good image of himself in and out the ring and he makes a point to do that 24 hrs a day. Before any of the alphabet organization title storms come through a fighters carrier I like the looks if a young fighter strong and well grounded humble and just wants to fight hard, He looks to handle his goals on course.

I tip my hat to him; he’s a great champion. He has clubbing, solid power and you can feel the weight of every punch he throws.”

Kissimmee. Florida. – The future continues to get brighter in the sweet science as up and coming Super Lightweight star Vincente “El Loco” Mosquera (33-2-1, 18 KO’s) did not get distracted or derailed by a common Joan Guzman once again not making weight for a fight coming in a whopping 8 pounds heavy. It did not stop Mosquera from shining bright at the Kissimmee Civic Center last night’s All Star Boxing, Inc. on Telemundo Boxing series. The target was set quick as Cosme “El Chino” Rivera (35-17-3, 24 KO’s) one of many older fighters that takes fights at short notice gave good veteran show but certainly was far from enough as the WBA Ranked #5 fighter Mosquera punished Cosme.

Cosme a slower started could not match the connecting power punches of the quicker Mosquera, who continually backed up Cosme with the jab and quick shots to the body and head just having his way breaking down Cosme who’s aggression just continued to diminish as the fight went on. At the end of the sixth round referee Max Parker, Jr. in Cosme’s corner certified he could not continue action just before the start of round seven. @allstarboxing @fernandezboxing @telemundo

THE SECOND COMING OF JEFF “LEFT HOOK” LACY

St.Petersburg, Florida – He looks to bring out the best in himself, after a few years away from boxing Former Super Middleweight World Champion Jeff “Left Hook” Lacy (25-4, 17 KO’s) For a long time Lacy has been away from the ring since his loss to Dhafir Smith in 2010. He can no longer be denied, boxing critics were quick to judge him like a pair of Blood-Stain trunks or fighter that has lost a step.

Here what Lacy decides to do about all that, In front of a packed crowed of press at the ONYX Night Club with Promoter Roy Cruz from One Punch Boxing Promotions & Entertainment signs Jeff Lacy to a fight contract, Vice President of One Punch Boxing Nick Sityar J.D. Opens the press conference by saying “Lacy still has it…As far as energy and skill it doesn’t get better then Jeff Lacy, My visit too Dan Birmingham St. Pete Boxing Club I watched Jeff work extremely hard and looks in great shape’.

Sityar also stated that Lacy is what we are looking for in a fighter, We want him and all our fighters to bring action to the game, We want our boxing audience to come back and ask when are we going to see another One Punch Boxing show and Jeff fits right in.

“Jeff is not a board fighter he brings it on, he attacks and the end of the day that is a perfect fit for us, we have the foundation to bring exiting boxing back to Florida. We have fighters Clarence Booth, Bryant Perrella the missing peace is that big name Ladies and gentleman that big name is Jeff Lacy and we are here to say we got him.

Jeff Lacy: I am glad to be with One Punch Boxing Promotions, anytime I’m in that ring win, lose or draw your goanna get my heart and soul out of that fight trust me on that, I plan on getting back into the ring August 24th of this year. I learned so much about myself and my last few fights I fought angry not intelligent it is a new time and I feel great and ready to fight, My hands will do all my talking.

Roy Cruz – Promoter: Thanks Nick VP of One Punch Boxing Promotions for negotiating this deal with Lacy, and matchmaker Juan Martinez who is a huge part of the future of One Punch Boxing Promotions, He is goanna make it happen for that opponent to meet Lacy in the Ring, We have to do what’s best for Jeff hopefully we get 1, 2, and 3 and many other exiting fights from him and that’s what we want I am proud to be sitting here right next to Jeff Lacy.

Lacy made it clear at this time he is not looking for a title shot it’s a process he is grateful to put the gloves on again and fight proudly. Being able to get back into the ring and show people he is fighting, there is a number of world class fighters he can beat, Lacy training like a beast the few years off still has the elusiveness and athleticism to punch make no mistake about it.
