RODRIGUEZ WINS SOLID ON PBC 

  

@labombaboxing Worcester’s Edwin Rodriguez (27-1, 18 KOs) impressed the crowd at Agganis Arena with a dominant third round stoppage over the previously undefeated Craig Baker (16-1, 12 KOs). The ref stopped the fight at 2:22 into the third round because of unanswered strikes to the head. 

Another local favorite, Framingham’s Danny O’Connor (26-2, 10 KOs) was determined to put on a show close to home and he delivered in a big way, stopping Chris Gilbert (13-2, 10 KOs) in the fifth round. O’Connor knocked Gilbert down in rounds two and three before getting the stoppage in round five.
