I really hope D Rodriguez can get in shape for this fight . He has so much potential , but seems way overweight and visibly in horrible shape . Crossing my fingers!

I had my hopes high with David years ago. But the lack of quality competition in his career has lead me to believe that he is not going to be the champion this city craves. When David finishes his career, he will be forgotten. So the wait continues.

Forget about David Rodriguez. His career has been a sham. Knowledgable fight fans will not be rooked by all the hype.
David will quit boxing when he is finally matched with a real boxer. His reason will be a made-up injury to his hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, etc.
The real reason will be below the belt. No manhood.

El Paso is a great boxing town. Local government and the Chamber should put together the facilities and promotion to build upon more quality fights in El Paso. This would not only help El Paso fighters but create tourism for the city.
Every fighter has a following and when fighters come to El Paso, their fans will also come.
When last in Albuquerque, couldn't help but notice several El Paso boxers on the programs in several Casino facilities. Seems El Paso boxers need to go elsewhere to box in facilities that El Paso does not have. This is where a city like El Paso that doesn't have Casino hotels with large ballrooms really loses to other cities and even does harm to local boxers that are forced to travel. Casino hotels are not just about gambling but also have facilities that help the tourism market for a city.

I just saw chavez jr win a world title. He has been fighting no bodies for most of his fighting career and has been pampered. His.has.been a no guts to glory story yet today he is a world champion. David's boxing career has been like Chavez. We will see some enough where it goes

Excellent proposal, but our city government is too busy catering to homosexuals to bother with such suggestions.
