Golden Boy Promotions returns to the BB & T Center in Sunrise, Florida on Oct. 14 as Houston junior middleweight Jermell “Iron Man” Charlo takes on New York City southpaw Jose Angel “Silver Boy” Rodriguez on the latest edition of Golden Boy Live on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes.
“We are very much looking forward to bringing the Golden Boy Live series to the BB & T Center,” said Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer. “One of the best parts of consistently hosting this Monday night fight series, is the opportunity to showcase up-and-coming fighters in different cities so that fight fans across the country have the chance to see great fights live.”
Charlo is just 23 years old with a mark of 21-0 that includes 10 knockouts.
“Rodriguez is a tough veteran who has definitely fought quality opposition,” said Charlo. “It’s my job to make him look like an amateur and get him out of there. That’s what I plan on doing on October 14.”
Rodriguez, 34, is 17-2-1 with two knockouts.
“This is a great opportunity and I thank Golden Boy Promotions and FOX Sports 1 for making this happen,” said Rodriguez. “Now it’s up to me to get the job done and I’m more confident than ever that my hand will be raised.”
