As an amateur star in Puerto Rico, the 24-year-old Rodriguez amassed a record of 78 wins and was a five time Puerto Rico National Champion. He then decided to bypass the Tokyo Olympics to turn pro instead and won by a phenomenal knockout in his debut.
Luis and his team, renowned boxing attorney Tony Gonzalez, and his promoter, Rivalta Boxing, followed up his pro debut with bouts on June 26, July 3 and August 20.
“The fast track start to Luis’ career is owed to his own work ethic and that of his team. We have all made a commitment to making a mark in boxing and the only way to back that up is by him being in the ring, honing and developing his God-given talent,” said Gonzalez. “More importantly is the fact that Luis has bought into the fast pace philosophy and is all business.”
Luis is scheduled for 6 rounds and will go ahead and start 8 round fights shortly thereafter. “Also we are looking for a step up fight very soon, and realistically looking at a potential regional title fight before the end of November.”
