Default Edwin Rodriguez: tell me about him

I don't know anything about your man Rodriguez. Seems like he's currently a bit of an outlier on the SMW scene but very promising. What's he like?

How does he compare to the likes of Stevenson and Oosthuizen?

P.S. I tried the search function on my phone but I don't think ESB is fully optimised for mobile so I wasn't able to find any other thread about him.

La Bomba is a boxer/puncher...not the smoothest boxer nor the hardest puncher but he's solid enough to hang with anyone up to just below the elite level.

I feel like one of the things that's exciting about SMW at the moment is that, after Ward, there are several boxers in each tier. This makes for a great division. There are divisions within the division, so to speak, and so there are plenty of potential fights that can be looked forward to. Would you place him as the best below the elite?

Hmm, no...but he's in the mix with Groves, Oost, Pavlik, Balzsay etc.

I'd probably back him to stop Stevenson, tbh. He's a great deal better all-around than Donovan George (who both have beaten somewhat easily)

Yeah, I had Rosinsky comfortably ahead. Shutout for Rodriguez is crazy.

Edwin is a crude slugger trying to turn boxer because his face cuts up easily. Not solid fundamentally and no overwhelming power either.

Definitely a step below the gatekeeper level. Maybe journeyman talent and ability wise.
