Rodriguez stays unbeaten
Pryor, Johnson also victorious
Exciting super middleweight Edwin “La Bomba” Rodriguez (17-0, 13 KOs) scored a ninth round stoppage of James McGirt Jr. (22-3-1, 11 KOs) at Scheels Arena in Fargo, North Dakota. Rodriguez was the aggressor the entire fight, forcing McGirt to keep his guard up trying to fend off Rodriguez’ relentless power shots. Referee Mark Nelson finally waved it off at 1:57 of the ninth after imploring McGirt to “show me something” between rounds.

Unbeaten light heavyweight Marcus “Too Much” Johnson (20-0, 15 KOs) scored a third round TKO over Kevin “The Hitman” Engel (18-4, 15 KOs). Johnson dropped Engel twice in round three and referee Mark Nelson waved it off at the end of round three.

The 5’6 younger brother of boxing superstar Miguel Cotto knocked down the six-foot tall journeyman Henry in round two and dominated the fight from start to end. Time of the stoppage was 1:19.
