Watch The War Between David Rodriguez And Darnell Wilson [VIDEO]

Last month, El Paso heavyweight boxer David “El Nino” Rodriguez suffered the first loss of his professional boxing career, when Darnell “The Ding-A-Ling Man” Wilson stopped him at the end of their 6-round fight. Rodriguez was the more active fighter and was winning the bout, but he suffered a cut over his eye in the third round that led to vision problems later in the bout. As both fighters were receiving the final ten second second warning from the timekeeper at ringside, Wilson connected with a monster left hook that knocked El Nino down for the first time in his career. Referee Lindsey Page immediately ended the fight before the final bell sounded. The heavyweight bout between Rodriguez and Wilson was not televised, however it was filmed for video with an announcing team. Last week, the fight was uploaded to YouTube. The knockout occurs at the 8:39 mark of the video.

Rodriguez suffered a fractured orbital bone as a result of the knockout punch. Although disappointed with his performance and the fight’s outcome, he told me that he plans on relaxing for the next few months and then will get into camp by April. He should be back in the ring by the summer and will continue to fight under Main Events Promotions. When asked if Rodriguez would challenge former El Paso sportscaster Lou Romano, El Nino said “bring him on.”
