Juan Antonio Rodriguez makes his mark on Friday Night Fights

Tonight’s ESPN-televised show at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington, starred, well no one really.  The one world class fighter who was due to feature was Afghan Arash Usmanee, who unfortunately injured his ankle less than a week before the show and had to withdraw from the main event.  He was to have fought Mexican Juan Antonio Rodriguez, 26-4 (23), who instead took on late replacement Yenifel Vicente, 25-2-2 (17), from the Dominican Republic, at super-featherweight.  The loss of Usmanee unfortunately led to a very low-key show, but Rodriguez will not mind that as he scored a nationally televised 8-round points victory over Vicente and put his name in the mix for bigger fights.
