"I am thrilled to be back in Houston with my trainer, Ronnie Shields. I had a great three weeks sparring with Chad Dawson, and came to camp in tremendous shape. Ronnie and I have been working on a game plan for our upcoming bout against Will Rosinsky. I cannot wait to show the world how much I have improved under Ronnie," said Rodriguez.
Rodriguez, already rated in the top 15 in every major sanctioning organization (IBF #5, WBC #6, WBA #8, WBO #12), is on the verge of fighting for a world championship in 2012, but he must first get by the New York-based Rosinsky. Like Rodriguez, Rosinsky was a stellar amateur, winning the New York Golden Gloves four times, as well as the 2005 United States Light Heavyweight Amateur Championship.
