Both main event fighters share similar backgrounds and styles both having won U.S. National Amateur Championships in 2005, Rodriguez at 165 pounds and Rosinsky at 178 pounds.
Rosinsky is four months older than the 26-year-old Rodriguez, who turned pro seven months before Rosinsky. They had about the same number of amateur fights and have trained together, even rooming on one international trip to China.
The fight will mark Rodriguez’s third time on SHOWTIME and second main event.
