Edwin-Rodriguez

LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT CONTENDER EDWIN RODRIGUEZ BATTLES UNDEFEATED MICHAEL SEALS LIVE ON NOV. 13 EDITION OF PREMIER BOXING CHAMPIONS ON SPIKE

FROM BEAU RIVAGE RESORT & CASINO IN BILOXI

9 P.M. ET/PT

BILOXI, Miss. (October 1, 2015) – Light heavyweight contender Edwin “La Bomba” Rodriguez (27-1, 18 KOs) will take on undefeated Michael Seals (19-0, 14 KOs) Friday, Nov. 13 on Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) on Spike live from MGM Resorts International's beautiful Beau Rivage Resort & Casino on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Televised coverage will begin at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

“This is a huge opportunity for me to clearly cement myself as one of the best 175-pounders in all of boxing,” said Rodriguez. “Michael Seals is coming to fight and I know what a win means for him and his career. That being said, this is going to be my night. George Bernard Shaw once said that, 'life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.' This victory is a major piece of the puzzle I've created for my life. A win on Nov. 13 moves me a major step closer to challenging for a piece of the light heavyweight crown, and there's nothing and no one that will get in my way of achieving that.”

“I'd like to thank all parties involved for making this fight a reality,” said Seals. “I've remained focused mentally and in my training to make sure that I was completely prepared for my opportunity when the time came. I have a strong base and have been blessed with a chance to show the world my talents. I will be ready to go when the bell rings on Nov.13.”

Tickets for the event, which is promoted by DiBella Entertainment, are priced at $62.95, $48.95, $34.95 and $20.95, plus tax and service charges. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at the Beau Rivage Theatre box office, www.ticketmaster.com or by calling Ticketmaster at (800) 745-3000.

“Edwin Rodriguez is clearly one of the best 175-pounders in the world, and I am glad that he is getting a match-up of this caliber and an opportunity to showcase himself against a truly tough test in the highly regarded and undefeated prospect Michael Seals,” said Lou DiBella, President of DiBella Entertainment. “The winner of this bout should be in line for a shot against Adonis Stevenson, or any of the other champions in the light heavyweight division, and we expect a spectacular performance from both guys when they meet November 13.”

“The light heavyweight division has become one of the most compelling division in boxing,” said Jon Slusser, Senior Vice President, Sports and Specials, Spike. “Spike is excited to have two of the rising stars in this weight class, Rodriguez and Seals, battle it out.”

“MGM Resorts International is home to the best boxing events in the world,” said Beau Rivage Executive Director of Entertainment Anthony Gibson. “I've watched a lot of boxing in the last 40 years and DiBella Entertainment's events at Beau Rivage are some of the best I've seen. The theatre, the ring, the boxers and atmosphere are always first-class.”

An accomplished amateur who won a 2006 National Golden Gloves gold medal and a 2005 U.S. National Championship gold medal, the 30-year-old Rodriguez enters this fight as the winner of his last three. Born in the Dominican Republic but fighting out of Worcester, Mass., Rodriguez's lone loss came to undefeated Andre Ward in 2013 and he owns victories over previously undefeated fighters Will Rosinsky, Jason Escalera and Ezequiel Osvaldo Maderna. Most recently he stopped previously unbeaten Craig Baker in the third round on a May PBC card.

Undefeated and fighting out of Atlanta, Georgia, Seals looks to make a mark on Nov. 13 when he faces his toughest competition to date. The 33-year-old played college football at the University of Alabama A&M before getting his start in boxing and turning pro in 2008. In 2012 he stopped the experienced Byron Mitchell in round one and has added five victories to his record since then including a March victory over Carlos Reyes.

This press release seems interesting. ERod is back and he is fighting an undefeated guy. Sounds good. Ok,so I might want to catch this PBC show. Let's see. The undefeated guy is Mike Seals and according to this press release he is undefeated at 19-0 with 14 via KO. Looks impressive. This press release says: the winner of this fight should be in line to fight Adonis chickenson. Hmmm? Is ERod in the top 10 anywhere? Boxrec says he is not top 10, but ERod is at 14. Ok , maybe ERod will be cherry picked to fight Chickenson. But at least ERod is fighting a live guy in Seals. Uh oh. It says on boxrec that seals is not in the top 20 or 30, but is ranked at 42. That is not cool. But getting back to the press release ,it says that sweet Lou Dibella says Seals is highly regarded, and Seals stopped the experienced Mitchell in one. He has added 5 victories since then. So maybe Seals deserves the chance, but wait. When he stopped Mitchell, it was already after Mitchell was knocked out 8 other times before Seals joined the club. At least he won his last 5,but wait. Let's see the truth about a his last 5 fights. Seals last 5 fights: In his last fight he fought at a racetrack against a guy with a record of 7-5 record . The guy has been stopped in almost every loss,so the fact that he went the full 6 against Seals doesn't make Seals look like a power puncher. The fight before that he fought at a lodge in North Dakota against a guy with a record of 13-12. Seals stopped him at least. The fight before that one was in a ballroom in Georgia, against a guy with a record of 26-30. He stopped that guy. That opponent improved his record to 26-32, 28 of those 32 losses were via knock out. It can't get any worse, can it? The fight before that, Seals fought a assumed boxer with a record of 9-30. The assumed boxer improved his record since fighting seals to 10-42. So it can get worse,but can it get worse? Yes it can! The next guy he fought had a record of 1-16. Yes 1-16 folks. This disaster happened some where in Kentucky. Since that fight this imposter has improved his record to 1-22. So this press release, sweet Lou Dibella, PBC boxing is really bad for boxing. A tune up fight is one thing but fighting the King of Tomato Cans and telling us it's a good fight is disgusting. Terrible!

I weigh 178 but my absolute best athletic weight is about 175... I should turn in my form and take my physical, fight 7 bums with records of 4-30 and then I will probably be in line for an Adonis fight........... What am I waiting for???? I am not even kidding.

You can actually do it. Sweet Lou Dibella can line up those bums ,tell the public you are a worthy challenger, then throw you to one of his prospects/champs. You can get a sweet payday.
