EMMANUEL RODRIGUEZ FACES ELICER AQUINO

Undefeated bantamweight prospect Emmanuel Rodriguez (13-0, 9 KOs) will be tested by Elicer Aquino (17-1-1, 11 KOs) on Premier Boxing Champions (PBC)on ESPN Wednesday, November 25 from Hialeah Park Racing & Casino in Miami.
 
Televised coverage begins at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT and is headlined by super welterweight world champion Erislandy "The American Dream" Lara (21-2-2, 12 KOs) defending his title against former world champion Jan Zaveck (35-3, 19 KOs).
 
Undercard action continues with a pair of 10-round contests as Daquan Arnett (14-1, 8 KOs) takes on Yudel Jhonson (17-2, 9 KOs) in a super welterweight showdown while undefeated heavyweight Wes Nofire (18-0, 14 KOs) goes up against Cuba's Yasmany Consuegra (17-2, 14 KOs).
 
Also entering the ring, in an eight-round lightweight contest, is 23-year-old Brooklyn-native Dennis Galarza (10-1, 7 KOs) who takes on 27-year-old Mexican brawler Hugo Partida (26-6-2, 16 KOs) while undefeated 20-year-old Chicago-product Jose Quezada (8-0, 5 KOs) faces Tennessee's Donnell Logan (11-18-2, 6 KOs) in a six-round super lightweight affair.
 
Rounding out the night of fights is 26-year-old Jeff Souffrant (1-1) of Fort Lauderdale, Florida in a four round welterweight bout against Miami's Gregory Moore (1-0) and Puerto Rican super welterweight Alex De Jesus (21-1, 13 KOs) in a six-round bout.
 
At just 23-years-old, Rodriguez has been on a fast track towards a world title fight since turning pro in 2012. On November 25 he makes his U.S. debut after taking down Gabor Molnar, Luis Hinojosa and Alex Rangel in 2015. The Manati, Puerto Rico-born fighter will bring his exciting style into the ring against his toughest test to date when he fights on November 25.
 
Undefeated in his first 18 pro fights, Aquino looks to bounce back from a narrow majority decision loss to undefeated Adam Lopez in his last outing. The 28-year-old hadn't gone the distance since 2012 before his last bout, having stopped seven of his previous eight opponents. Born in Higuey, Dominican Republic, he will be fighting in the U.S. for the second time as a professional.
