NEW YORK – On August 24th Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing is back with the 5th installment of its popular boxing series “Punchin’ at the Paradise” at the Utopia Paradise Theater in the Bronx. The main event features Dominican Dynamo Delvin Rodriguez (20-2-1, 12KO’s) making his first ring appearance since his March 23 thrill-a-minute slugfest with Jesse Feliciano when he takes on Keenan Collins (12-2-1, 8KO’s) of Reading, PA.
No other fighter in recent memory has produced more KO highlight’s for ESPN2 then the hard-hitting Delvin Rodriguez. From knocking undefeated Allen Conyers through the ropes and onto the floor, to dropping Chris Henry—producing a spectacular KO is an art, Delvin is the DiVinci of the Masterpiece KO .
“You throw your right hand, you punch the guy, and the next thing you know he’s falling down. You feel the impact, but it’s like you just touched him and he’s down,” Delvin said in a recent interview with ESPN’s Joe Tessitore.

Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing is heading to Foxwoods Resort Casino for the March 23 installment of ESPN2 “Friday Night Fights”. The full night of action, which takes place at the state-of-the-art, fan-friendly Fox Theatre, is headlined by the return of red-hot world-rated welterweight Delvin Rodriguez (20,1,1 12 KO) who takes on Jesse “El Rayo” Feliciano (14-5-3 8 KO) for the USBA Welterweight Championship in a 12-round title bout.
Rodriguez’s most recent televised appearance was perhaps his finest hour to date. He faced his toughest challenge in Luis Hernandez for the USBA Welterweight title last May. While Hernandez extended #1 welterweight contender Paul Williams the full ten in their 2004 bout, he couldn’t even make it out of the third against Rodriguez. The normally durable Ecuadorian was floored three times en-route to an exciting third-round TKO victory for Rodriguez.
