Only 19 years old, Julian has been fighting as a pro for seven months. A sensational prospect at 140 pounds, he is a former amateur standout – he was a gold medalist at the 2013 National Golden Gloves Championships, and a silver medalist at the 2012 National PAL Championships and the 2012 U.S. National Championships.
Julian is coming off a first-round knockout win against Nyein Muang in his last fight on January 25.
Fightnews.com’s Mariano A. Agmi reported from ringside [excerpts]: Julian "Hammer Hands" Rodriguez wasted no time in dispatching Nyein Muang in round one of a junior welterweight contest. Rodriguez stunned and almost dropped Muang with a right to the head early in the round. Sensing that his opponent was hurt, the Jersey native jumped all over Muang, landing stinging uppercuts, a right hand that sent Muang reeling and finally a right and left hook to the liver that dropped the bloody Muang to the canvas, where he stayed for the full count in obvious pain. Referee Michael Ortega counted him out at 1:51 of round one. [End Agmi item]
