Boxer David “El Nino” Rodriguez KO’s Owen Beck [Video/Gallery/Audio]
On Friday June 24th The Monster was ringside for the David “El Nino” Rodriguez/ Owen “What the heck Beck” fight at the Don Haskins Center. Most experts thought that this fight would be a major test for Rodriguez, as they predicted that the fight might even go the full 10 rounds. But David proved the experts wrong as he scored a 3rd round knockout with a tremendous left hook. The punch was so hard that Beck was down on the canvas for about 10 minutes. Thankfully he recovered and was able to get up. With the victory Rodriguez became the WBC FECOMBOX Heavyweight Champion and is now ranked in the top 10 in the world rankings.
