Ceferino Rodríguez
World shot next stop?
Gran Canaria’s Ceferino Rodríguez became the first Canarian boxer to successfully defend an EBU-EU crown, with a unanimous points win over challenger Daniel Rasilla before Christmas.


World shot next stop?

line
05.01.2014 - Rodríguez took the welterweight belt for the first time back in October in Italy, courtesy of a technical knock-out over Stefano Castelucci, but was given a much harder time on this occasion by the experienced Rasilla, who was fighting in front of a partisan crowd in his home town of Maliaño in Santander. 

However, the 25-year-old Las Palmas boxer proved more than up to the task and cemented his reputation as a potential world title challenger in the coming year, an opportunity his trainer Carlos Formento fully expects to materialise sooner rather than later.
