Jose Alfredo Rodriguez wants shot at Chocolatito

Jose Alfredo “Torito” Rodriguez, scored an eight-round decision victory over former WBA Fedecentro Super Flyweight Champion, Edwin “Puto” Rodriguez, to win both the UBF All-Americas and Latino Super Flyweight Championships at the Sports Complex in Springfield, Virginia on Saturday.

The contest was Torito’s first professional outing in the United States and one which he was able to control with relative ease.

“Torito got some good rounds in against Rodriguez,” said Rodriguez’s manager José A. Acevedo. “This will help him brush off that ring rust. I am very happy with his performance. I knew this fight was going to go the distance, because ‘Puto’ is a good fighter. Torito is very strong though, with a bright future ahead of him.”

With Saturday’s contest marking three straight victories for Torito, his manager is keen to see him back in the ring with world class opposition.

“Next we will be looking to fight the best of the best to get Torito back on top. He wants to be champion again and he’ll fight anyone to get there. But the fight he really wants is [WBC World Super Flyweight Champion Roman] Chocolatito [Gonzalez]. That’s who we are gunning for.”
