another line move from Wolak -175 to Wolak -140
Went to the press conference with Wolak today he is pumped and ready.  Promises even more pressure then the 1st fight.

Agree.  Delvin suprised me in the first fight, and I'm not sure what Wolak can do differently this time around.  More pressure means more punishment as he comes walking in.  Delvin showed he can handle the pressure. 

I like a few dogs on Saturday.  Delvin, Margarito, and Moreno on the SHO card.

I disagree with you guys and think Wolak will stop Rodriguez or win a decision by 3-4 rounds.

Wolak told me that this is the first time in his career that he made the weight week before the fight.  He is very fit and ready for this one.  Very hungry to show that. 
Please remember that he was winning the fight (5-1) before his eye blew up. 
In my opinion Delvin had enough and it was a matter of time before he would go down.

Also-Big factor.   Fight 1 was promoted by Joe DeGuardia (Delvins promoter)
This one is on Top Rank card (Wolak)
Anything close will go to WOLAK!.

As you know i am obviously involved with Wolak so i wont be rooting against him.
Danno-you should of hit me up few days ago.  I had extra tickets

As we all know money talks-  There is more money invested with Wolak then Delvin. 
Signed with Top Rank and Cameron Dunkin

Top Rank is very happy with Wolak who brings in some tickets sales.  (sold over $40K in tickets for this one)

Thanks.  Appreciate the thought.

I took a flyer on Murray just now.  Rios looked awful.  Has to weigh in at 9am too (less than 147).  Took a shot at +1000.

lucky: hate to be a pain and repetitive, i know i mentioned something before and we don't talk much but if you ever have extra tickets in the tri-state let me know. im in nyc and can meet you. i believe i asked in the past but my brother in laws in construction and he contracted out a few guys who were close to people in i believe wolak's camp. the guy i used to work withs name is bartek he used works under an italian guy named will f and he lives out in bayonne, any shot you know him?

Good research, but what's your source?

Danno I read the same on boxingscene
The title and fight is in danger because of The weight issue. I am sure they will make a deal but this is not good for Rios. I am pretty sure he still wins but +1000 is worth taking

I like Rodriguez in this one, thought he won the first fight.

More pressure from Wolak who needs to be inside to do anything, doesn't make it better for him unless Rodriguez is tanking or Not mentally there.

Rodriguez is a much better counter puncher, if he selects to use the UPPER CUT while Wolak is coming in, he could win rather easily since Wolak has no plan B.

Although Rodriguez is a good enough BOXER to win easily, history has shown he is willing to trade even when he doesn't have to which is what keeps Wolak very dangerous.


I believe Rodriguez should be favored like -140 or so, Wolak's eye will be an issue again so wouldn't be surprised to see the fight end due to injury in about the late 10th round.

Just a side note, awesome card on showtime to go along with this fight. I like King Kong to slightly edge out Mares in a decent action fight.

Good luck to all!  MY favorite play is Rodriguez usually favors counter punchers in rematches!
