'Kid Blast' to Face Rodriguez


Cuban super featherweight sensation Rances "Kid Blast" Barthelemy will face dangerous spoiler Alejandro "Soma" Rodriguez (14-6, 7 KOs) of Guadalajara, Mexico, in the co-main event of Warriors Boxing Promotions’ "Miami Warfare II" event on Saturday, August 18, at the MACC at the Doubletree Hotel in Miami, Florida.

26-year-old Barthelemy, brother of Olympic medalist Yan and rated #8 in the world by the IBF, has been particularly impressive of late. He won a clear decision over then-undefeated and highly touted amateur Hylon Williams Jr. on national television and followed it up with a dominant performance against always-tough Robert Osiobe last May.

24-year-old Rodriguez, however, is no stranger to elite competition. "Soma", as he is known, has been in with many of today’s hottest prospects and taken the 0’s of a few undefeated fighters. He will be looking to do it again against Barthelemy.    

Miami Warfare II will also feature an exciting junior-welterweight main event between Miami, Florida’s (via Colombia) Breidis Prescott (25-4, 18 KOs) and well-known contender Francisco "Gato" Figueroa (20-4-1, 13 KOs) of Bronx, New York.

"We brought up the level of competition for Rances last year and he’s continued to impress," said event promoter Leon Margules of Warriors Boxing. "More so than blasting out the opponents you face early in your career, these fights against solid veterans like Rodriguez are what determine if you belong among the best. And so far, Rances has given no indication he’s anything but a future world champion."

Also scheduled for action that night will be a host of local and international prospects and contenders including super middleweight Roberto J. Acevedo 5-0 (3 KOs) of Bayamón, Puerto Rico, in a four-rounder vs. TBA; light heavyweight bomber Vilier Quinonez 3-0 (2 KOs) of Cienfuegos, Cuba, who will fight a six-rounder vs. TBA; undefeated light heavyweight Yunieski Gonzalez (8-0, 5 KOs) of Havana, Cuba, who will fight a six-rounder vs. TBA; and middleweight Leosvy Mayedo (2-0, 2 KOs) of Miami, who will fight a four-rounder vs. TBA.

Tickets are priced at $75 ringside/$30 general admission. A limited number of VIP tables are also available. Please call (954) 985-1155 or (786) 553-3895 to purchase tickets.

On fight night, doors open 6:30 and the action starts 7:30. The MACC at the Doubletree Hotel is located at 711 NW 72nd Avenue in Miami.
