The 22-year-old Madueño, who hails from Guasave, Sinaloa, Mexico, is coming off his most impressive victory, a tenth round TKO against Sonny Fredrickson (21-5, 14 KOs). That fight just took place at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, FL, on September 14, 20201. Fresh off the win, Madueño is excited to be right back in the ring.
“It feels great to be so active after only fighting a couple of times last year,” said Madueño. “This will be my fourth fight of 2021 and I want to make it a memorable outing. I want to take the momentum from my fight with Fredrickson into this bout. Rodriguez is a worthy opponent who has gone the distance with a lot of good fighters. I want to stop him and send a message to the entire lightweight division.”
“This will be our first show back at the Doubletree in Ontario and we are excited to see all our loyal fans in attendance” said promoter Ken Thompson. “This will be an action-packed card filled with competitive fights from top to bottom. Fans our encouraged to get their tickets now as we anticipate another sold out show.”
