Back on July 15, in a main event fight for ESPN Friday Night Fights, Pawel Wolak and Delvin Rodriguez went toe-to-toe in one of the best fights of 2011. Tonight, they hook it up again, kicking off the Cotto vs Margarito pay-per-view with what promises to be another excellent fight.
Odds are sort of irrelevant for this type of fight, but the books are giving the slight nod to Wolak, the more popular fighter of the two, and the one more likely to feel at "home" at Madison Square Garden, with a large Polish fan presence expected.

Wolak (29-1-1, 19 KO) and Rodriguez (25-5-3, 14 KO) both looked to be in good shape this week at their media days, and yesterday at the weigh-in. Will this be another all-out war? Will someone have to fight with one eye again? It just might be the best fight of an excellent Saturday in boxing.
