2016 Boxing Globe Boxer to Watch: Saul Rodriguez


Kid Dinamita aka Saul Rodriguez has had some setbacks in his career, but this is his year to shine. In his last fight, he showed the world that he had one hit combo knocking out his opponent Ivån Najera in such impressive fashion it was ruled around the internet as the knockout of the year. Watch it below.

Saul Rodriguez is the truth! And he is our boxer to watch for in 2016.

Rodriguez joins our elite list of boxers to watch over the last 3 years including,

2013 Boxer to Watch Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr.

2014 Boxer to Watch Terence Crawford
2015 Boxer to Watch Keith Thurman
2016 Boxer to Watch Saul Rodriguez

Remember that this is who we think will have a major year in the upcoming year, and we have had some huge success with this besides our 2013 pick as we thought the major Pacquiao vs Mayweather fight was going to finally happen. We were just a little early….

Now for our prediction, Saul Rodriguez. Rodriguez is 19-0-1 with 14 powerful knockouts, and he is just 22 years old. The future is in the fists of this young slugger. He is trained by Robert Garcia, who had this to say about the young gun, “He’s the Real Deal,” Garcia said. “He’s the next big thing out of our gym.”

If you can find a boxer with more potential heading into 2016, bring him forward because our staff has voted and we all agree our boxer to watch in 2016 is Saul Rodriguez. Congrats to Kid Dinamita.
