World-ranked Vincente Martin Rodriguez, 36-4-1 (20), from Argentina was surprisingly stopped inside three rounds by Sergio Escobar at the Club Deportivo San Vincente in Buenos Aires, Argentina on Friday evening.
It is a huge blow to the super-featherweight contender, who was hoping to rebuild his career after being ko’d by Adrien Broner in November 2011 . Rodriguez, had previously out-pointed Escobar over six rounds in 2012.
The rematch was a different story though. After a quiet first round Escobar pounced by dropping Rodriguez three times. Before the fight was stopped in round three.
Escobar improves to 23-19-2 and scored just his eighth stoppage
