Edwin Rodriguez Day story

There was a detailed story on Tuesday’s Edwin Rodriguez Day celebration on 8countnews.com.

“I’m going to continue to work hard to be the best that I can be, and be a positive role model for the kids at the Boys and Girls Club and in our community” said Rodriguez to a pack[ed] house who all came to see the former amateur standout and current rising star in the super middleweight division. Rodriguez, who attempted to deflect the attention from himself was obviously not comfortable being celebrated, however he handled himself with the type of class that you’d expect from someone who has lived beyond his years. Giving deference to his wife Stephanie and crediting her for helping through what has been the most difficult year of his professional life Rodriguez accepted the accolades from the crowd with humility.
