An article in the Worcester (MA) Telegram indicates and ESPN’s online boxing event schedule confirms rumors that have been swirling on the internet, as Bud Barth reports that a Shobox card will be telecast from Scheels Arena (formerly the UP Center) in Fargo, North Dakota on November 5th. According to Barth and the Telegram, 16-0 prospect Edwin Rodriguez, a Worcester native, will meet 22-2-1 James McGirt Jr in the main event.
There’s still no confirmation of the companion rumor that Marcus Johnson would appear on the same card with Rodriguez. Minnesota’s own Andy Kolle has revealed on Facebook that he will also be appearing.
An official announcement is expected soon.
