Hi Neil J

By Michael Woods

Rodriguez' promoter, Joe DeGuardia, told me the other day he had preliminary discussions with all the people repping the guys who hold belts at 154, including Canelo Alvarez. I don't think Del gets a crack at Canelo, who can fry bigger fishies, or the winner of Cotto-Margarito, because he isn't with Top Rank, and Top Rank likes to do intramural bouts when possible. Del is ranked highest in the IBF, at No. 13, so maybe him against K9 Bundrage could occur. But I was happy for him for getting the win, and thought of his kid and that college fund during the bout.
