Jomar Fajardo (14-5-2, 7) Vs Francisco Rodriguez Jr (16-2-1, 11)
Last year began as a break out year for Mexican fighter Francisco Rodriguez Jr who stopped Merlito Sabillo in March to announce himself as a world class fighter and claim the WBO Minimumweight title. A few months later Rodriguez became a unified world champion as he beat Katsunari Takayama to claim the IBF Minimumweight title. What began as Fighter of the Year campaign was derailed in November when Rodriguez was held to an unexpected draw by the unheralded Jomar Fajardo of the Philippines. To begin 2015 then men battled for a second time with a potential WBO Light Flyweight title fight on the line.
