Full fight recap:
The official time of stoppage was one second into round 8 after the doctor ruled Rodriguez’s shoulder was too damaged to continue fighting.
Ancajas (26-1-1, 17 knockouts) of Panabo City, Philippines had landed target practice throughout much of the fight, painting Rodriguez (32-5, 19 KOs) with right jabs and left crosses as the challenger pressured the fight from the opening bell. Ancajas, who defeated McJoe Arroyo last September by unanimous decision to win the title, may have won every round despite his opponent’s aggression.
If Ancajas’ title win was his test of character, the win over Rodriguez was his showcase performance as he displayed his punch arsenal with free-flowing combinations while mixing in hard body shots, particularly with his right hook.
“It was his best performance yet,” said trainer/manager Joven Jimenez. “He improved in everything. That’s what we want [him to be], a complete fighter.”
