15 July 2011 - New York City, New York, United States
In a good action super-welterweight showdown, “Raging Bull” Pawel Wolak, 29 years-old, and Delvin Rodriguez, 31 yars-old from Dominican Republic, battled to a majority draw after 10 contested rounds at the Roseland Ballroom.
A grotesque swelling above Polish-American Wolak’s right eye did not disrupt his relentless pressure.
The official scoring: 97-93 (Tom Schreck) for Rodriguez and two 95-95 even (Julie Lederman and Steve Weisfeld). Referee was Steve Smoger.
Wolak, rated WBO #3, WBA #6, IBF #8, is now 29-1-1 (19). Rodriguez, at his first 154-lbs fight, is now 25-5-3 (14).

PAWEL WOLAK, DELVIN RODRIGUEZ BATTLE TO DRAW
Pawel Wolak fought the second-half of his bout with Delvin Rodriguez nearly blind, with a grotesque hematoma over his right eye. The injury was so obscene- the right side of his head was misshapen- that it evoked memories of Hasim Rahman’s monstrous injury from a head butt against Evander Holyfield. Wolak and Rodriguez battled to a 10-round majority draw at the Roseland Ballroom in Manhattan on ESPN’s Friday Night Fights.
