Jesse ‘Bam’ Rodriguez’s success underscored by CompuBox statistics

The latest CompuBox statistics support what we already know: Jesse “Bam” Rodriguez is a special fighter.

Rodriguez (19-0, 12 KOs) masterfully outboxed, broke down and ultimately knocked out previously unbeaten Sunny Edwards (20-1, 4 KOs) after nine rounds to unify two 112-pound titles and enhance his reputation Saturday in Glendale, Arizona.

The winner landed a remarkable 62.1% of his power shots against an opponent billed as a defensive specialist, which underscored his dominance.

CompuBox released more numbers Monday that indicate how effective the 23-year-old Texan has been against elite opponents. Here is where he stands in three key statistical categories: Plus/minus (connect percentage vs. opponents’ connect percentage), total connect percentage and power punch connect percentage.
