The “Brawl on The Brazos” was put together by Jesse Rodriguez Promotions and the Co-Main Event of the night was between Manuel “The Punisher” Rojas (11-2, 4 KO’s) from Dallas, Texas against Chris Singleton (15-2, 7 KO’s) from Louisiana. Before the fights started, and to my amazement and the crowd, the national anthem was done by guitar, Jimmy Hendrix style and it set the stage for a great night of fights for the boxing fans in Waco Texas. The eight round title fight was for the UBO Latino Light Weight Title and NTF knew that it was going to be a war. And that is because Rojas, who is well known around the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex always comes to fight. Rojas, who has power in both hands, used them to punish Singleton with stinging left hooks to the head and the body throughout the fight.
