Pawel Wolak vs. Delvin Rodriguez

Last night Pawel Wolak and Delvin Rodriguez engaged in a war on ESPN’s Friday Night Fights. A lot of the internet buzz has centered around Wolak’s swollen eye, which was the size of a baseball by the time he had finished taking his beating, but the fight was a classic that has people saying it could be the fight of the year. From The Queensberry Rules:

On the scorecards, nobody won the ESPN2 Friday Night Fights main event between Delvin Rodriguez and Pawel Wolak. But both men won plenty more with their majority draw than the average “W” on the record will give you, because their Fight of the Year candidate will earn them the undying love of fans. The biggest winners were anyone who saw this blue collar war, hyped in advance as one of 2011’s potential best — hype that turned out to be right on the money.

Since you probably missed it like I did, the entire fight is embedded below.
