NJ native 'Hammer Hands' making waves in boxing world

Julian Rodriguez started boxing training with his father as a 7-year-old in Paterson. He turned pro three years ago at age 18 and hasn't lost a match since, going 13-0.



Rodriguez, better known to boxing fans as "Hammer Hands," still trains with his dad, Alex Devia, to this day.



Rodriguez's style caught the attention of Manny Pacquiao, who taught him how to take his preparation to the next level.



Rodriguez is hoping for a shot at the light welterweight title as soon as next year.
