Indeya “Azucar” Rodriguez, native of New Orleans, LA, began boxing at the age of 16 at the
“Grand Prairie Police Youth Program” in Grand Prairie, TX, and developed an amateur pedigree as a
national ranked boxer from 2013 to 2020. She began in the 125 division, and eventually slimmed
down to 112, where she has fought ever since.

As well as being a nationally ranked boxer, Indeya was also invited to White House for
accolades as an amateur boxer in 2015 in the Whitehouse Champion of Change program, and was able
to meet and greet with now President Biden during that visit. During her career as an amateur boxer
she had competed during national tournaments with current undefeated professional fighters like
Tiara Brown (11-0), Amanda Pavone (8-0-1), Virginia Fuchs (1-0), and 2 time National Golden Glove
Champion Alexis Mones.

In 2020, Indeya and her coach decided to go pro, and she won her first pro bout in impressive
fashion on 2-8-2020. She silenced the home town crowd in Albuquerque, NM by knocking her
opponent down 3 times in the first round vs Leanna Martinez (4-2). Unfortunately after this bout
Covid hit and she wasn’t able to fight again til 2021.

Beginning April 9 th , 2021 Indeya has fought six times as a road warrior, and has accumulated a
record of 1-3-2 during that span fighting all of her opponents in their home town, but she hasn’t lost
faith over some questionable decisions, especially during her 3 bouts with Maryguenn Vellinga (Utah),
and questionable bouts against undefeated hometown favorites Gabriela Fundora 5-0 (California) and
Christina Cruz 2-0 (NY), whom were top amateurs before turning pro. In her last bout of 2021 she
finally received redemption by defeating Amy Salinas (NM) whom was previously (3-0) in Los Cruces,
NM by split decision over 6 rounds, which has given her hope determination that hard work will pay

In 2022, Indeya has had a record of 1-2, which included a controversial split decision loss to
Fatima Dudieva in Miami Florida, and a close rematch bout vs Amy Salinas, which was tough loss to
swallow. Lastly, Indeya showed progress as she upset previously undefeated Ashley Sciscente (5-0) to
get back on the right path.

A humble Indeya “Azucar” Rodriguez is excited to see what comes next, and is ready to take
on all challenges, but is hoping to fight closer to home in the near future to fight in front of her home
fans. The dream is still alive to become world champion, which pushes Indeya to overcome road
blocks to meeting her goals, and looks to make her mark in fly weight division in the next few years.
