Will Rosinsky-Brandon Gonzales Tops ESPN FNF, 4/12

By Mike Coppinger

According to super middleweight contender Will Rosinsky, he will face unbeaten Brandon Gonzales in the main event of ESPN's Friday Night Fights on April 12 in Palm Springs, Calif.

Rosinsky (17-2, 9 KOs) made his HBO debut last summer against Kelly Pavlik and gave a good account of himself in defeat in what ended up being Pavlik's final match. The Ozone Park, N.Y. based fighter got back into the win column in December with a unanimous decision victory over Otis Griffin in New York.

Gonzalez (17-0, 10 KOs) is trained by Virgil Hunter and was last seen in January when he defeated Dan Mouton via eight round decision on ESPN. Gonzales has never been past eight rounds and this fight will mark his first 10 rounder.

The two 28-year-olds fought each other in the amateurs eight years ago and Rosinsky came out on top.

Is Rosinsky still a part time firefighter? Honestly if I had to choose a career I'd stick with a firefighter then be a boxer.

Excellent. Now is Gonzales gonna bring his spare tire with him. Or is he gonna leave the pasteles outa his diet & act like he takes the sport seriously.
