I'd prefer it to be Guerrero over Rosado. At least it's a guy who has put in "some" dues at MW before getting a title shot. Not Rosado, who's in line for a 154lb shot and needs to start forcing K9 and the IBFs hand to get things moving.
What I also don't get, is that Marty Murray has an interim WBA title fight in 10 days. Why not see if he'd be willing to fight GGG afterward? It's two months away, and he'll likely not take all that much damage against the overmatched Jorge Navarro.
Lastly, I'd prefer to see it go to Matthew Macklin. He's done a good job rebuilding himself after getting hammered out by Sergio.
