Even though Rosario had a good career, he never lived up to the potential I saw in him when he was starting out at 122. He became a feared slugger but never fully developed his boxing skills.

Good fighter. Great punch, beat a list of good fighters.

He got inducted into the HOF a few years ago and I was pleased with that outcome.

Like Scott said he wasn't as good as I expected to see when he blew his first 20 odd opponents away, but still a good fighter none the less.

oustanding puncher. although I agree with Scott that he never fulfilled his potential, he still had a damn good career, even if it was offset by drug use by then end of it.

The wins you listed were very good, but I wouldnt count his win over Viruet, Viruet was real past prime. however, I would add in his wins over Elizondo, Nazario, Jones, and especially Loreto Garza, which were all significantly good at the time.

Garza was coming off a great winning streak over Pazienza, Juan Martin Coggi and Frankie Warren. the fact Rosario beat the stuffing out of him like he did despite being near the end of his career is really impressive to me. one of my favorite early fight blowouts.

ATG among punchers. Would've been better had it not been for inconsistency.

Of all those wins, his one punch knock out of Edwin Viruet was most amazing to me. Viruet was as iron chinned a fighter as you are likely to come across and a great defensive boxer and all around underrated fighter. While he was past it, he was still active and it was just vicious. Perfectly set up counter right hand.

That was the end of Viruet's career apart from an ill-advised come back after some time for one fight, which he was also knocked out in strangely enough and showed just how far he had gone. He looked like a badly strung out drug addict in those last fights of his though sadly.

Apart from Duran, no one ever really beat Viruet though until the knock out by Rosario. He had only lost SDs to Sammy Goss, which I understand was a terrible decision, and to Esteban De Jesus which also could have easily gone either way. The other losses were the two to Duran and one in his 'comeback' fight which was his last fight ever to the very fine amd undefeated Alvin Hayes.

Nonetheless, it just goes to show, to me anyway, how good a puncher and fighter Rosario was at his best. Though it was many years after his fights to De Jesus, Goss, Duran etc, being knocked out so bad was pretty incredible. It was like seeing Margarito brutalised and knocked out by Mosley.

Had the pleasure to meet him when I was young.Took at least 5 boxing clinics in PR.Very good boxer awesome puncher and he always had a drug addiction from what I understood from my uncles that knew him.If it wasn't for that maybe he would've unraveled his full potential.Too bad he died young!

I really thought he'd be a lot more competitive with Chavez than he was.
