Gabe Rosado vs. Glen Tapia - Golden Boy on ESPN, October 19

Gabriel "King" Rosado (23-11, 13 KOs) and Glen "Jersey Boy" Tapia (23-4, 15 KOs) are set to collide in a battle between two experienced middleweights in the 10-round main event of the October 19 edition of Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN at Park Theater at Monte Carlo Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. The ESPN 3 livestream of the undercard bouts begins at approximately 6:30 p.m. PT/9:30 p.m. ET. The ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes transmission will begin at 8:00 p.m. PT/11:00 p.m. ET.
 
Rosado is a native of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania known for his willingness to fight anyone and anywhere. The 31-year-old has taken on a who's who of middleweight champions and contenders, including unified middleweight champion Gennady "GGG" Golovkin, former IBF middleweight titlist David Lemieux and former WBO 160-pound champion Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin. Rosado will look to get another chance at the middleweight rankings against a dangerous opponent with power in both hands.
 
Tapia, of Passaic, New Jersey, has also faced top competitors in two divisions, including tough fights against James "Mandingo Warrior" Kirkland, David Lemieux and Jason "El Animal" Quigley. Both men are eager for another defining win in their careers, which promises for an exciting battle with years of hard work on the line.

1. Why is this fight not on the eastcoast? Horrible promoting. A philly rican and a NJ dominican fighting on the westcoast? 2. This should be an undercard co-main event not a main event I think Rosado wins he can…
