Sources close to Gabriel Rosado have informed BoxingScene.com that Rosado will challenge Gennady Golovkin for his IBO/WBA middleweight titles on Jan. 19.

The fight will be televised by HBO and will take place in New York.

The fight is agreed to in principle, with all monetary terms settled , but contracts have yet to be signed. Rosado will move up from 154 pounds to 160 for the fight. The other finalist for the bout was Fernando Guerrero, who lost out to Rosasdo for the big title opportunity.

Rosado (21-5, 13 KOs) and Golovkin both enjoyed breakout years in 2012. Rosado had three fights on NBC Sports Network's Fight Night series, winning each fight by stoppage. Golovkin (24-0, 21 KOs) made his debut in Sept. with a sterling knockout performance over Grzegorz Proksa.

Rosado is on the up and has been dedicated to his craft lately. I use to run into him in the clubs all the t...

ehhh not feeling this one. HBO is pushing Rosado for no apparent reason. It's more like a stay busy fight against a name for Golovkin while he waits for the other MW contenders to give him a fight

Rosado probably taking this because it won't effect his 154 rank. He is going to get drilled.

Rosado will get blasted out early despite a decent chin. More people will begin to get on the Golovkin bandwagon now that Gennady will be a regular on HBO.(Not sure how many fights he signed for, maybe 5?)

I like both fighters but Rosado is gonna get murdered. Bad career move, he's gonna give K9 an excuse not to fight him.
