The fight is not done, but Golden Boy Promotions is attempting to finalize a junior middleweight fight between undefeated rising contender Jermell Charlo (22-0, 11KOs) and tough veteran Gabe Rosado (21-7, 13KOs).

Charlo has been rising in the ranks with wins over Denis Doughlin, Harry Joe Yorgey and Demetrius Hopkins. Rosado is 0-2-1 in his last three fights, but all of them were very competitive efforts against three middleweights - WBA/IBO champion Gennady Golovkin, which ended by a KO in seven, J'Leon Love was turned to a no decision when Love tested positive for a banned substance, and last month Rosado was stopped in ten, due to a severe cut above his eye, by WBO champion Peter Quillin.

If the fight gets done, it will land on undercard to the junior welterweight main event between IBF champion Lamont Peterson and mandatory challenger Dierry Jean, which takes place on January 25th at the DC Armory in Washington. Showtime will televise both fights.

Surely Charlo is thought to win this right? He's GB prized prospect they wouldn't throw him in there with someone they think can beat him. not this early in his career

Rosado is nothing but a stepping stone.

[QUOTE=King-]Good fight to see where Charlo is at and if he could be a contender. I still wish we can get a Roado-Quillin rematch, though[/QUOTE] Him beating Charlo will help because he'll finally get a win.... but a loss is pretty much a nail in the coffin

rosado will be used as a gatekeeper but hes just recently made boxing his full time job people forget that and his body is adjusted to 160 now .. so him being used as a gatekeeper will end up hurting gbp as i can see him winning 3 solid fights in a row and the quillin rematch made before either...
