A Week in Will’s World Part 1
Dear Friends, Fans and Members of the Media,
As I’m preparing myself for my December 19 showdown against tough contender Otis Griffin, I must admit, there’s always a lot of things on my mind. Those who know me best are aware of my commitment outside of the squared circle as a full time emergency medical technician (EMT) in one of the roughest areas in Brooklyn, NY. During my amateur and professional boxing career, I’ve seen a lot of unbelievable things, but it can’t compare to what my eyes have witnessed during my regular job.
Last week, I had to transport a 2 month baby to the hospital because her father accidentally punched the back of her head while he attempted to hit the mother. Accident or not, this was very difficult to deal with and I truly felt terrible about the situation. I can’t even fathom how traumatic that is for an infant in that environment. My unit had to assist with an emotionally disturbed person (EDP), where a family member called for emergency guidance with somebody acted violently. In situations like these, EMS and NYPD personnel work together to get the patient the care they need.
On Thanksgiving Day, we had a young man, early to mid-40's, in cardiac arrest who was in a car accident. We don't know if he went into arrest before or after the crash, all we know is that his heart was not beating. There's no way to tell in the moment but everyone did what we could to help. Sadly, the young man passed away. It’s moments like these, where I witness some of the worst tragedies firsthand, that make me realize how blessed I am to do what I love; box and help others.   
Every day before work, I spend a few hours in the gym preparing for my fight against Otis Griffin. Admittedly, it’s tiring at times to juggle working full time and training for world-class opponents, but I guess my willpower gets me through it (no pun intended). Whether it’s Griffin, Pavlik, Rodriguez or an opponent I’m expect to defeat by an early knockout, I get ready for every fighter as if they’re a world champion.
The most important thing is trying to keep my mind focused on the immediate task and I have a simple formula. When I'm at work,
I work and keep boxing in the back of my mind. While I'm training, my focus is fully on boxing and not the crazy situations I may see later that day.
In some instances, like the Aaron Pryor Jr. fight right into the Kelly Pavlik bout, my captain allowed me to take a lot of my own time. I was able to focus fully on boxing. While I don't always have the time to take off, I have to adapt. Each morning at 8 AM, I go to the boxing gym or work on strength and conditioning. I have alternating days for both gyms. In some cases, if good sparring is available for certain days, I work it out according.
Either way, I'm grinding at least 6 days a week and that’s what I’m becoming used to.
On December 19, I'm looking forward putting on a great show and plan to provide you with an early Christmas gift; a victory. With that said, I never take fights because it’s an easy win but because it’s a challenge. Griffin’s team made many inquiries about fighting me and I’ll make him regret that. We’ll call it “Seasons Beatings”. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone on fight night.
Will “Power” Rosinsky
16-2 (9 KO’s)

NEW YORK - Undefeated heavyweight Bryant Jennings (15-0, 7 KO's) will be featured in Fight Night 36: Bryant Jennings, premiering Thursday, December 6 at 10:00 p.m. ET on the NBC Sports Network.

The half hour special chronicles 36-hours in the life of the North Philadelphia boxer, as he prepares to face Bowie Tupou (22-2, 16 KO's) in a voluntary defense of his USBA Heavyweight Title. The show tracks Jennings from the apartment he shares with his grandmother, to his sunrise training session, to his day job at the Federal Reserve Bank.

During the episode, NBC Sports Network cameras travel with Jennings for a grueling workout at the no-frills ABC Gym. In addition, the crew follows Jennings as he spends time with his son Mason, and takes an emotional trip to the bullet-strewn Philadelphia neighborhood from which Jennings emerged.

Fight Night 36: Bryant Jennings includes commentary from veteran trainer Fred Jenkins, and Philadelphia legend Marvin "Machine Gun" Garris. The show also captures Jennings, as he reflects on his upcoming opponent and the unique journey that got Jennings this point in his career.

"Compelling, story-driven programming is a staple of our network and the 36 Series." said Jon Miller, President, Programming, NBC Sports and NBC Sports Network. "Bryant Jennings' talent and his incredible story make for a very captivating Fight Night 36 special."

"Bryant Jennings is the first real star to be developed entirely on NBC Sports Network's Fight Night series," said Kathy Duva, Main Events CEO. "He appeared in the main event, on our first broadcast in January, and he will close the year for us on Saturday. Jennings has stepped up time after time and used the series as a platform from which to launch his career. So it is a natural progression that he should now get the chance to tell us more about his very interesting story on Fight Night 36."

Jennings Fight Night match with Tupou will air Saturday, December 8 at 10 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network. Kenny Rice will serve as the play-by-play commentator for the telecast, and will be joined by Hall-of-Fame boxing trainer Freddie Roach and cruiserweight contender B.J. Flores. Chris Mannix will serve as the ringside reporter.

Following are re-airs of Fight Night 36: Bryant Jennings: Dec., 7 at 12:30 a.m., Dec., 8 at 4:30 p.m., Dec., 9 at 4 p.m., Dec., 13 at 8:30 p.m., and Dec., 25 at 1:30 a.m. All times are ET.

Preview video:


SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO- The winning fighter at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas will be awarded an exclusively crafted and elaborately refined rendition of the WBO Championship motif.

“This Champion of the Decade belt is a work of art”, Francisco “Paco” Valcarcel, WBO President, said. “It’s a magnificent job by Master Craftsmen Ardash Sahaghian and Edward Majian who once more have demonstrated their unsurpassable creativity and originality”.

With perfectly detailed contours and a hand polished mirror finish, the winner takes home a truly one-of-a-kind trophy, to mark his aggregate contribution to the sport of boxing and the World Boxing Organization.

“Every crevice of this belt has been carefully finished, and the results, I think, speak for themselves,” Edward S. Majian, President of SARTONK, stated, before reflecting: “Some purists criticize belts. But ours is the perspective of the craftsman. Our work aspires towards perfection, and we put every ounce of ourselves into that aspiration. What you see in this belt is devotion to boxing. And don’t the fighters deserve that? When the moments are long-gone, this belt will immortalize the time these men met to put themselves on the line and gave their fans one more epic bout”.

President Valcarcel will travel tomorrow, Wednesday, December 5th, to Las Vegas to attend the Weigh-In, and to attend the historic fourth bout between the two great Super Champions and future Hall of Famers, Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez. The belt will be unveiled tomorrow during the press conference for Pacquiao-Marquez 4.
