Peter Quillin-Gabe Rosado Finalized For October 26th

By Francisco Salazar

Peter Quillin will defend his world title belt against Gabriel Rosado on October 26th, Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer told BoxingScene.com late Saturday night.

Schaefer confirmed the rumor that had been floating around the boxing circles within the last week or so.

The Quillin-Rosado fight will take place at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ.

In his last fight on April 27th, Quillin (29-0, 21 KOs) stopped Fernando Guerrero in the seventh round at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.

Rosado (21-6, 13 KOs) lost a controversial 10 round split decision to J'Lein Love in his last fight on May 4th in Las Vegas.

The Quillin-Rosado fight will precede the 12 round light heavyweight bout between champion Bernard Hopkins and challenger Karo Murat.

Showtime will televise the card.

[QUOTE=Koba-Grozny;13753446]I'm not sure: I expect Quillin to beat Gabe, and it's gonna be a SHO card 'gainst a GBP fighter, - so Rosado knows the PTS ain't gonna be enough to do it. That said, it's Gabes 3rd fight at…

This is a good match up. I'm rooting for Rosado. I hate to see guys get robbed like he was in his last fight.
