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.
