Rosado has been on a roll... he is much better than his record indicates..Rosado has power and loves to trade. He's a much more competitive opponent than Fernando Guerrero or Carlos Molina would have been..But it won't seem like it after the first bell is rung. It's a shame Rosado has to be sacrificed on the alter of Golovkins' need for greater exposure...this ain't gonna end nicely for Rosado but I respect his heart.
