Gabriel Rosado, Are You On The Downside?

Point blank, Gabriel Rosado is on a losing streak, or, at least, according to BoxRec.

He hasn't won in his last four outings, having lost to Gennady Golovkin, J'Leon Love, PeterQuillin and Jermell Charlo. But in fact, in his last fight, Rosado had his hand raised, via KO, as he bettered rawhide-tough Brian Vera in a Big Knuckle Boxing (BKB) scrap this past August.

Overall, though, it has to be considered that just maybe the 28-year-old North Philly guy has seen better days, that his skills might have been dimmed by time, punishment, age, and the effects on the pysche that come from not winning. I posed the question, could it be possible that he is, indeed, on a slide, in an interview which is running on Boxing Channel.

Check it out, and then weigh in, in our Forum, on the Gabriel Rosado-David Lemieux main event which will unfold Dec. 6, at Barclays Center in the center of the universe (cough cough, I'm being knowingly self-referential and dee-baggy lol), Brooklyn, and on HBO.

GGG obviously busted Gabe up but he took it far better than Proska Macklin and Rubio to name a few.... Charlo put on a masterful albeit pain free clinic as his glided effortlessly around the ring using every square inch available while exploiting each opportunity to counter, lead and score from every conceivable position during an unspectacular yet dominant a one sided tiff. He was robbed against the diuretic using Love and had a compelling run against the hard hitting yet less fluid Quillin until his face broke down like tissue paper. But he did relieve the tough Texan ...Brian Vera of his consciousness... You don't see that every day He could very well do the same to the newly manufactured Lemieux if his skin holds up. But Lemieux can come in gung-ho and blow Gabe right out of the water if he's not fully alert and properly prepared. This is a good matchup. Its good to see Gabe is still getting work even if he's labeled the B side.

I like Gabe too. But - being critical at, and mindful of, top level boxing - I think Gabe has some issues that need addressing. BS, you stole my thunder with Charlo there. Charlo is probably a good contender at this stage, and that fight between Charlo and Rosado showed where Gabe is at. One one hand; Gabe is too musclebound and (as an amateur) inexperienced to be moved too fast in my opinion. Then on the other hand; contrasting with that is his discipline, durability, willingness and mentality; that seems to say "let's do it now, I'll get paid to learn on the job". It's an interesting, if not unique, pugilistic experiment, as the latter often constitutes essential qualities some really skilled boxers can't access - whilst the former (and all I infer with it) is almost absolutely essential if you are to make it to the top, stay there for a while and retire with all your faculties in tact- unless, of course, you're B-Hop - who seems to be Gabe's idol and mentor. Gabe's win over Vera in that "fight" was good for him, and I think that explains where he's at right now. Rosado is a very tough "fighter" learning on the job. However, when he runs into a very tough boxer that can also fight; unless he has made up for the above-mentioned deficits, I fear he will be seriously busted up. Very few tough "fighters" make it to the top and stay there long enough to make it worthwhile without a decent amateur background and/or defence. Especially in the middleweights where you can run into guys that hit has hard as heavyweights and almost as fast as welterweights.
