The Pick

The powerful Lemieux gets the call!



-redox :

I've got Rosado winning by late stoppage.

-Froggy :

It is very safe bet somebody is getting knocked out ! Lemieux is a fellow Canadian but I would pick him to win anyhow somewhere in the middle rounds !

-StormCentre :

Should be a really good tear up. Someone's getting knocked out and/or stopped.

It seems like a lot of insiders in the sport are leaning towards Rosado in this one. It kind of reminds me of the picks coming in before the Donarie-Walters fight. I lot of insiders were picking Walters in the mild upset and well we all know how that turned out. Myself, I lean towards Rosado. Lemiuex is the kind of guy who gets gassed and discouraged if he can't get his guy out of their relatively early. He fights all out and matched against the right opponents can look destructive and sensational. But matched against someone who can take his best and keeps coming and fighting, he has trouble. Lemiuex has talked a lot about remaking his career since the losses to Rubio and Alcine in 2011. But who has he beaten? Nobody who has pushed him like he was pushed in those fights. He bombed out Guerrero whose own confidence frankly has been on thin ice since he was ko'd by Brewer. That's the fight a lot of Lemiuex supporters point to as the turning point but I am not convinced. In this sport, styles make fights. In my opinion, Lemiuex's style is perfect for Rosado. Lemiuex will come out fast and come out swinging. He will not be boxing and moving like say Jermell Charlo. Lemiuex will land but Rosado can take a good punch. And find ways to stand in there and land his own shots against a very defensively challenged Lemiuex. Rosado will fight back, keep coming and test Lemiuex's endurance and fortitiude. I see eventually Rosado breaking Lemiuex and getting a stoppage. The only caveat to me in this whether or not Rosado gets busted up early. He has a tendency to cut and if his skin breaks then we could see a Lemiuex win on cuts.
