On June 4, 2016 King Gabriel Rosado continued his revival in Los Angeles by winning a close 10 round unanimous decision over Mexico’s Antonio Gutierrez (20-2-1, 9 ko’s) at the StubHub Center .
In typical fashion for the North Philly native, many are saying this bout was a hard-fought war, one where Rosado (23-9, 13 ko’s) had to get off the canvas in round 4 to secure his victory. Final scores were 96-96, 95-94 & 95-94.
This is Rosado’s second straight win with former world champion Fernando Vargas as his trainer. The wins over solid competition are beginning to put the “King’s” cold streak from 2013 – 2015 in the rear view mirror.
Speculation is that this W will get Rosado back on prime TV against a big name. A jump to the 168 pound division has also been mentioned as a possibility.
