He has a very big fan base in Blackpool, and he's a good technician, he'd beat Rabchenko IMO, Rose has done well for himself over the last 2 years, after getting sparked by Maxwell did you honestly think he'd achieve what he has, he's won the British outright and banked some decent money, very good career so far.
Yeah, I agree. Not every fighter can be a world champion and at least with Rose, you know he's going to sell plenty of tickets and be in good, competitive fights. I think he can win a European title. Rose would be a live underdog against K9, who I've never rated at all.
I certainly wouldn't mind seeing Rose in undercard fights for Froch, Bellew and Brook shows.
