Sadly, they signed to fight Golovkin and got KOd brutally.

Yes and no. He is around the same level. But a different type of test.

Proksa was to see how he adapts to tricky styles, and beats a world class opponent. Rosado is a "chincheck" and test of endurance in a toe to toe fight.

Think he wins mid KO.

Proksa would beat Rosado. It's a step back in my opinion.

I doubt it. I do think Rosado is a better technician (and a much better foghter than his record), but I also think he has too much balls for his own good and is easy to draw into a brawl. He at least has a chance if he can keep the fight on the outside, but no chance if it turns into a war.

GGG is the smaller man by far but a pocket rocket...

I agree here. Proksa is a solid young fighter and would probably beat Rosado.

Rosado just seems more seasoned and experienced than Proksa thats why it could get interesting this Saturday.

IMO, Proksa is a better fighter. Scrappy & tough as nails.

The problem is, Proksa fought a stupid fight against Golovkin. I think GGG just scares his opponents, and throws them off their game plans, kind of like prime Tyson did. I don't think he's quite the invincible beast that many believe him to be.

I wouldn't bet on Rosado, but IMO he has a slim chance, if he sticks to his game plan & fights with confidence. He is smart / skilled enough to stay outside & box. Work rate will also matter: You have to constantly jab Golovkin, to keep him from taking a bead on your head. Proksa took it waaay too easy. He didn't pressure GGG at all, and paid the price.

Is the jury still out on GGG's chin??
(The glass insults will be by the tons)

I hope Rosado can at least give a clue on Golovkin's resistance.

Golov. vs Macklin or Barker would be some good tests for Golovkin to see how good he's.

Also I'm agree that Chavez jr vs Golovkin would be one the best fights from MW that can be made right now, aside Martinez vs Golovkin.

Proksa is a better fighter than Rosado. Too bad that nobody don't want to fight Golovkin and are lots of fighters at MW.

Rosado vs Proksa is a good fight, never thought of it.

Rather just see Rosado stay at 154 though.

anyways, i have no reason to think rosado is all that better then Proksa. I guess we will see come fight time.
