If Rosado can try and box from the outside, maintaining his distance he will be more of a challenge. But Rosado likes to get in there and mix it up, and when he does it will favor GGG. Rosado needs to box intelligently.

the only real challanges to GG are Chavez Jr, Martinez and maybe Pirog

Hard to say.

Proska is the more unorthodox and athletic of the two, but his technique is often poor and he's often off balance and vulnerable to counterpunching.

Rosado is probably the more polished of the two, yet he also appears more than willing to stand and exchange. Trading with GGG in the center of the ring is to court disaster.

Am I convinced that GGG is the greatest thing since sliced bread? No, but I do think he's an efficient power puncher who likely stop Rosado inside of 7.

I rewatched GGG - proksa fight. Well, proksa looked good, but he made a fatal mistake in the 4 round, he decided to stay on the ropes, took some bodyshots, then he started to backing up while his hands were down and took 2 big punches to the head, it was plain stupid... So, i think its possible to beat golovkin, you need just jab, legs and focus.

Which is basically the same exact mistake Rosado made in round 2 against Angulo.

I think so, Rosado doesn't have glass jaw.

I don't know about bigger, but not too much less.

Rosado is a bit underrated, whereas Proksa was the opposite.

I heard interview from rosados sparring partner and he said that rosado had a part-time job besides boxing and he couldnt fully dedicate himself to this sport. So, rosado resume is not so good because:

1. Only 11 amateur fights
2. He started to box when he was 18 and his first pro fight was when he was 20.
3. Part-time Job

I really respect rosado, he is a true warrior and i think he must improve a lot, since he can focuse only on boxing...

Where Proksa was smaller than GGG, Rosado will atleast be a little longer (Golovkin looks way denser though). Also Rosado will have a full training camp unlike Proksa and I think his confidence is higher than Proksa's was going into the fight.

Proksa fought his ass off and landed some good shots with no effect and I'm willing to bet he has a harder punch than Rosado with a better chin.

I'm still hoping for a Golovkin Sturm fight. Golovkin would shock a lot people here in germany
Well forget about that Sturm is fighting Soliman for the IBF mandatory shot at the Geale v Mundine winner. He wants none of Golovkin.

Rosado has won some good fights lately, and I believe he has more momentum than Proksa did before facing GGG. That sometimes makes a difference. I'm not sure if it's a step up in skill or style though.

I think he will be, the context is different now with the boxing world knowing who Golovkin is, whereas when Golovkin fought Proska, there was no hype surround GGG, Rosado is clearly aware of the hype and will come more mentally prepared than the Polish kid did.

Rosado is another cherry pick for Golovkin to get another easy KO win
