We have a pretty diverse team here at The Heavy Bag. We don’t always agree but… Well here is our predictions for this weekends card headlined by Gab Rosado vs David Lemieux.
“On paper Gabriel Rosado is the fighter in the rise. He just signed with powerhouse boxing promoter Oscar de la Hoya, and has a lot prove now. Even though Rosado has never been a world champion, he has competed at the level twice; against GGG and against Peter Quillin. This makes Rosado the “season veteran,” to sort of speak. So yes, Rosado has the most experience, and to add to his experience he is now working with a world class trainer in Jesse Reid. Aside from he’s boxing skills and heart of a warrior, rosado finally has a strong team behind him to motivate and take his career to another level. For that matter, Rosado knows what’s at stake and will outbox Lemieux to get a unanimous decision victory.” -Rudy Gutierrez
“While I respect and even like Lemieux, the Rubio fight sticks with me. Lemieux ran out of gas, was walked down and eventually stopped by the veteran. Rosado is not Rubio, Rosado’s chin is solid. Don’t believe me?check the Golovkin fight. While Golovkin did hurt him it was the cut that eventually stopped the fight. So in short I doubt Lemieux has the ability to stop Rosado and Rosado’s superior skills will show up as he will easily out point Lemieux.” – Lucas Biggers
“What we do know is that David Lemieux is a pressure fighter who based on his record obviously has a lot of power. He fights at a furious pace and throws hooks to the head and body at will. Gabriel Rosado is a veteran boxer who has been in the ring, and whose good movement/ athleticism has caused problems for big punchers like Gennady Golovkin and Peter Quillin. Lemieux does have 32 wins with 30 knockouts, so he has the equalizer and can change the fight at any point. At the same time, we look back at the opposition he has faced, and the only name that really jumps out is Marco Antonio Rubio, who knocked out Lemiex in the seventh round. Rosado definitely has the advantage in experience, having been in the ring with Alfredo Angulo, Gennady Golovkin, Peter Quillin, and Jermell Charlo. This writer feels that Rosado’s head movement, footwork, and aggressiveness is going to cause problems for Lemieux’s easy to figure out style. If cuts do not become a factor, it should be a unanimous decision victory for Gabriel Rosado.” – Hector Gomez
“It seems like whenever you pick against Rosado he proves you wrong. Lemuiex just hasn’t fought at the same level. That is the Big difference in this fight so I am giving the edge to Rosado. So for these two fights I have Dulorme and Rosado both by unanimous decision. Sorry fight fans but no knockout here.” – Robert Alexander
