As we should all know by now, JeLeon Love is set to face Gabe Rosado on May 4th. This is a bout that I wouldn't mind seeing.

Looks like Roger's training him for this fight, but really, is Love really ready for this test? I love the fact that they're putting him in there with some stiff competition though, no complaints over here.

Rosado may have been beaten by GGG, but I vividly remember him sparking Soto-Karass and Powell. In Love's last fight, he had a hard time with Findley, so hopefully Rosado's style will force Love to fight a tactical fight that he seems to be pretty decent at fighting.

Have they bitten off more than they can chew with the Rosado fight? What happens if he beats Rosado?

PS: I met J. Love back in Vegas a few months ago, and he seems to be a real cool and humble guy...unlike the rest of those retarded Money Team sack-riders. I guess they only show the cool Money Team members on tv, because the ones I saw were straight poo-poo.

They are not the major players on his team. It is equivalent to the guys who are on the high school varsity football team but they are third stringers who happen to be really cool with the star QB and RB. So they walk around with their Letterman jackets trying to act hard and important. Same thing. Floyd did say he would put his fighters against the best, at least he is not babysitting them, you can't knock that. Why be 26-0 and have no real names with those wins? If they really to swim, let them swim!

I don't want to think they would put J love in there with someone he would lose against, but G Rosado is actually pretty good, I only saw the good fight he had with GGG. Just gonna be a great fight, i still haven't seen much of love but this will put him to the test, i haven't watched enough of him but ill bet Love by SD.

If he does beat Rosado i wanna to see Love vs GGG. I know Mayweather is letting his people fight tough opponents, you think he would let any of his fighters go in with GGG? You already know GGG down to fight anyone.

it's unfortunate that j.love has to be the first casualty in mayweather promotions learning phase. maybe they'll sign rosado when he wins?

Rosado is no challenge. 8 yrs ago he was a basketball player. Plus hes undersized at MW. Findley might of been 5'7" but he was built like a bowling ball and JLeon will probably never fight anybody that short again. I expect J to walk right thru Rosado but it wont prove much.

Rosado comes to fight win/lose/draw. He will at the very least win a close fight. Personally I think he'll win.

j couldn't walk through valenzuela who at very best had primitive skills and wasn't exactly a specimen. don't sleep on rosado...he's been putting in work during his short career. i seriously doubt he walks through rosado.

based off of what i've seen from jleon....he's slick but not super slick. he's not making adjustments immediately. the last 2 fights i saw him in were very unimpressive to be honest....and the opposition is not on par with what rosado brings to the ring. rosado beat the bricks off sechew powell. that was impressive. he actually impressed me against golovkin. he showed intelligence and patience against a much superior fighter. in comparison...jleon is going to be an easy fight for rosado. he really didn't take a beating in that fight....and i get the feeling that's why jleon's ppl made this fight...because they believe rosado has been softened up. that is not the case. they're going to find out come may 4th.

Has it dawned on anyone, that Love on has 15 fights under his belt? I mean, anything is possible, but let's face it, Rosado has taken the hard road to get to where he is. He knows how to lose, and I'm not sure Love is ready for that reality just yet.

A record and/or quality of opposition plays a huuuuge role in situations like this, but that's not always the case. If you have the skill and confidence in using it, then hats off to ya, but I'm not sure Love fairs in this one. Rosado has been KO'd, battered, and bloodied over they years, and was able to fight through most of it.

I guess it all depends on what Love shows up on fight night, and if he's able to control the pace.

Simply put either he is going to sink or swim in this fight. Let's see if this kid has what it takes to go deep in the oceans or is he going to be looking for shallow waters and a life guard to save him. Shit or either get off the toilet.

Alot of guys come to fight but its about ability. And I dont see much in Rosado. I look at Rosado and see journeyman written all over him. So are you saying once JLeon beats Rosado your going to start giving him the 3G type slurpegde?

J is the better boxer but has holes in his game that can be exploited, if Rosado has those holes figured then he should be able to beat J but none of us really know until it happens.

No idea what you mean by the last bit, but its not as Rosado has no ability. I just don't think it'll be the walk over your naming it

I like Rosado and his resume is better then Love's a this point but it's not that much better. Rosado's made a good name for himself fighting on those NBC cards. He showed toughness against Golovkin but he wasn't going to win that fight. IDK who wins this fight but Love is good and it won't be easy for either man to win
