Alamodome, San Antonio, Texas - In the co-main event of the night, the resilient “King” Gabriel Rosado (26-15-1, 15 KOs) of Philadelphia, PA, was defeated by Shane Mosley Jr. (18-4, 10 KOs) of Pomona, CA, via majority decision in a 10-round fight capturing the WBA Continental Americas Super Middleweight title.
The fight went the distance as Mosley used his jab to set up his shots, while Rosado became the aggressor. Mosley, Jr. made great use of his footwork and head movement to avoid many of Rosado’s power punches.
Mosley won with scores of 98-92, 97-39, and 95-95.
“They know who I am now,” said Shane Mosley, Jr. “Gabriel is a great champ. We have to see what’s available. Right now 168 is tied up. Canelo has all the belts. Unless he vacates or fights someone else. I mean who’s going to turn down Canelo. I moved to 168 for the opportunity.”
