Rosado In Final Preparation For Sept. 9 PA Title Fight With Collins

Philadelphia, PA—Old-time fighters, unlike most current-day pugilists, had strong support from their fans, who would attend their fights, win or lose.

Gabriel Rosado, the 25-year old junior middleweight from Philadelphia Pa, who meets Keenan Collins, of Reading, PA, for the Pennsylvania State junior middleweight title on Friday, Sept. 9, at the Asylum Arena (7 West Ritner Street) in South Philadelphia, is a throw-back fighter in many respects including the solid support he receives from his fans.

“I’m going to give my blood, sweat and tears to my fans,” said Rosado, who sports a 17-5 record with 10 knockouts.  “I want to win the fight, but at the same time I want to entertain them since they’re spending their hard-earned money to come see me.
“I want to thank my fans for all of their support and all of the love they have given me.  It really means a lot to me and fuels me to work even harder.  I don’t just do it for myself.  I get a great deal of pride to see the fans appreciate what I do.”

Rosado is riding the most impressive streak of his career, having won his last three fights, seven of his last nine, 11 of his last 14.  Included in those streaks are victories over former IBF world junior middleweight champ Kassim Ouma, of Uganda, and world-rated Saul Roman, of Mexico.

Rosado could have his hands full with Collins, 34, who is looking to make a statement late in his career.  The vacant PA junior middleweight title is just one incentive.  The other is national television exposure and a chance to make a good payday if he can upset the odds on Friday.

Collins is 13-6-2, 9 K0s, and managed and trained by Marshall Kauffman.

The Rosado-Collins championship bout and the eight-round semifinal, which features unbeaten welterweight prospect Ronald Cruz, of Bethlehem, PA, against Chris Fernandez, of Salt Lake City, UT, will be broadcast on TeleFutura’s Solo Boxeo Tecate at 11.30pm ET/PT (10.30pm CT).

Five additional fights, including a six-round heavyweight contest between Bryant Jennings (9-0, 4 K0s), of Philadelphia, PA, and Alexis Mejias (11-7, 5 K0s), of Paterson, NJ, complete the card, which begins at 7.30 p.m. and is being promoted by Peltz Boxing Promotions, Inc., Don Chargin Productions and Golden Boy Promotions.

Tickets are priced at $45 and $65.  They are on sale at the offices of Peltz Boxing Promotions (215-765-0922) and also can be purchased online at www.peltzboxing.com.
