On Saturday night, Dec. 19, Philadelphia’s Gabe Rosado returned to the winning column for the first time in five fights with his ten-round unanimous decision victory over former welterweight champion Joshua Clottey on HBO Latino.

Two scorecards reading 97-93 and a third reading 96-94 were read in favor of Rosado (22-9, 13 KO’s), who was working for the first time under the guidance of trainer and former junior middleweight titlist Fernando Vargas.

With the win, Rosado is eager to face off with Canelo Alvarez this coming May, as the Mexican superstar and newly-crowned WBC middleweight champion is eyeing a return on May 7.
