Daniel Jacobs (36-3) vs. Gabriel Rosado (25-12-1) is a fight that came out of nowhere. Rosado hasn´t really done anything as of late to be fighting an elite guy like Jacobs. As you can imagine, Jacobs is a big favorite to win this fight and we fully agree on that. It is very unlikely that Rosado at this stage of his career will manage to beat a fighter of Jacobs’s caliber. One thing Rosado has going for him is his toughness. He has proven that over and over again but against an elite level guy that will not suffice. We have seen Rosado getting cut several times so that might be an issue also. Jacobs is by far the fresher of the two and he feels naturally at least a division bigger than Rosado. The value in this fight will be in determining how Jacobs will win as it is very unlikely that Rosado will pull the upset. (sign in to view our prediction & pick)
Daniel Jacobs is much more precise with his shots and just all-around a much better fighter in every aspect really. Rosado has a lot of miles on him and we believe Jacobs will break him down and get the stoppage here. The Pick is Danny Jacobs to win this fight by ko/tko.
