Jermell ‘Iron Man’ Charlo scored his biggest career win to date after taking apart former world title challenger ‘King’ Gabriel Rosado over ten rounds at the DC Armory in Washington.
The 23 year-old headed to 23-0 with minimal fuss in an impressive 100-90, 99-91, 97-93 performance that left Rosado with his usual bloodied face from old cuts reopening through the contest.
Charlo is highly-ranked with the IBF and could conceivably be in the mix to face one of the light-middleweight title holders by the end of this year, whilst Rosado may now rethink his move back down to 154lbs.
On the undercard a host of young prospects gained predicted victories tonight as Golden Boy’s future generation went eight for eight on the undercard of Lamont Peterson’s clash with Dierry Jean.
The likes of Dominic Wade, Rau’shee Warren, Robert Easter and Jamel Herring came through their scheduled opponents, whilst fledging pros D’Mitrius Ballard, Raynell Williams, Semajay Thomas and Javonte Clark followed suit.
Wade (14-0), Warren (10-0) and Easter (9-0), the more experienced of the bunch all scored points decisions over Dashon Johnson, German Meraz and Daniel Attah respectively, as Herring (7-0) was handed a split card to come out on top against Antonio Sanchez.
Ballard (4-0), Williams (3-0) and Clark (1-0) managed to end their fights before the finish as Thomas (2-0) toppled Kevin Womack Jr. over four rounds to complete a successful night for GBP’s next crop.
More results to come….
