I’m going for Martin Murray. I think he is more refined as a fighter, and he is the bigger guy.

I see an entertaining fight, though I see Murray’s strength, size and superior jab being crucial in leading him to a decision win over Gabriel Rosado.

Prediction: Murray

Martin Murray is hoping for one last title shot with a win. Gabriel Rosado, a respected gatekeeper in the Middleweight division is looking to keep his career on track after a unanimous decision loss to Willie Monroe.

I like Murray in a battle of attrition with a decision win in front of his hometown fans.

Both Gabriel Rosado and Martin Murray seem to be past their prime, but somehow keep pressing on.

I respect both of their warrior spirits and that they always come to fight. I think Murray has a little more left in his gas tank than Rosado, but this still seems like a pretty even match up all the way around.

Murray by decision.

This is the battle of the guys that never go away. Martin Murray and Gabriel Rosado will never go away–ever.

In all seriousness, Murray and Rosado are–for the most part–exciting fighters to watch.

Rosado, who changes trainers like underwear, seemed gun shy and way off his game last fight against Willie Monroe. He’s now back with the trainer that I think knows him best and gets the most out of him in Billy Briscoe.

Whether that makes a difference remains to be seen, but let’s hope we see a better version of Rosado than what we got against Monroe.

I give Murray the slight edge in terms of what he’s got left in the tank and with the size advantage I think it give him a good edge that he can exploit.

I like Murray by decision over Rosado in a bloody scrap.

Prediction: Murray
