Shane Mosley Jr Scores Decision Win Over Gabe Rosado, Wants A ‘Real’ World Title
Shane Mosley Jr snatched the WBA Continental Americas Super Middleweight title in the co-main event of Ryan Garcia vs Emmanuel Tagoe.
Mosley (18-4, 10 KOs) defeated Gabriel Rosado (26-15-1, 15 KOs) for the title and won it by majority decision.
“They know who I am now,” Mosley said.
“Gabriel is a great champ. We have to see what’s available. Right now 168 is tied up. Canelo has all the belts. Unless he vacates or fights someone else. I mean who’s going to turn down Canelo. I moved to 168 for the opportunity.”
Throughout the bout, Mosley used his jabs to set up his shots. And, thanks to his footwork and head movement, he was able to dodge Rosado’s power punches.
Mosley stunned Rosado with a big shot in the tenth round, but it wasn’t enough for the knockout.
Still, the 31-year-old took home the win and the belt with scorecards of 98-92, 97-39 and 95-95.
“I want to get a championship. I want to get a real one of these [world titles],” Mosley said.
