What is our Bet of the Day?
The result wasn't good as he got steam rolled by Alfredo Angulo in two rounds. Now throw in the fact that Rosado is a natural junior middleweight and its not hard to imagine this fight producing an early candidate for 's knockout of the year. Golovkin is on another level and if there is a boxing God we will see him battle Sergio Martinez this fall.
I don't want to sound like I am completely over looking Rosado's chances to win this fight but I guess that's exactly what I'm doing. He will go down fighting, but he will go down hard and probably in the first half of the fight. The official prediction is Golovkin by brutal knockout.
Gabrel Campillo vs Sergey Kovalev 0 - Stylistically, this is an intriguing fight as it matches the pure boxer vs the puncher. Campillo is coming off of a great performance against Tavoris Cloud but unfortunately two of the Texas judges missed a great fight. Kovelev has been in very soft as Campillo will provide him with his toughest test to date. Campillo's somewhat awkward southpaw style could easily frustrate Kovelev as the Russian born light heavyweight contender looks to land the one big shot.
Campillo is the more experienced fighter and that will go a long way in determining the outcome of this fight. Look for Campillo to survive some shaky moments as he did against Cloud. In this article, Loot breaks down the action, the styles of the fighters, and offers his betting pick in what could be the Fight of the Year.

Loot breaks down the action here, along with his betting prediction. Undefeated welterweights take center stage in Las Vegas on April 14, with Jeff Horn defending his WBO belt against a former two-division champ in his first fight at pounds in Terence Crawford.
The Crawford is considered one of the top fighters in the sport and is a large favorite as he goes for a title in his third weight class. Horn holds a win over Pacquiao, though some still question his talent and merit at this position. Will Crawford use Horn as a stepping-stone to bigger things at welterweight?
Or will Horn again show that he's more of a handful than people think? Loot offers his take and betting pick here!
