Gilberto Ramirez vs. Gabriel Rosado undercard: Complete list of fights before main event in 2023 boxing match

Long Beach, California hosts a light-heavyweight clash between Gilberto Ramirez and Gabriel Rosado, fighters looking to return to their former glory, on March 18. 

The fight takes place inside Walter Pyramid. DAZN will broadcast the event. 

Ramirez had his 44-fight win streak snapped against Dmitry Bivol in November. “Zurdo” failed to win the WBA light-heavyweight title, and the 31-year-old hopes a win against Rosado results in a rematch. Still, Ramirez is not dismissing the skills of his opponent. 

“He (Rosado) is a tough opponent who is always ready to fight,” Ramirez said via Boxing Scene. “He has been in the ring with the best and can be dangerous at any time of the fight. And to have it be a Mexico versus Puerto Rico match-up is just a cherry on top to make this an exciting fight for fans… I’m more motivated than ever to get back on track and show why I’m still one of the best in the game.”

A former middleweight contender, Rosado has gone 5-11-1 with one no-contest in his last 17 fights and is currently on a three-fight losing streak. However, he has only been knocked out four times in his career, and Rosado is not putting himself down, especially when he’s faced the best boxing has to offer. 

“My career is like life. Life has ups and downs,” Rosado stated to DAZN via Boxing Scene. “I really be looking at my career like life. Can you imagine like in life, when things get hard, you let that defeat you? You ain’t never going make nothing out of your life.” 

Outside of the main event, former title contenders and young prospects are ready to steal the show on the main card. Here is a look at the entire main card of Ramirez vs. Rosado.
