FORMER IBF welterweight ruler Joshua Clottey will face tough warrior Gabriel Rosado in New York on December 19 (on the Luis Ortiz-Bryant Jennings card) and the 38-year-old from Accra, Ghana is hoping an impressive win will lead to a shot at the winner of the November 21 Saul “Canelo” Alvarez-Miguel Cotto super-fight.

Currently 39-4(22) and campaigning as a light-middleweight, Clottey will have to go up to an agreed catch-weight of 158-pounds to fight Rosado, 21-9(13). “The Grand Master,” as Clottey is known, is sure he will get the win next month.
