The bout will be an undercard to Golden Boy Promotions and HBO’s headlined heavyweight bout between Luis Ortiz and Bryant Jennings, and the junior lightweight bout between former featherweight champion Nicholas Walters and Jason Sosa.

Apart from the Clottey-Rosado fight, there will also be a bout between light heavyweight contender Yunieski Gonzalez (16-1, 12 KOs) and Vyacheslav Shabranskyy (14-0, 12 KOs).

Twenty-nine-year-old Rosado from Philadelphia has lost his last four bouts while Clottey from Ghana has won his last four fights in a row, with the latest win against Jorge Silva on May 9.

Clottey beat Calvin Green via TKO in the second round, Dashon Johnson in a unanimous decision, and picked another victory over former middleweight champ Anthony Mundine in April 2014.

Although he is going up a little bit in weight while Rosado will be going down a little bit in weight, the Ghanaian will be hoping for victory to re-launch his quest to get a world title bout.
