The Barclay Center in Brooklyn, NY, was the site for Golden Boy Promotions triple header over HBO After Dark Saturday night.
David Lemieux, 33-2 (31), of Montreal, Canada, came out with both gun’s “a blazin” dropping Gabe “King” Rosado, 21-9 (13), of Philly in the 3rd round which started Rosado’s left eye closing.

It was catch up from there for Rosado being stopped in the 10th at 1:45 for the NABF middle-
weight title in a scheduled 12.
It was the eighth straight win for Lemieux. For Rosado it was the third time in losing in his last four fights plus a no contest.
Light middleweight Hugo ”The Boss” Centeno, Jr., of Oxnard, Ca, 22-2 (12), of had too much reach and fire power in stopping James “King” De la Rosa, 23-4 (13), of San Benito, TX, with a powerful overhand left for the count at 2:20 in the 5th round.

It was the third loss for De la Rosa in his last six fights.
Thomas Dulorme, 22-1 (14), of Puerto Rico, won a split decision to win the NABF light welterweight title over “Hammerin” Hank Lundy, 25-4-1 (13), of Philly, over 10 rounds.
A first round knockdown from a right hand to the temple of Lundy by Dulorme proved to be a major factor in the win for the much taller Dulorme.
Lemieux proved to be too much of a puncher for Rosado who didn’t seem to listen to his corner of Jesse Reid by being first and pushing back the smaller Lemieux.
The body work of Lemieux seemed to dominate the first 5 rounds with the 3rd round left hook dropping Rosado and started the closing of his left eye.
DHB (Dog House Boxing) had it 87-83 for Lemieux going into the 10th and final round.

The ring physician was called prior to each round starting in the 6th. Rosado’s best punches were lead rights but he just didn’t throw enough of them. He seemed out of it after the 9th round. In the 10th and final round it was all Lemieux who was going for the knockout when the ring physician ordered referee Steve Willis to halt the fight.
Centeno got off to a good start scoring a 1st round knockdown with his jab. De la Rosa finally got in the fight in the 3rd round drawing blood from the nose of Centeno.
After 4 rounds the announcers had it close but not this writer who saw Centeno winning all 4 rounds and in the 5th round ducked under a missed left hook by La Rosa and landed a powerful left to the right cheek of La Rosa who went down face first for the count by referee Pete Santiago.
Lundy got dropped in the 1st round and tried to outbox the much taller Dulorme up until the 3rd round when he finally listed to his corner that Barry Hunter told him to mix it up inside.

DHB had Dulorme ahead 97-92 as did judge Frank Lombardi and Don Trella had Lundy ahead 96-93 while Eric Marlinski had it 96-93 the other way for Dulorme by split decision. Dulorme’s corner of Robert Garcia directed him not to let Lundy inside and Dulorme seemed to tire down the stretch but Lundy once again proved he couldn’t win the big one.
The only thing keeping him from a title fight is himself. Dulorme fought a much smarter fight than Lundy. Whenever Lundy positions himself in an elimination type fight he comes up short. Lundy missed more overhand rights than he landed as he would walk in with his hands to his side. Referee Benjy Esteves, Jr., did a fine job.
