WILLPOWER: Rosinsky Grinds Out Victory against Griffin!
Fri, 21 Dec 2012
New York, NY (December 20, 2012) – Super middleweight contender Will “Power” Rosinsky earned a hard-fought ten round unanimous decision over former USBA Light Heavyweight titlist Otis “Triple OG” Griffin Wednesday evening at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City.
With a packed house roaring him on, Rosinsky fought through a few rough moments in the early going. The Queens, NY native got cut over his left eye in the opening round and was briefly hurt by a right hand near the end of the second, but battled his way back. Griffin, who had a 3 inch height and six inch reach advantage, connected with some good shots from the outside and boxed effectively in spots, but Rosinsky constantly pressured Griffin in close quarters.
The 2005 US Amateur Champion found a home for straight right hands and body shots, outworking his Sacramento, CA based foe for the majority of the bout. Although it was a closely fought contest, Rosinsky’s consistency earned him the nod.
Scores were 97-93 and 96-94 twice. With the victory, Rosinsky improves to 17-2 with 9 knockouts while claiming the New York State Light Heavyweight title.
“I definitely was in shape for this fight but (Griffin) was (the bigger man) and my punches didn't have the same impact they do do at super middleweight,” said Rosinsky, who moved up to light heavyweight against Griffin. “Griffin was comfortable at 175 and I knew he was a tough guy who fought a lot of the top light heavyweights. In 2013, I’ll be moving down to 168 and perhaps even 160.”
