Josh Rosen is a man of few words but, according to his record, he's doing just fine without them. Currently at 2 wins and 0 losses, Rosen has proven himself in the cage and is ready to do it again on April 21st at the VFL: Brazos Throwdown IV. When Rosen isn't training at Ohana Academy in San Antonio, he works as a personal trainer and has even competed in body building. Now he's looking to put that strength to the test against fellow featherweight, opponent Dakota Hope-Lewis.
