|Rosenberger (black trunks) takes on Osterrieder (red trunks)|
Danny Rosenberger of Niles has taken his share of lumps early in his career including being on the wrong end of controversial decisions to taking a fight on less than a weeks notice.
This past Saturday however, Rosenberger put everything in the past and let his fists go for his four-round bout at the 152-pound weight limit against Bobby Osterrieder of Butler, PA.
The opening round was a pretty even until Rosenberger caught Osterrieder with a hard right in the rounds closing moments, a punch that set the tone for the next round.
Rosenberger applied the pressure in the second round knocking Osterrieder down twice, first with a nice combination upstairs after an initial hard right staggered Osterrieder and second with a brutal right to the body that caused a delayed knockdown.
"It felt amazing. When you come to somebody's hometown you can't let the judges make the fight you have to take the fight to them" said Rosenberger of his impressive second round.
Despite appearing hurt, Osterrieder kept pressing and showed heart in the final two rounds of what turned out to be an entertaining fight.
"I did not want to be stupid and put myself in jeopardy," said Rosenberger of not finishing off an injured Osterrieder "I just wanted to pick my shots and be more active".
Rosenberger, 27, who won by a score of 39-35 on all three judges scorecards has now won his last two fights and improved his record to 2-3-2.
With the loss, Osterrieder, 28, fell to 1-1.
