Mayweather vs Guerrero undercard: Santa Cruz vs Munoz, Love vs Rosado official

Josh Hedges

The May 4 Showtime pay-per-view undercard is set, with Leo Santa Cruz back in action, and J'Leon Love facing Gabriel Rosado.

Showtime's May 4 pay-per-view lineup is complete, as two new fights have been made official. As expected, Leo Santa Cruz is in action, and middleweight prospect J'Leon Love will face Gabriel Rosado.

Santa Cruz (23-0-1, 13 KO) will move up to super bantamweight to face veteran Alexander Munoz (36-4, 28 KO). Munoz, 34, hasn't been a serious contender for a while now, and he's really not a super bantamweight himself, so in all honesty, this is more a showcase fight for Santa Cruz, the 24-year-old punching machine, or at least that's the obvious idea. Munoz hasn't faced a serious opponent since 2010, when he lost to Koki Kameda in Japan, and has fought just once since then, beating a stiff last November in Caracas.

Still, having Santa Cruz on a show is never a bad thing, so it's hard to complain much about the matchup. We're often given far less appealing fights on PPV undercards than this one, and this is the worst fight of the show, far from offensive even at that.

Love (15-0, 8 KO) is a Mayweather Promotions prospect who has had some exposure on Showtime. The 25-year-old Michigan native has some talent, but there are questions about his true upside. Rosado (21-6, 13 KO) will give us a better idea of how good Love is right now; the Philly fighter has been in tough pretty much his entire career, and has clawed his way into contention by taking on anyone he can. Rosado last fought in January, valiantly but clearly losing to Gennady Golovkin in a bloody fight on HBO.
