North Philadelphia's Gabriel Rosado has removed himself from the December 8 boxing card at Temple University.
Rosado (21-5, 13 KOs) was scheduled to fight Elvin Ayala as part of of NBC's Fight Night at McGonigle Hall. But, the 26-year-old said he's being patient and is waiting for his mandatory title shot with Cornelius Bundrage.
Replacing Rosado on the card is North Philadelphia featherweight Teon Kennedy, who lost by fifth-round knockout in June to WBA champion Guillermo Rigondeaux. Kennedy (17-2, 7 KOs) will meet Texas' Jerry Belmontes (17-0, 5 KOs).
La Salle's Tom Coyle navigated the 3.1-mile course in 15:59 to capture the District 12 Class AAA title on Thursday afternoon at Belmont Plateau.
Kevin James of Cardinal O'Hara finished 5 seconds behind for second place as the Lions finished six runners in the top 10 to capture the team title.

After lauding midfielder Keon Daniel for having his best game of the year in Saturday’s 1-0 Major League Soccer win over the New England Revolution, Union team manager John Hackworth gave some insight into while there haven’t been more of these performances.
“He did a lot of work to get back (defensively) and his intensity was right,” Hackworth said. “That has been something Keon has struggled with a little bit, the intensity of our league. He is certainly stepping up in that regard.”
