James Micheal De La Rosa (born November 18, 1987 in Tamaulipas, Mexico) is a Mexican professional boxer and the brother of Light Middleweight boxer Juan De la Rosa [1] who was on The Contender.[2] He filed for bankruptcy which canceled out his contracts with Duva Boxing and Cavazos Boxing.[3] De La Rosa would then go and sign with Don King's promotional company.[4]

Early life[edit]

De La Rosa's father is a Mexican and his mother is a Texas native.

Professional career[edit]

De La Rosa's first big win came against undefeated Abel Perry by 2nd round K.O. as the headliner of a TeleFutura card.[5] On October 3, 2008[6] James gave the much feared Tim Coleman the first lost of his career.[7]
