Gabe Rosado: I Really Want To Knock Golovkin Out
By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes
Junior middleweight contender Gabe Rosado is being viewed as the smaller man, but when he stood side by side with WBA/IBO middleweight king Gennady Golovkin (24-0, 21KOs) - Rosado was the bigger man. Rosado will move up in weight to challenge Golovkin on January 19th at The Theater in New York's Madison Square Garden,
Rosado (21-5, 13KOs) is not only eager to trade punches with Golovkin, he wants to end the fight in the most impressive way possible. He wants to put Golovkin, one of the most feared punchers in boxing, on his back. HBO will televise the contest.
"I don't really think the weight is going to be a factor. Me and him, we're pretty much the same size. I've got him in height and in reach. I'm a big junior middleweight. I'm not a small junior middleweight. I'm a big guy. I'm pretty much a middleweight who can make the junior middleweight division," Rosado told BoxingScene.com.
"I'm definitely going to take advantage of the opportunity and go hard in training and be ready to win. I've been knocking guys out too. In my seven fight winning streak, five of those wins are by knockout. I'm stretching guys too. So, he has power and I have power. His shots have to land and I know that I have a better defense. The question is....can he handle my power? I don't think he's fought a guy who can punch like me or can put his punches together like me or has the experience of a fighter like me."
"Expect a great fight. Expect a great performance by me. I'm going to showcase my talent on another level. I want to win by knockout. I'm determined to win by knockout. Would I be satisfied with a decision...of course, because its the middleweight championship of the world. But I want to do it in impressive fashion, I want to make a statement, I want to knock him out."
