Gennady Golovkin Batters Gabriel Rosado In Seven Rounds

Gennady Golovkin earned his 12th straight stoppage after systematically breaking down Gabriel Rosado inside of seven rounds Saturday evening at Madison Square Garden's The Theatre in New York City.

Golovkin went to work early on Rosado, who was moving up from super welterweight for the middleweight title fight opportunity. A cut was produced by the end of the second round courtesy of a left jab, with Rosado's evening only getting worse from that point onward.

Rosado was game for the cause, and briefly enjoyed momentum in a brave fifth round showing. Golovkin was hurt for the first time in the fight, along with a mouse developing under his eye. The moment was short-lived, however. Golovkin picked apart the North Philly product in the sixth round and proceeded to deliver a beatdown in a brutal seventh round.

Ironically, the round began with Rosado's corner telling the fighter they wanted to stop the fight, only for the fighter to overrule his corner. That decision was trumped towards the end of the round, when it was decided that his health was in danger after taking enormous punishment from Golovkin.

Rosado's corner literally threw in the towel, accompanied on the ring apron by a New York State Athletic Commission inspector to instruct referee Steve Smoger to stop the contest.

The official time was 2:46 of round seven.

Golovkin picks up his second straight stateside win - both of which have aired live on HBO - as he improves to 25-0 (22KO).

Rosado - who sacrificed a mandatory super welterweight title fight with Cornelius 'K9' Bundrage to take this bigger opportunity - falls to 21-6 (13KO). The fight snaps a seven-fight win streak, with his last loss also coming in his last fight in the middleweight division more than two years ago.

GGG could beat the likes of the quillins and chavez jr's of the world but martinez beats him via ko in my opinion and ward picks him apart at 168

[QUOTE=kiaba360]Two or three years is way too far. He needs to show what he has in 2013 against the top guys. I think GGG would already be a star if the other guys would be willing to fight him. Geale/Quillin/Chavez/Pirog should be on his radar.[/QUOTE] I get what you are saying, but what I me...

Rosado showed much heart, huuuge props to that brother, i wish him well. Hope to see em back. GGG vs Chavez? Both got enough chin and power it can go either way. Theyd both get brain damage though.

Even though rosado lost he showed huge heart he never quit he could go back to super welter and take on anybody in that division golovkin is a solid middleweight it took a lot of balls to go against that calibur of a fighter for a first time in that division.
