Golovkin Promises Fireworks: I Will Knock Rosado Out!
By Ryan Burton
This week'ss edition of BoxingScene's official audio show, The Boxing Lab, featured an appearance by Gennady Golovkin. The IBO/WBA middleweight champion spoke to us about his upcoming HBO televised fight against Gabriel Rosado. Golovkin said that he is excited to fight in New York again.
"I am happy because this is my second fight in New York and my first at Madison Square Garden. I can't wait for the fight," Golovkin stated.
He also let it be known that he wants to win by knockout. He understands that fans like exciting fights and that is why he has developed a crowd pleasing style.
"I want drama. I want to get in there and give a good fight. I don't want decisions. People don't want to see decisions. Guy wins a decision, then another decision, and another decision. That's boring," the candid Golovkin opined. "They want to see knockouts. I wanted to come to America and give the fans exciting fights so they want to see my fights," he continued.
Golovkin continued that theme by saying that he feels that he will knock Rosado out on Saturday. He cautioned that he isn't taking his opponent lightly but doesn't see the fight going the full 12 rounds.
"I think I will knock him out. I don't think its an easy fight for me or him. I do think it will be a good fight and I will knock him out," Golovkin told us on The Boxing Lab.

Go Golovkin!Comment by rey guey on 01-16-2013
something I find really odd, is why would Bob Arum let two other promoters on his undercard. Rosado is with Duva right? and Golovkin is with K2 I wonder if Arum has one of them in mind for Chavez jr?…Comment by mathed on 01-16-2013
I am curious to see what happens to 3G when he is pressed against the ropes. He plants his feet and is good at a certain distance but the situation may be different if he is smothered with no room…Comment by PR ESQ. on 01-16-2013
[QUOTE=rey guey;12922121]amateurs don't mean a whole lot, it's almost a different sport. Roberto Marroquin beat both Broner and Russell jr but do you think he could either of those guys today? you mentioned the Dirrell fight. Dirrell was winning that…Post a Comment - View More User Comments (17)
