Elvis Grant Phillips, the CEO of Grant Worldwide, hit back at middleweight contender Gabe Rosado for his recent comments related to the gloves used by WBA/IBO champion Gennady Golovkin during their January fight at the Theater in New York's Madison Square Garden.

Rosado, in a recent interview with, questioned the nature of the Grant gloves that Golovkin was using. He felt Golovkin was provided with a different type of glove. Rosado took a beating in the fight, which his corner eventually stopped, and Golovin picked up a seventh round TKO victory.

"Some people can't handle a loss, but to come back eight or nine months later and start pointing's pretty sad," Phillips told

"He had the opportunity to use the same gloves, to use Golovkin's gloves. Abel Sanchez told them 'if you think something is wrong, then take our gloves and we'll use the backup gloves.' [Rosado's trainer] trainer was trying them and they said 'no, no, no...we'll use our gloves.' So that's why it's really foolish what Rosado said, but karma is a bitch and it came back [to bite him in the Peter Quillin fight].

"I really hope that he'll retract his statements because his comments were very disparaging and insulting to me and my company and to my integrity which people know is impeccable."
