Photos: Gabe Rosado Drills Bryan Vera on BKB PPV
Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, NV - In the BKB main event, Gabriel Rosado defeated Bryan Vera by 5th round knockout to win the middleweight BKB championship. Vera dropped Rosado with a flash knockdown in the third when Rosado appeared to trip on the lip where the pit and the ramp meet. Seconds later Rosado returned the favor and floored Vera who was able to rise to his feet.
Rosado kept the momentum with a huge 4th round as he landed several hard punches and began to showboat by throwing several bolo punches. Rosado caught Vera at the end of the 5th round to floor the Texan for a second and final time. Vera rose to his feet but was still staggered, prompting Kenny Bayless to halt the fight.

[QUOTE=kiaba360;14866090]It could also be accumulation of punishment over Vera's career. He's been stopped before, taken thousands of punches and his chin finally gave out on him. Rosado isn't feather-fisted and the fight took place at 160 so he wasn't drained…Comment by kiaba360 on 08-17-2014
[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll;14866042]I was thinking the same thing. Cruiserweight Chavez couldn't dent Vera and now all of a sudden Rosado crushes him? That back acne is very suspicious.[/QUOTE] It could also be accumulation of punishment over Vera's career. He's been stopped before,…Post a Comment/View More User Comments (31)
