On Friday night at Bally's in Atlantic City, junior middleweight Gabriel Rosado (17-5, 10KOs) stopped Ayi Bruce in the fifth round, but the celebration took a wild turn at Bally's Wild West Casino. Around 3:15 a.m., Rosado and a group of friends were acting disorderly, according to an NBC affiliate in Philadelphia. Casino security attempted to make the crew of six men leave. Assisting security was uniformed police officer Franco Sydnor.
Rosado allegedly punched Synder in the mouth and split his lip. Security jumped in to help Synder and a brawl broke out between the two sides. Security had issues trying to restrain Rosado, who kept trying to press the fight. A member of Rosado's party grabbed Officer Sydnor's police baton, but the officer was able to get it back.
Once backup finally arrived, Rosado was arrested. Sydnor required stitches to close his lip and additional stitches for a wound on his elbow. Rosado was charged with aggravated assault on police and causing a riot.
