Go USA! Rosado has a chance . The deck is stacked against him. I expect a good fight. If German goo girls doesn't clip him quickly it might drag out and who knows what can happen. No $ on him but rooting for rosado anyway

deepwater says:

Upon further review, forget that . Ggg By ko in 5

SouthPaul says:

I'm digging his tattoo. He got the memo. Go great artist or don't go at all. Even if you want a portrait of Ronald McDonald ...just make sure the artist had the skills to pay the bills. Diamonds are forever..and so is ink under the skin.

the Roast says:

I'm excpecting Triple G to walk on water on his way to the ring and then KO Rosado to keep the hype machine rolling. Lets hope a big name fighter will step in and test GGG soon.

brownsugar says:

whether he's Walking on water,... rising up like a Phoenix from a burning pile of ashes...or decending from the sky on the winds of hype... with an "S" on his chest... GGG will emerge from this fight as a major attraction. ... and we need those.

teaser says:

lots and lots of hype for GGG...but hey I sure we're gonna see fireworks in this one ...Rosado has holes to exploit and GGG will be in range to catch a few also....waiting to see if GGG will time that right to left head feint of Rosado with a goodnite right of his own

Radam G says:

I'm not feeling 3-G. Maybe he is a half of G. But y'all know me. I'm down with O-P-P. Holla!

Grimm says:

Don't know enough about Rosado to say anything, really, except I like his attitude - but Golovkin looks like the package, and is a child of the paradox of Eastern Europe: in general miserable conditions - truly miserable - next door to a sporting system that sucks up young talents and breed them scientifically. The products come out as tough SOB's with great foundation, all the motivation in the world - and a readiness to forsake alot to make it big time. Since the days of the Soviet Union, the system in the former republics all know at which particular age a child must begin in any given sport, what sort of training - at what level, intensity, etc - to begin with, and so on. I've ran across a few of these young starlets on their roadtrips thru Europe - all shy, quiet, with a remarkable work ethic - and they are at a level of their own. (Same goes for the trainers. In general unpleasant and very authoritarian characters, but they know what they're talking about. They really know.) They may not all be entertaining to watch, once they've become adult elite boxers - Golovkin being one of the exceptions - but they sure as ---- are good. And even in the crowded history of great eastern european fighters, Golovkin already stand out.

Very insightful post Grim......... I've been waiting to hear someones opinion from across the water.

i agree completly was going to say the same..

ggg ko within 6

amayseng says:

looks like deep was off two rounds and i was off by one round for the ggg stoppage....

after seeing rosado on his horse from the opening bell i figured it would go to the cards....

its hard to get a guy out of there when you are chasing him around 3 minutes per round and unable to set your feet...

ggg is fantastic, 350 amateur fights under his belt has him well seasoned, he could use a little more head movement at times, but that is difficult to do when chasing a guy non stop...

brownsugar says:

agreed.... GGG has mastered the technique of keeping his weight equally balanced between the front foot and the back foot simultaneously.. he can skip backward to avoid punishment or put maximum weight into his punches as he moves forward.

Cutting guys open with a jab is a lost art. His gloves were as big as pillows yet they were both dyed crimson as a result of his relentlessly potent assault.

He seemed a little dissappointed after the fight, stating that he wanted to see Rosado throw more.. few boxers have such a warriors attitude.

Rosado looked good at the weight... not blown up or out of his depth. he appeared to have more stamina and punch resistance. If he can't stay at middleweight, I'd like to see him challenge Bundrage, maybe K-9 won't duch him this time.

Finally,.. what was up with Rosado's dad?... how could he have a fight to the death attitude while watching his son being put through a meat grinder? his whole team knew it was over by the 6th round.

Radam G says:

That is the game, B-Sug. Boxing fathers always move late as their sons are getting a thrashing. This is why they depend on a trusty second to keep them in check.

Bottomline, fathers are late. Mothers are early. Wives and girlfriends are mixed up.

When it comes to kidship, trust only brothers, sisters, cousins, aunties and uncles. Holla!
