Middleweight contender Gabriel Rosado came across a harsh reality when he fought Gennady Golovkin for the world titles in 2013. ‘King’ Rosado remained on the wrong end of a lopsided beat down and suffered sheer damage. Despite bringing in his best efforts, Rosado had almost no answer to GGG’s skills.

Golovin took no time to turn the fight into a bloodbath and vanquished his rival with five rounds remaining at the main event. Golovkin was undefeated back then and was a supreme middleweight kingpin. Rosado got to know about it in the hardest possible way.

Apart from a loss, he had to depart with a bloodied face as his corner was forced to throw in the towel. Similar to that of Fury vs Wilder 2, Golovkin vs Rosado was also a fight that ended abruptly and it was one man who stole all the spotlight. Here’s a deeper look into the fight.

The bout began with both men charming each other with good shots. Gabriel Rosado looked focused and offered his best side, but got caught in round two that left an opening over his eye. That injury later cost him the whole fight. Following three close rounds that were slightly in favor of GGG, Rosado looked dominant in round four.

He shook GGG with some good shots and then did his best in round five. Gabriel Rosado out-landed Gennady Golovkin and it was surprising even to the Kazakh superstar. GGG looked confused, as he was also warned about a cheap shot in round six.

In round seven, Golovkin did more damage to Rosado’s eye-cut.

While the Philly corner did their best to stop the blood flow, the cut was way too deep for that. As Rosado had already lost a lot of blood, his corner took the right decision to stop the contest. It’s been eight years since that contest. Nevertheless, it’s still fresh in people’s minds and is considered one of the biggest wins in Gennady Golovkin’s resume.
