Gabe Rosado KO Bektemir Melikuziev, KO video, watch, highlights

‘He’s bought a puncher’s chance.’

We hear that a good deal in boxing. But almost never do we in fact see the enormous underdog obtain that punch.

On Sunday in El Paso, Texas, we did.

35-12 months-previous Gabe Rosado ruined an undefeated tremendous middleweight prospect with a right hand from out of nowhere to stun the boxing environment, and himself.

Rosado (26-13-1) landed a right hand in the third round to depart Olympic silver medallist Bektemir Melikuziev (7-1) in a mess on the canvas.

The veteran battled an early storm from Melikuziev — dropping in the very first round — before landing the killer blow to get the WBA Continental Americas tremendous middleweight title and the vacant WBO Intercontinental tremendous middleweight title.

People watching on couldn’t rather consider what they’d just seen.

Right after his battle, Rosado referred to as out Jaime Munguia, who went on to prevent Kamil Szeremeta in the primary event.
