win or lose...i have to give this man his props. apparently he didn't know about the catchweight. his promoter asked for it...and ggg's camp agreed to it. rosado said it wasn't necessary and basically took a page from the old school and said he'd fight ggg at his weight out of respect for boxing and the champion!!! plus...he didn't want any excuses about the 2lbs "when he wins." man i love this kids' confidence!!!!
i cannot wait for this fight. he's got me second guessing my initial prediction with this move. reading the article on the front page...i still felt they're making a mistake. it's apparent to me they really don't know who ggg is...and his trainer said they only started viewing tape of him since the fight was signed. i think they're biting off way more than this kid can chew. maybe they see something i don't? in any case...this kid just showed his balls to the world with this move. good for him! more fighters should take note.
on the flip side...u don't hear ggg talking about 'who is gabriel rosado?' or any bullshit like...'this kid isn't worthy...' or 'i wanna fight the best in the division, blah,blah,blah.' i hope ppl are taking note. this is how it's done.
