Gennady Golovkin won in seven rounds last night after Gabriel Rosado's trainer was forced to throw in the towel. Golovkin was reportedly sick heading into the fight, but it did not seem to stop him.
He cut Rosado in the corner of his left eye in the second round. He rocked him with a right hand in the third round. By the fourth round, Rosado's face was a bloody mess after also being cut over his left eye and bleeding from the nose. ... Rosado's left eye was in very bad shape and the ringside doctor took a good look at it before both the sixth and seventh rounds as Rosado pleaded to be allowed to continue.
Both fighters were covered in Rosado's blood in the seventh round as Rosado continued to bleed badly until his trainer, Billy Briscoe, climbed the steps and threw in the towel.
The video shows Briscoe pleading with Rosado's father to let him stop the fight. Rosado can't see anything and is taking punch after punch. Finally, Briscoe just gets on the ring to get the referee's attention and stops the fight at the 2:46 mark of the seventh round.
