Gabe Rosado Reacts To Split Decision Loss To Daniel Jacobs
Gabe Rosado believes he kept Daniel Jacobs quiet despite the narrow loss.
Rosado and Jacobs collided in the main event of a Matchroom Boxing card on November 27. The beef was alive and well between the two but the fight failed to live up to expectations. Rosado, however, impressed many with his technical boxing. Many expected Rosado to swing wild while Jacobs would be the one to utilize his technical skills to get an easy win. While Jacobs did get the victory, it was far from easy.
Rosado issued a statement on his Instagram account following the split decision loss to Jacobs.

“All the smack this guy was talking and I kept him quiet using a busy jab, and counter punches. My defense was on point making him miss consistently. I controlled the pace of the fight like a seasoned pro. Daniel Jacobs expected me to jump in and fight reckless, but I fought a discipline fight boxing & applying pressure at the right times. January makes my 15th year as a pro. I been doing this for a while! I’m a student of the game and I know my craft. They don’t give me credit for my ring IQ. The commentators always bringing up the fact that I cut easy, which is old news. I haven’t cut since 2014! They want WAR and don’t appreciate the fact that I’m able to reinvent myself so can last in this tough sport and be able to count my money when I retire. I entered the sport for longevity, I paid my dues… let me add to my legacy!”
