Bektemir Melikuziev vs Gabriel Rosado – Super middleweight

Melikuziev used his jab to push Rosado towards the ropes. Both boxers were hesitant to throw and tried to feint the other into firing first. Rosado landed some good shots to the body and seemed to win the first round. 

In the following round, Melikuziev tried to provoke Rosado into attacking first, but he responded with jabs while Melikuziev landed a right hook.

Melikuziev continued to hit Rosado with jabs to the body and a left to the head, while Rosado tried a left hook to the body.

Melikuziev landed right and left hands to the body, while Rosado began to use his jab. Rosado attempted to counter with a right hand but was unsuccessful.

Melikuziev kept up his relentless assault on Rosado, utilizing counter lefts and a powerful left hand that rocked him back.

This domination continued at the halfway point, as Melikuziev landed jabs to the body followed by a right hook, while Rosado struggled to defend and had his head snapped back by a jab. 

Melikuziev’s attack persisted, including right hooks, with his straight lefts proving particularly effective. Despite Rosado’s attempts to fight back with left hooks, Melikuziev continued to land blows to the head and body.

The Uzbek fighter lost his mouthpiece briefly but resumed his attack with left hands to the head and body, while Rosado struggled to land his own punches.

Rosado’s team knew there was no answer but to look for that right hand to finish the bout, just like their first bout.

But it was to no avail as two big shots rocked Rosado, as the bell went with Melikuziev walking away with a unanimous decision. 

Victory now leaves Rosado questioning whether it was time for him to hang up his gloves.
