Rosado looking to do damage to Daniel Jacobs
Ahead of his prizefight with Daniel “The Miracle Man” Jacobs (36-3, 30 KO’s), “King” Gabriel Rosado (25-12-1, 14 KO’s) has his mind set on pain. While he feels a win can come by decision, he aims to place a beating on Jacobs to win by stoppage. None of this should come as a great revelation. The two have shared a very public dislike for one another for a number of years. Now they will finally get to voice their displeasure with their fists.
“My focus in this camp is what I can do, I’m not going to fight at Danny’s pace. I’m focused on dictating the pace of the fight. So, my intention is to hurt him. I feel that I have to go into this fight, in order to win, I have to win decisively and I think that I have to hurt him.”
“It’s not a fight that I want to go into and try to score points and try to finesse things or anything like that. It’s a fight where you got to get to work! In order to get this win, you are going to have to go to work…I don’t think that I have to knock him out but my intention is to knock him out.”
RESPECT THY ENEMY
Just because Rosado does not care for the Miracle Man as a person does not mean that he is sleeping on his boxing skills. As the Philly native told to IFL TV, he is well aware that he will need to be on point come fight night.
“You know I have to be the best Gabriel Rosado on the 27. You know Danny Jacobs is a strong guy, he’s fast. I wouldn’t say he is a knockout artist but he does pack a punch. So I have to be at my best, and I think a lot of it just comes in with experience.”
With only a little more than a week to go until fight night, this rivalry is almost at its thrilling conclusion. Will Rosado make good on his word to put a hurting on the Miracle Man? Or will Jacobs collect another scalp in the ring? The only way to find out is to tune in!
