Quillin successfully defends his Crown against a game Rosado

October 26, 2013



Coming in to this fight, like many, I felt that Rosado-Quillin should had been the night’s main event. Looking at both pugilist, they both had what it takes to make an exceptional fight. Quillin is an “animal,” no doubt, and Rosado, well what can we say about Gabe, a poster boy of what a true fearless warrior is. Aside from their boxing abilities, this fight was also a clash of islands, meaning Cuba vs Puerto Rico Classic. In all fairness, even with how the fight ended, it lived to its expectations.

Both fighters came to this fight with a huge deal of respect for one another, and both fought a smart fight. For the most part, Rosado was too cautious, where as Quillin had his boxing IQ on point. Rosado for the most part of the fight was the aggressor, however, missed a lot, and Quillin made him pay. However, Rosado did catch him in the 3rd and really hurt Quillin. He was the first to do so.

Surprisingly, Rosado was able to pressure Quillin into the ropes, and land nice shots, but to no avail as Quillin was the most superior fighter at the end. The fight came to an unfortunate end for Rosado’s case, in the 10th round when he suffered a nasty cut on his eye lid. The cut came about from Quillin’s shots and finally opened it up by a nice counter jab.

As a fan, it is easy to say that the fight was prematurely stopped, but when you put things in perspective, and considering the tragic event that took place a week ago in Cabo, when Frankie Leal passed away two days later after suffering a knockout, it’s understanding that a fighters health is the most important thing in our sport. Did Rosado complain or looked hurt? No. Did the cut seem to impede Rosado from competing? No, not at the moment. Could he had continue at least one more round? Sure! He’s a warrior, but the officials on ring side thought differently, and at the end of the day the right call was made.

Both, Qullin and Rosado, are fan favorites, no dout, and a rematch between the two, in my opinion is a must. Let’s make it happen!
