“It was not the apocalyptic display of destruction that white-knuckled enthusiasts of the next big thing anticipated. The protracted and gory assault middleweight Gennady Golovkin subjected Gabriel Rosado to on Saturday night at The Theater in Madison Square Garden was almost understated. Expectations of decapitation, of stiff limbs and heaving chests, silent crowds, and chilling recumbence went unfulfilled. Indeed Rosado, a heavy underdog, never even suffered a knockdown. And yet, despite the absence of such drama, the fight—which Golovkin won by TKO in the seventh round—spoke loudly to the very real danger he represents.”
