Amazing KO. Rosado was hurt in the first but Bek started swinging pretty wide trying to finish him off. Rosado timed him beautifully for one of the best KOs in boxing this year. I thought Bek was promising but I guess we'll see how he responds to this loss.

I think this was a somewhat similar scenario to Whyte vs Povetkin, that obviously wasn't anywhere near as big of an upset as this, but like that, it's obviously not a case of a lucky punch, it's a case of one fighter seeming to be in full control of the fight, and a veteran who is up against it, losing the fight, using his experience and setting up a great KO.

I can see the similarity for sure, although I think Rosado is actually having some of the best performances of his career unlike Povetkin who was very close to retirement.

Good point, Povetkin wasn't shot before he fought Whyte as he was in the rematch, but he was clearly past his prime even against Hunter and earlier, I think Rosado is in his prime, has come of age, he lives the life, and I don't think he has as many miles as he seems to because most of his stoppage losses have been on cuts, he had a great finish against Sulecki, and did well to make it so close against Jacobs even given Jacobs's poor recent form. I think the Rosado rematch is great for Melikuziev, but Rosado doesn't need it, hopefully he gets a big opportunity.
