The latest fighter to rule out a Deontay Wilder victory against Tyson Fury on July 24th is Gabe Rosado.
Fresh off his stunning upset knockout win over Bektemir Melikuziev last weekend, the Philadelphia veteran was the special guest on The DAZN Boxing Show where he was grilled by Ak and Barak on the imminent WBC heavyweight title clash.
Fury takes on Wilder for a third time after spending much of the year engaged in back-and-forth negotiations with representatives of Anthony Joshua in pursuit of a unification match with his domestic rival.
- Does Dillian Whyte deserve to skip Otto Wallin and advance straight to Tyson Fury title fight?
- Ronnie Shields or Eddy Reynoso, who is the better trainer for Anthony Joshua?
- Tournaments would put boxing in a much healthier position and expand the sport's fanbase
- Anthony Joshua could 'quite possibly' change trainers, says Eddie Hearn
An independent arbiter ruled that Wilder was entitled to a rematch with Fury following their 2020 meeting that was emphatically won by the Brit. Rosado is expecting the trilogy encounter to go the same way.
“I like Wilder, but I think Fury got his number, said Rosado. “You know, I think he's in his head. You know, and I think it'd be another devastating knockout, man. You know, I think he could stop Wilder again.
“I think Wilder's going into the fight with the wrong energy, I'm saying he was quiet at the press conference. I think he just needs to focus on if he really wants to get this win.
"Stop coming up with all these speculations. If you think this happened, and this happened, and this happened, and it's like, you know, it's kind of it's kind of crazy”
