“KING’ GABRIEL ROSADO, MIDDLEWEIGHT CONTENDER
“Freddie has taught me to be disciplined, sticking to game plan, and everyday getting better and better.
“I define this fight as a historical fight, a legacy fight. This fight will go down in the history books, featuring two latino: a Mexican warrior and a Puerto Rican warrior. We are gonna clash and the fans will win.
“This fight means everything, this is the reason why I got with Freddie. It was to take it to the next level. I have always had the skill, have always had the ability, but I knew that for me to take it to that world class level I had to get with a trainer that knows what it takes to get there, guide me there, lead me there. Getting with Freddie is just bringing out the best of me.
“I feel like I am still 25, I feel great, I am blessed, I am healthy. In this fight he is the younger guy and I understand what it means to be the younger fighter. But I need to use my experience and my boxing ability to make him pay for his mistakes.
“You can teach a lot, but you can’t teach experience. I feel like I have fought the tougher fighters so I definitely have experience on my side. Like I said, I am healthy, I am strong. I am not fading. I am just getting better.
