Rosado breaks down the upcoming heavyweight rematch.
“Well, whatever (Wilder) said, it is what it is. But as far as him putting in the work, one thing I give him credit for is like he do got Malik Scott who is from Philadelphia as the head trainer. I definitely believe that’s gonna make a difference in coming with a better game plan ‘cause he has the athletic ability and now it’s just about putting it together (mentally).
“Wilder can do it, man. He’s got the experience, he’s fought a lot of good guys so he got the experience to come back and be strong. I think it just comes down to the game plan. Him and Malik gotta come up with a good strategy. One thing about Fury, he’s strong-minded, willpower — it’s hard to break a man down when you have to literally run over him with a bulldozer because you ain’t gonna break him mentally. So Wilder gotta bring his best game, man.”
“I think we’re gonna do (Jaime) Munguia, man. It’s the fight I like, it’s a fight he likes. I think it’s like one of those things where like we haven’t had that healthy rivalry between like Mexican and Puerto Rican fighter...I just know fighting him is going to be entertaining, it’s gonna be toe-to-toe action.
