Quien quiera que le pusiese su apodo de «Bully» al uzbeko Bektemir Melikuziev 10(8KO)-1(1) acertó de lleno, ya que, por lo general, el púgil usa su ventaja en peso y dimensiones para atropellar a sus contrincantes (recordemos que dio un positivo en antidopaje por diuréticos). Su última víctima fue el modesto bosnio Sladan Janjanin 32(24KO)-12(8), que sucumbió en tres asaltos.

Con poco combate transcurrido Melikuziev puso de rodillas en la lona a su oponente con un gancho al torso, pasando a atosigar posteriormente a Janjanin con sus golpes curvos. Estos ataques Melikuziev, como siempre, los realizó descuidando gravemente su defensa, con las manos bajas o abriéndose totalmente, justamente lo que Gabriel Rosado explotó para noquearle.

Sea como sea, aunque sus fallos eran muy preocupantes, esto no tuvo mayores consecuencias ante un Janjanin centrado en intentar aguantar. Esto no lo logró, puesto que en el segundo asalto fue derribado por una combinación de hooks tras unos uppercuts diestros y en el tercer round fue llevado a la lona por golpes al cuerpo poco antes de que el tercer hombre decretase el final.

Este combate, como tantos otros organizados por Golden Boy Promotions, no tuvo sentido y no habrá servido a Melikuziev para otra cosa que acumular algo de moral. Con todo, pronto el uzbeko tendrá que afrontar una pugna significativa y, como no pueda imponer su potencia, podría volver a pasarlo mal.

«Bully» Melikuziev hasn’t learned from his loss to «King» Rosado

Dickies Arena, Fort Worth, United States. Super middleweight.

Whoever gave the nickname of «Bully» to the Uzbek Bektemir Melikuziev 10(8KO)-1(1) was completely right, since, in general, the fighter uses his advantage in weight and size to run over his opponents (let’s remember that he tested positive for diuretics). His last victim was the low-level Bosnian Sladan Janjanin 32(24KO)-12(8), who succumbed in three rounds.

With little time elapsed, Melikuziev brought his opponent to his knees with a hook to the body, later harassing Janjanin with his curved punches. Melikuziev carried out these attacks, as always, seriously neglecting his defense, with his hands low or opening his guard completely, precisely what Gabriel Rosado exploited to knock him out.

Be that as it may, although his mistakes were very worrying, this did not have major consequences against Janjanin, who was focused on trying to resist. He failed to achieve that objective, as in the second round he was knocked down by a combination of hooks (following some right uppercuts) and in the third round he was dropped by body shots shortly before the third man stopped the bout.

This fight, like so many others organized by Golden Boy Promotions, was pointless and will serve Melikuziev only to build up some morale. However, soon the Uzbek will have to face a significant match and, if he does not impose his power, he could have a very hard time again.
