Arias is back in action for the first time since losing out on points to Daniel Jacobs in New York last November, siting a huge blister as the cause of him having to adopt a defensive approach against the now-IBF World champion who handed him a first career loss in his 19th fight.
When ‘Cuba’ and Rosado met in a press conference to announce the fight in the Big Apple, the pair exchanged harsh words on their respective career – with Rosado’s ‘bitch’ jibe a counter to Arias pointing out the number of losses and KO’s the Philadelphian has suffered – and a $10,000 wager being laid on the bout.
The pair will talk for one final time at tomorrow’s press conference in Wichita and Arias expects to hear more of the same, but he’s ready to prove that doubters wrong and show the Jacobs loss has made him a stronger fighter. “That's his only stab at me to say that I ran like a bitch against Jacobs,” said Arias. “But I didn't get KO'd. He's had two feet against plenty of guys and got KO'd, beaten up badly. I had a little scratch on my face after the Jacobs fight. “I was physically and mentally ready for the fight and I believed I would win. I made a rookie mistake with my footwear and I learned a lesson the hard way. “The fact that I was able to get out of that fight against a 190lbs guy with just a scratch, it shows I can compete with the best and it's time to get my things in order and really prove that I can hang with all the top guys. “I am putting pressure on myself to erase the bad taste I left last time, that's the task this weekend. I need to prove that I am not a little bitch. It may have looked like I ran like one but I am not - I had to do that to survive and make the 12 rounds. I am a true warrior and I love the wars, I love to bang it out - I just wasn't physically capable of doing that in the Jacobs fight. “I left a sour taste in the mouths of the fans in the Jacobs

Saturday I walked into an arena full of people and picked you out immediately, even though it’s been about 3 years since I’ve actually seen you. You’ve been so special to me for so many years and I’m still so thankful for our friendship. We don’t get to talk often (because life is busy) but I know I can always count on you! You’ll always be my favorite fire fighter! #firefighteranddispatcher#friends#efcfight#kansasstararena @316fire
