Gervonta vs Romero – Can ‘Rolly’ stop ‘Tank?

On Saturday night, one of the biggest boxing attractions will be back on the main stage when Gervonta “Tank” Davis faces Rolando “Rolly” Romero in a highly anticipated showdown in Brooklyn.

This Showtime PPV should’ve been held last December. But now, it is almost here with fight night scheduled for Barclays Center.

This build-up has been quite good. ‘Rolly’ has been working tirelessly to get into Gervonta head and sell the PVP. In less than 48 hours, we’ll know if he has achieved either.

Davis is one the brightest stars in a stacked lightweight Division right now (think George Kambosos Devin Haney Ryan Garcia Teofimo Lopez Vasyli Lomachenko, Ryan Garcia, Ryan Garcia), and he’s a monster at 135lbs.

Baltimore’s 27-year old pro fighter has compiled a perfect 26-0 record, with 24 of his victories coming within striking distance. Few fighters can pull off highlight-reel knockouts like this.

Gervonta is now on the verge of becoming a true megastar – he recently spoke out about leaving Mayweather Promotions to control his career. This could open the door to blockbuster fights with other titans of the 135lb weight category.

“Tank” is as cool as “Rolly” rants

From the histrionics seen in the countdown to the fight, one thing is clear: Davis is maturing quickly.

He said, “I don’t get emotional about Rolly’s words.” He explained that I was initially enthused, but then he made it clear that he is a hype man. He is trying to make himself look good so he can get in the fight. He’s acting fake at the moment. You can see that he has never been in such a position before.

“We will have to wait and watch what happens. He is predicting a knockout in the first round, but I am predicting something different. It’s going be a great fight, so make sure to buy the PPV and come out if possible.

“A lot fighters are fighting but they aren’t calling each other out.” He got to this point, and called me out. After all the trash he said, it’s now that the fight is actually happening. It will be great to have him on your resume.

Gervonta spoke of his growing maturity, explaining that he also has other people to look after now than himself.

“I feel like I’m learning as I follow this path. Every day I feel like I’m improving. I try to walk like a champion as well as fight like a champion. I have two wonderful daughters whom I am trying to raise, and I want to be the best person that I can.

“It’s going be a helluva fight. It’s going be fireworks, I know. He’s coming with lots of emotion and power, and I’m going with my power. It’s a dream come true. It’s going to be a huge night for boxing.

Romero giving the talk

Although ‘Tank’ may be the final article, Romero is an up-and-coming prospect and could become a star in the future. The 26-year old is 14-0 as an amateur with 12 wins within the distance.

He has been vocal this week about Gervonta’s opposition so far.

Look at his fight record. He has faced UK fighters, weight-drained men, 122 and126 pounders, as well as guys who are past their prime. Mario Barrios was weighed down for eight hours in a bathtub. Isaac Cruz was also my favorite.

“Davis didn’t show up twice to sparring when we agreed to it because he’s scared of my. He claims I am scared, but that man is afraid of me.

This feels great. It’s time that he joins me in the ring. This fight is what I was built for. This is not the case for everyone. Davis clearly isn’t made for this. Davis can’t even speak a word. “I’m the star here.”

These are big words and we will soon find out if Romero can back them up. Sky Bet has him as a 7/1 underdog while Davis is a prohibitive favorite at 1/20.

“Rolly” boasted that he would be knocked out in one round. He’s been knocked out in the gym several times. He can get wobbled, knocked down and suffers all kinds of pain. He is a terrible person.

“I’m going in there to beat him up. This is my only strategy. You can bet on me in this fight. Together, we’re going to be rich.”
