Coach Bullet Gordon Confident That Rolly Romero Stops Ryan Garcia
Newly crowned WBA junior welterweight champion Rolando “Rolly” Romero (15-1, 22KO) wants to fight Ryan Garcia or rematch multi-divisional champion Gervonta Davis. His trainer, Cromwell “Bullet” Gordon, is confident that Rolly will stop Garcia (23-1, 19KO)
The controversial stoppage that crowned Romero as champion over Ismael Barroso continues to be the talk of the weekend. During the post-fight interview, Rolly admitted that the fight shouldn’t have been stopped before calling out Davis and Garcia.
BULLET GORDON IS CONFIDENT ROMERO WOULD STOP GARCIA
During an interview with Fight Hub TV, Bullet revealed that they were supposed to fight Garcia in the past and he believes the fight wouldn’t go the distance.
“It was supposed to happen where we were supposed to fight Ryan Garcia before we fought Tank. But because of what happened in sparring and then everybody got comfortable with each other . . . that it’s not a good, smart fight for two young guys to take at that time.”
“Rolly is going to stop him. He just doesn’t have no defense.”
Gordon is one of the critics that questioned Garcia’s heart for not getting back up after being hit to the body against Davis on April 22. So, fans shouldn’t be surprised that he has a somewhat dismissive tone.
As previously mentioned by Gordon, the sparring session would be the main talking point during the build-up to the fight. However, Romero still has to deal with the WBA ordering a fight with top challenger Ohara Davies next.
Like it or not, Rolly is the champion and has the opportunity of possibly getting another big fight. It will be interesting to see what happens over the next couple of months.
