Gervonta Davis Says Rolly is Not a Complete Bum, Just Leagues Below Him

On May 28, Regular WBA lightweight champion Gervonta “Tank” Davis (26-0, 24 KO’s) and Rolando “Rolly” Romero (14-0, 12 KO’s) will try to fight one another for the second time. Their first attempt was squelched by sexual misconduct allegations levied upon Romero. In the end, the finger-pointing faded to nothingness when no proof of the alleged activities could be provided. Yet, throughout both fight promotions, Davis has insisted that Rolly is vastly out of his league in the upcoming duel.

Tank is far from being in slim company in this belief. Virtually every professional boxer of note who has weighed in on the topic feels that Romero is indeed well out of his depth. Only time will tell if this pervasive sentiment is validated in the ring. Underneath it all though, Davis doesn’t view Rolly as a completely lost cause.

“His power, it’s his power. He’s got his own little awkward fight. We not going to say he is just a bum, but he is a bum to me! He got skills.”


In the sport of boxing though, it’s of vital importance to never overlook an opponent. So, from this angle Tank is mindful not to become overly dismissive of Rolly. Make no mistake though, there is no real love or goodwill here!

“He a bitch! That’s it, he a bitch. And that’s what it’s all about, showing people that think they are tough it’s always someone out there badder than you!”

Without question, the verbal warfare between these two fighters will only increase as the fight gets closer. So, stay tuned as these high-profile pugilists are sure to provide a great deal of memorable moments!
