Rolly Romero Sends A Strong Message To Golden Boy

WBA junior welterweight champion Rolando “Rolly” Romero (15-1, 13KO) wants Golden Boy Promotions to know that he was paid handsomely to fight one time lightweight title challenger Isaac “Pitbull” Cruz (25-2-1, 17KO).

Rolly was on the verge of fighting Ryan Garcia, who changed direction to fight WBC champ Devin Haney. Romero got revenge by announcing a fight with Cruz, when Garcia tried to double back to make the fight.

The WBA champion disagreed with the notion that Garcia was the A-side. The people at Golden Boy Promotions feel he made the wrong decision and would have earned more money fighting Garcia.


While speaking with Fight Hub TV, Rolly expressed that he was very well compensated.

“Al Haymon [is] where all the money is at. Why am I going to fight on a shitty ass platform when I can grow Amazon Prime . . . You’re going to tell me that I made the wrong decision – no. Al made me a beautiful offer, and like I said, they could go fuck themselves . . . Al Haymon gave me a better deal.”

Rolando Romero

Premier Boxing Champions would’ve been foolish to let Romero fight on another network after signing a deal with Prime. The first priority will be to help grow the business on the new platform.

In this author’s opinion, it was a smart move by Romero, who needs to erase the controversial stoppage he received against Ismael Barroso from boxing fans’ memory. In addition, Cruz is a live dog with an aggressive, fan-friendly style and possesses the power to win the fight.

Boxing fans can catch all the action live on Amazon Prime pay-per-view, on March 30.
