Could Undisputed Champion Rolly Romero be More Probable than Not?

In many ways, lightweight boxer Rolando “Rolly” Romero (14-0, 12 KO’s) is heading into the biggest fight of his life. On May 28, he will slide through the ropes to flip Regular WBA lightweight champion Gervonta Davis off his throne. For Romero, the prizefight will represent his biggest stage, biggest professional payday and first pay-per-view performance. Of course, the cocky and self-sure pugilist is betting on himself to win the day. If he is indeed successful in this endeavor, then the Las Vegas native would certainly shake up the division.

Provided that he did prevail over Davis then Romero would be crowned the new Regular WBA 135-pound champion. This is significant because on June 5, WBC lightweight champion Devin Haney will collide with WBA Super, IBF and WBO lightweight champion George Kambosos for undisputed. That is meaningful for the Davis versus Romero winner because of the initiative that the WBA is undertaking.


The WBA has already announced and launched their plans to whittle down their excess champions until they have only one per division. Therefore, following their next matches, the winners of Haney versus Kambosos and Davis versus Romero will be the last two belt holders in the division. So, if the WBA remains true to their own self-imposed directive, it should not take long to get those winners in the ring to consolidate all the titles at 135.

Even now, Romero has crafted himself into a very infamous figure in the boxing world. Rarely caught at a loss for words, Rolly is extremely comfortable in front of the camera and ready to storm the grand public at large. Beating someone of the stature that Tank has acquired, on a ppv program no less, would be a huge feather in his cap. Also the fight versus the Kambosos versus Haney victor would almost certainly be a huge pay-per-view event as well.

Therefore, no matter how many think that Rolly has no chance, or is unskillful, he is right on the precipice of accomplishing some historical achievements. The big question is, as it always is, can Romero actually pull it off in the ring? Lucky for us, we don’t have that long to wait to find out!
