Rolando Romero Calls the Power of Davis into Question; Promises a KO

By now, everyone has heard the story of lightweight Rolando “Rolly” Romero (14-0, 12 KOs), who was pulled out of the biggest fight of his career against three-division champion Gervonta “Tank” Davis (26-0, 24 KOs). The rug was snatched from underneath Romero after news of sexual misconduct surfaced in 2021. He is now set to face Tank again and aims at the punching power of his arch-rival.

In 2021, Romero’s allegations of sexual misconduct prevented the first fight from taking place between the two fighters. He had to wait out the process in hopes of clearing his name. Rolly’s patience paid off as no charges were brought against him, and he went to social media to express vindication.


Romero maintained the number one ranking with the WBA. Now with his legal issues in the rearview, the fight with Davis will take place on May 28.

These two fighters will finally settle their differences in the ring, providing there are no hiccups this time around. The rivalry between these two goes back to their early days at the Mayweather Boxing Gym. During an interview on The Last Stand Podcast, the always-confident fighter called Davis’ punching power into question.

“I don’t think he’s [Davis] is as big of a puncher as people think. I think he just bullies a bunch of small dudes and weight drained opponents like [Jose] Pedraza and [Mario] Barrios and small dudes like [Leo] Santa Cruz a torn Achilles [Yuriorkis] Gamboa […]”

“So, I don’t think he’s that big of a puncher, I think he’s just explosive against these people that just stand there in front of him, and they’re smaller than him. So, I mean it’s only obvious that he’s going to knock them out.”

When asked to finish the statement of what he will do on the designated fight date of May 28, Romero’s response will probably raise a few eyebrows.

“Knock Tank the fuck out, become a superstar, and then go to the strip club and throw a bunch of ones.”
