WBA Orders Gervonta Davis to Fight Rolando Romero
WBA Interim lightweight titlist Rolando “Rolly” Romero (14-0, 12ko) literally watched his career slowly fading away when accusations of sexual misconduct put everything in jeopardy. Now a free man to fight again, the WBA has pulled him off life support and ordered the fight with WBA Regular champion Gervonta “Tank” Davis (26-0, 24ko).
A CAREER IN JEOPARDY
In October 2021, Romero was on the brink of fighting in a high-profile fight against Tank, before he was pulled from the card after numerous women came forward with jaw-dropping allegations levied towards him. The seriousness of the accusations was too much for Showtime to turn a blind eye to. Immediately, Romero got pulled from the fight, and his career was placed in a state of uncertainty. Davis had to settle for victory over replacement fighter Isaac “Pitbull” Cruz in a tough twelve-round battle.
Despite being removed from the card, Romero attended the fight and was very unimpressed with Davis’ performance.
“The thing is if he [Davis] had been in the ring with me, he would have gotten knocked the fuck out!”
However, he started growing frustrated while sitting on the sideline waiting for the process to play out. He took to social media claiming that he may walk away from the sport he loves.
“I might just quit boxing for real. This sport is all bullshit. They just never wanted to see Rolly succeed, and that’s the truth.”
Furthermore, many inside the boxing community had basically written him off as a vile individual and were not interested in seeing him fight again.
A SECOND CHANCE
The red line on Rolly’s career was starting to go flat. That is, until Romero revealed that after three and a half months, the investigation was finally closed with no charges filed. He was a free man.
Feeling jubilated the flashy hard-punching Las Vegas native took to social media with a message for everyone, that was against him the moment the accusations dropped.
“I am innocent […] Now all you hating mf’ can suck my fat black [cock].”
Well, it seems more good news has come down the pipe. The WBA has ordered Davis to revisit the fight with Romero. Furthermore, they have given both teams a deadline date of February 24 to wrap up a deal. Of course, being a social media hawk, Rolly took a shot at his arch-rival.
