Via Dan Ambrose: Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis (26-0, 24 KOs) and Rolando ‘Rolly’ Romero (14-0, 12 KOs) have agreed a deal to meet in two months from now on May 28 on Showtime pay-per-view in their rescheduled contest.
Kt Rolly confidently beat Tank after adding him last November, saying he is “Fuck a**” and feel “poor” for him. While Rolly isn’t as skilled as Gervonta, he is ahead of him in terms of strength and size.
With Rolly’s 5’8″ punching power and 3-inch height advantage, he has a good chance of knocking out Tank Davis on May 28.
The Tank’s Ultimate Rival Isaac ‘Pitbull’ Cruz, lay hands on him, coming close to victory in their recent fight. In the end, Tank secured a unanimous 12th round win over Pitbull, but it was almost razor-sharp at the last minute. The judges scored 115-113, 115-113 and 116-112.
WBA ‘regular’ lightweight champion Tank Davis, 27, and kt Rolly are scheduled to meet on December 5 on Showtime PPV at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Unfortunately for Rolly, 26, he had to withdraw from the fight after sexual assault allegations surfaced. Those allegations cannot be proven, and now, Rolly has been cleared and is ready to continue her successful career.
The tank and Rolando Romero made the deal on May 28
“Source: Gervonta Davis and Rolly Romero have agreed to a lightweight match on May 28 on Showtime PPV. The WBA ordered the Tank-Romero in January, a month after they were scheduled to fight,” Mike Coppinger.
“I will take down Tank, and I’m going to be the number 1 boxer in the world,” Rolly Romero told Fighthype. “You will see this. People can say I’m the greatest. ”
The fan reaction to the match between the Tank and kt Rolly was mostly unfavorable, as they didn’t feel Rolando had any chance of winning.
Furthermore, people felt that kt Rolly did not earn the right to challenge Gervonta for his WBA title. They claim this is yet another example of a Mayweather Promotions internal bout featuring two boxers in their cage.
With Floyd Mayweather Jr publicly revealing to the media that his plan with Gervonta was for him to only fight internally with fellow Mayweather Promotions and PBC boxers, it was decided to fight him against kt Rolly is a predictable move.
Boxing fans want to see Mayweather Promotions fight Tank Davis with fighters outside their cages, such as Devin Haney, Ryan Garcia, George Kambosos Jr. and Vasyl Lomachenko.
You can’t rule out a win for kt Rolly in this Tank match because of his strength and clumsy fighting style.
Rolly is like a runaway M60 machine gun at times with the way he takes down opponents. You can’t stop Rolly once he starts shooting.
Coach Salas talks Gervonta vs. Rolly
Cuban coach Ismael Salas said: “One thing I believe in boxing is that one punch will avoid disaster. Fighthype when asked if Rolly Romero can beat Gervonta Davis.
“One thing I can also tell you. Davis is a real hard puncher. He is a KO punch [artist]. Rolly has more power in his punches, but he’s more aggressive. But, of course, if Rolly does the right thing with Davis, perhaps one punch will get out of the way.
“But if you weigh [compare] Rolly and Davis, Davis has a better background. He’s a very, very strong fighter, but I wish them both the best. Rolly, you know, we’ve been together for a while, and he’s a really tough fighter.
“When he was a teenager, we used to work in Bones Adam’s gym. He was with us, and then he signed up with Mayweather [Promotions], and then he went to Mayweather’s gym. Fine,” said Salas.
