What time is Tank fighting tonight? Live stream info, start time, how to watch Gervonta Davis vs. Rolly Romero
The feud between Gervonta Davis and Rolando Romero is as real as it gets. All forms of slander and offensive comments came out of their respective mouths when they spoke to each other.
Knockout artists will finally let their fists do the talking tonight as Davis defends the WBA (regular) lightweight title against Romero from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY
Davis and Romero were scheduled to face each other in December. But Romero was the subject of a sexual assault case and was later pulled from the fight and replaced by Isaac Cruz. The deal was later dropped, which paved the way for Romero to get the fight he was looking for.
Cruz gave ‘Tank’ a tougher fight than expected. But when all was said and done, Davis showed championship heart in the 12th and final round to win by unanimous decision. The 27-year-old finally manages to settle the score and seeks to silence all talk once and for all.
“We’re ready and we’ve been to camp,” Davis said at their press conference in April. “It’s not the first time we’ve prepared for ‘Rolly’. We saw how he got choked up when the lights were on his face. We’ll see how he reacts when everyone cheers him on the night of the fight.”
On the other hand, Romero competed twice in 2021 and won both inside distance against Avery Sparrow and Anthony Yigit. For Romero, this is the opportunity he was looking for and which he intends to take advantage of.
“I think ‘Tank’ is an amazing fighter, but this will be the easiest fight of my career,” Romero said. “It will say a lot about my legacy when I take him down. ‘Tank’ gets a lot of punches. I think he’s going to come up against something big.”
