Gervonta Davis vs. Rolando Romero
Davis and Romero have already been in a war or words. “He’s just worrying about power; he’s not working on anything else.” Davis said to the media, “They’re only plan is to knock me out. I hit him with one of these and I’m going to knock his whole nose off. They just keep talking about knockouts and trying to get me out of there early, because they know he can’t last down the line.”
Romero has very little respect for Davis. “Gervonta keeps talking about these skills and stuff, but I just see his face get swollen up every single fight.” Romero said to the media, “He doesn’t really have much skills, he just bullies a bunch of smaller opponents and weight drained opponents. He’s not that special and he’s gonna get knocked out.”
