Rolly Romero looking sharp for Gervonta Davis fight on May 28th
By Jeff Aronow: #1 WBA mandatory contender Rolando ‘Rolly’ Romero (14-0, 12 KOs) is perfecting his power shots in readiness to deliver a knockout blow against WBA ‘regular’ lightweight titleholder Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis (26-0, 24 KOs) on May 28th on Showtime PPV.
With two months to go before the May 28th fight, Rolly is working hard with his training team to fine-tune his game and focus on his power to take out the unbeaten Tank Davis.
For Gervonta’s sake, he’d better be training hard because Rolly is preparing like a demon with his team. Rolly looks like a fighter possessed, intent on destruction on May 28th.
Rolly’s power game key to success
Above all, Rolly and his training team realize that their best shot at defeating the easy-to-hit Gervonta, 27, is to focus on his power game to target his head.
Although Tank has power and excellent hand speed, his defense is a vestigial part of his game. Like the useless arms of a T-Rex, Tank Davis’ defense is woefully inadequate.
It would be a good idea for Gervonta and his trainer to work overtime on their defense to get geared up for this contest because the talented Cuban Rolando hits too hard for him to be getting nailed repeatedly.
With the amount of shots Tank Davis took in his last fight, he’s not going to be able to survive for long, with Rolly landing similar punches on May 28th.
The only fight of Tank’s career in which he showed any semblance of ability to defend himself was in his last contest against Isaac ‘Pitbull’ Cruz. The only reason for that was because Gervonta suffered a right-hand injury.
Rolando hit the jackpot
Rolly, 26, hit the jackpot this week with his previously scheduled fight with Tank Davis being revealed for May 28th at a still to be determined venue.
With the money that Rolly will make from the Gervonta fight, he’ll be able to purchase a house for his mother. Recently, Rolly said he had planned on buying his mom a home with the money he would get or the Tank Davis fight last December. Now that the battle has been rescheduled, Rolly can accomplish his goal.
A victory for Rolly over Tank Davis would mean millions and set up a rematch on Showtime PPV that would attract a lot of attention.
Last December, Rolly had been on the verge of a title shot against Tank Davis, only to have the rug pulled out from under him after damaging sexual allegations surfaced.
Rolly was quickly pulled from the December 5th Showtime PPV fight against Gervonta and replaced by Issac ‘Pitbull’ Cruz. It was a massive disappointment for boxing fans having Rolly replaced, but thankfully the fight has now been rescheduled.
Tank has the experience and the boxing skills in his favor and will likely have the crowd on his side.
