Rolly Romero on Tank Davis: “He’s terrified of me”
By Brian Webber: Rolando ‘Rolly’ Romero believes Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis’ decision to push him off the stage was an outward display of the fear that he has inside, knowing what’s in store for him on Saturday night in their bout at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
WBA ‘regular’ lightweight champion Tank (26-0, 24 KOs) came unglued during Friday’s weigh-in when he suddenly out of the blue shoved Rolly (14-0, 12 KOs) off the stage when he was being cheered by the fans, who were seemingly eating out of his hand.
Rolly had the crowd fully supporting him, which was strange because he’s the challenger taking on the pay-per-view star Tank Davis. It was almost as if the roles were reversed and he was the PPV star and Tank the challenger.
It had to have been a bitter pill for Tank to swallow listening to the fans cheering Rolly while they were on stage together. Was that the reason Tank chose to push him off the stage? Only Tank knows for sure, but it did look that way.
“The mother f**** pushed me, it’s as simple as that,” said Rolly Romeroto Premier Boxing Champions in being interviewed moments after being pushed off the stage by Gervonta Davis.
“He’s scared, I’m an alpha compared to him. I could have f*** up the fight, twisted an ankle, or some s***, and the fight is over. I’ve got some crazy a** reflexes,” said Rolly when asked how he was able to keep from getting injured.
“Then he’s going to run behind somebody. He’s scared, you should have seen the look in his eyes. He knows I’m going to knock him out. He’s terrified of me.
“I’ve got to explore a little bit in his mind. I know all his insecurities. I know everything about him. The boy is punch drunk. He shouldn’t be fighting.
“Did he pass his CAT scan and s***? That’s if his stomach doesn’t hurt. He’s on his menstrual cycle, you know?” said Rolly when told that he can at least fight Tank Davis on Saturday.
“Everybody in this place loves me. They [Team Tank Davis] better love me because I’m making them all this money. He broke,” said Rolly about Gervota.
When asked how he’ll feel when walking out in front of the large crowd at the Barclays Center on Saturday, Rolly said, “Good. I don’t pay attention to all of that s***. I just go in there and beat the f*** out of whoever is in front of me.
“I’m not going to pick up my phone for anybody,” said Rolly when asked what he’ll say when he picks up the phone on Sunday morning after he defeats Tank Davis on Saturday night.
“I’m going to go on vacation and I ain’t going to take to nobody for a f*** week. You can hit me up after that. I’ve said it a million times. Just buy the pay-per-view.
“Y’all going to see that I’m a star in the f*** making. You’re going to see this young #1 ranked pound-for-pound fighter in the world, and y’all see Saturday night,” said Rolly.
