Rolando Romero will challenge World Boxing Association (WBA) lightweight champion Gervonta Davis next Saturday, May 28 in the main event to be held at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
The Cuban-American fighter was in a public training session this Tuesday and talked about what he expects from the fight. Although he does not start as a favorite against one of the best fighters of today, as Davis is, he is confident in his power to get a knockout.
“One round. He knocked him out. If I say I’m going to do it, then I’m going to do it,” said the former interim champion during his interview with the press present at the gym.
“He’s going to get hit by the first punch he eats. He’s going to hit something. I always feel good whenever I’m going into a fight. I don’t like “Tank” as a person and I think he’s going to get whipped in this fight,” he continued.
Romero assured that he has the power to take down Gervonta and that he has been waiting for the fight for a long time, so he doesn’t want to waste the opportunity he will have.
The 26-year-old fighter was the interim champion before the start of the WBA world title reduction plan and that is why he earned the right to challenge the champion Davis in this bout.
