Davis was last in action against Isaac Cruz in December, winning a 12-round decision in what was a fairly competitive fight.
Tank’s original opponent, however, was supposed to be Romero, who was pulled from the fight due to allegations of sexual assault.
But the unbeaten boxer was cleared after investigations surrounding the accusations were closed without charges being filed.
Romero is now back in training camp and ready to take on a fired up Davis, who is hellbent on knocking his rival out.
But Romero brings his own power as well, and will be gunning to cause a huge upset in the lightweight division.
Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis will be back under the lights this weekend as he defends his WBA lightweight title against Rolando Romero in New York.
Davis is unbeaten in his 26 professional bouts to date and has held multiple world crowns across three weight classes.
He beat Isaac Cruz by unanimous decision in Los Angeles last December and is now ready for his next clash. ‘Rolly’ Romero is also undefeated, claiming 14 straight wins and beating Anthony Yigit in his last bout. Romero is the main challenger to the WBA title and should prove to be a tough test for Davis.
