It’s time for fight night once again in New York City, as the Barclays Center in Brooklyn will play host to four fights on Saturday night on Showtime PPV. Following the co-main event between middleweights Erislandy Lara and Spike O’Sullivan, Gervonta Davis -1100 will look to defend his WBA light belt against Rolando Romero +620.
Both undefeated, who will finally lose? Let’s take a closer look.
These odds were taken from FanDuel Sportsbook on May 26, 2022
Gervonta Davis (26-0, 24 KOs) vs. Rolando Romero (14-0, 12 KOs)
With 92.3% of his 26 professional fights coming inside the distance, “Tanks” Davis is a certified assassin and has shown his power in almost every fight he’s been in. Given the last fight we saw him in was one of his only decisions, I expect Davis to look to get his swagger back in this fight against a relatively inexperienced fighter in Romero, making the biggest walk of his career.
With legal issues pending and this the potential last time we see Davis inside a ring for some time, expect fireworks from one of the most elite boxers on the planet. Add in the fact there seems to be a genuine dislike between these two, and I expect this one to end before the final bell.
