Gervonta Davis continued his reign over Boxing! I am kidding. Gervonta Davis, once again on Saturday night, beat another no-hoper as he continued to avoid any real competition in the Lightweight division. Davis has been around forever, and he is still yet to be in a big fight. Rolly Romero was a fight that was a foregone conclusion, so to sell it, they acted like they hated each other leading up to the battle to try to trick casual fans into buying a fight that should not have even been on regular ESPN. Romero was beaten a few fights ago but got a gift decision to keep alive his title hopes. Romero should not be fighting for any trinket as he is not even a top ten Lightweight. But as usual, Mayweather promotions gave us a crap undercard and Main Event that will probably be lucky to sell over 100K PPV buys. Check out the top sports betting sites for Boxing!
Romero won at least three of the first five rounds, but he did nothing special to win those rounds. At the end of the fight, the two Boxers had landed less than a combined 50 punches for all of the pre-fight comments about how they were going to War; it ended up to be nothing more than talk. This War had minimal action as Tank connected on 25 of 84 shots for a connect percentage of 30. For his part, Rolly landed 22 of 115 shots for a 19% connect rate.
Romero looked like the better fighter for the first five rounds, and Tank looked like a midget Deontay Wilder as he did little except land that one big blow. It’s great that he has power, but that power will only get you so far in a lightweight division that is top-heavy with talent.
Romero (14-1, 12 KOs) boasted to anyone who’d listen that he was going to KO Davis in the first round. Instead, Romero went the opposite direction against Davis by coming out trying to establish the jab. And that is what we saw from both guys as they were respectful of the other’s power. Not many punches were thrown, but as the fight was going on, Davis (27-0, 25 KOs) was getting closer to connecting with the left hand. When the sixth round came around, Davis had Romero figured out. The sixth was looking to be another close round. Romero leaned down and connected on a right to the body. But Romero left his head exposed, and that was all Davis needed as he released a left to finish things off. Check out the best bookmakers for betting on Boxing!
Probably more second rate opposition as he has made a career out of it. What should happen would be for Tank to fight the winner of Kombosos and Haney, but I doubt that’s in the cards for Tank; that would be too dangerous. The Lightweight division is stacked, and a fight with Lomochecko or Ryan Garcia would work also. Mayweather promotions have killed Tank Davis’s career, but unfortunately, I assume that will continue.
