On Saturday night, rising star Gervonta "Tank" Davis returns to the ring to take on bitter rival Rolando Romero with Davis' secondary WBA championship on the line. It's a showdown between two of the hardest pound-for-pound punchers in the sport.
Davis has knocked out 24 of his 26 opponents as a professional while Romero has also only gone to decision twice in his 14 career fights. Both men are undefeated and will be looking to pick up the win and move on to even bigger things, including a potential future showdown with the winner of the undisputed lightweight championship fight between George Kambosos Jr. and Devin Haney in Australia this June.

Gervonta Davis and Rolly Romero finally square off tonight.
The feud between Gervonta Davis and Rolando Romero is as real as it gets. Every form of trash talk and offensive comments have come out of their respective mouths when talking about one another.
The knockout artists will finally let their fists do the talking tonight as Davis defends the WBA (regular) lightweight title against Romero from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Davis and Romero were set to lock horns in December. But Romero was the subject of a sexual assault case and was subsequently pulled from the fight and replaced by Isaac Cruz. The case was later dropped, which cleared the way for Romero to get the fight he's been looking for.
Cruz gave 'Tank' a more challenging fight than many expected. But when it was all said and done, Davis showed championship heart in the 12th and final round to win by unanimous decision. The 27-year-old finally gets to settle the score and looks to quiet all the talking once and for all.
“We’re ready, and we’ve been in camp," Davis said at their press conference in April. "This isn’t our first time getting ready for ‘Rolly’. We saw how he choked up when the lights are in his face. We’ll see how he reacts when everyone is cheering against him on fight night."
On the other hand, Romero competed two times in 2021 and won both of those inside the distance over Avery Sparrow and Anthony Yigit. For Romero, it's the opportunity he's been looking and one he plans on taking advantage of.
“I think ‘Tank’ is an amazing fighter, but this is going to be the easiest fight of my career," Romero said. "It’s going to say a lot about my legacy when I knock him out. ’Tank’ gets punched a lot. I think he’s going to run right into something big."
