Davis vs. Romero fight card
Gervonta Davis (c) vs. Rolando Romero for the WBA (Regular) lightweight title
Erislandy Lara (c) vs. Gary "Spike" O'Sullivan for the WBA (Regular) middleweight title

"Tank" has become one of boxing biggest stars since signing with Mayweather Promotions, racking up an undefeated 26-0 (24 KOs) career record. After weeks of outlandish trash talk, he'll be keen to show his class against a larger opponent who has promised to "knock him out" in round one.
The fight was original set for December last year but No.1 ranked contender Romero was the subject of an assault case and replaced by Isaac Cruz. Davis dispatched Cruz by unanimous decision, and the case against Romero was dropped, clearing the way for Saturday's 12-round title bout at the legendary Barclays Center.
There's plenty of action elsewhere on the card, too. Keep an eye out for the co-main event, a mouthwatering middleweight clash featuring Erislandy Lara vs Gary "Spike" O’Sullivan.

Gervonta Davis defends the WBA (Regular) lightweight title against Rolando Romero on May 28. Inside the Barclays Center in New York, the two will finally get their hands on one another.
Davis made his pro debut in 2013. Winning the IBF super-featherweight title in 2017, Davis lost the title that year after missing weight for a fight against Francisco Fonseca. In 2018, Davis won the WBA (Super) super-featherweight title, and then became WBA (Regular) lightweight champion against Yuriorkis Gamboa in 2019.
Against Leo Santa Cruz in October 2020, Davis won via knockout to win the WBA (Super) super-featherweight title. Moving divisions again, Davis beat Mario Barrios to win the WBA (Regular) super-lightweight title. His last fight was in December, beating Isaac Cruz to retain the WBA (Regular) lightweight title.
Romero made his pro debut in 2016. He won the interim WBA lightweight title in August 2020 against Jackson Marinez. In his last bout in July, Romero faced Anthony Yigit. The interim title was not on the line because Yigit missed weight. Romero beat him in the seventh round via TKO.
The WBA first ordered the fight last year, and the animosity’s only grown since then as the pair traded snipes on social media and throughout the promotional build up. The pair boasts a combined 90 percent knockout rate in 40 fights, so we can expect the in-ring action to be every bit as vitriolic.
The PPV lineup also includes another WBA title fight between Middleweight “world” champion Erislandy Lara and Irish tough guy Spike O’Sullivan, as well as a pair of intriguing battles at 154- and 130-pounds that see Jesus Ramos attempt to avenge uncle Abel’s loss to Luke Santamaria and Eduardo Ramirez trade hands with recent upset artist Luis Melendez.
