Main Event Preview: Gervonta Tank Davis

Gervonta 'Tank' Davis (26-0) is the WBA “regular” lightweight world champion, but a lesser title doesn’t tell the real story of this exciting and powerful fighter. Davis has earned his nickname due to the cannon in his arms — he's won his bouts with powerful knockout punches time after time. Twenty-four of his twenty-six professional fights have ended in knockouts. He’s become a star in the sport with his viral highlight-reel finishes. Fans are always watching and waiting to see what amazing feat Davis will perform next.

As real as Davis’ talent and stardom are, his title doesn’t shine as bright as he does. The WBA has a Super Champion at Lightweight — George Kambosos Jr. Next weekend, Kambosos will fight Devin Haney to crown an undisputed world champion, so Davis won’t soon be in the mix for those titles. It’s only a matter of time before Davis is a true world champion again and the title holders need him more than he needs them. Davis will have a great opportunity to demand legacy-making fights against big-name opponents if he takes care of business here against Romero.

Main Event Preview: Rolly Romero

Rolando “Rolly” Romero (14-0) is a unique challenger for Davis, as the two fighters have a lot in common. Like Davis, Romero is an undefeated young fighter who made a name for himself fighting on undercards of big-name fighters. Also, he shares Tank’s power, with twelve of his fourteen wins ending in knockouts. The two fighters also share a history of accusations and legal issues. Davis has had a string of assault and domestic violence charges, and Romero faced several disturbing allegations of sexual assault last fall. 

Romero was originally supposed to fight Tank Davis last December, but he was removed from the fight due to the controversy. No charges were ever filed against him, so now Romero is ready for the biggest fight of his light. With a shot to take down a huge name and win his first world title, Romero has much more than just a puncher's chance at victory.

Gervonta Davis vs Rolando Romero prediction

Gervonta Davis is a heavy favorite to win this fight at -1000 odds.

Romero has a much greater chance to win this fight than he is being given and I believe he will give Davis trouble early. However, the prediction is Davis, by knockout, in the late rounds — 10th through 12th.
