Gerfonta “Tank” Davis and Rolando “Rully” Romero entered the ring at Barclays Center in New York on Saturday with unbeaten records and dozens of knockouts between them.
Davis, the ESPN men’s third lightweight welterweight, sought to defend his “regular” WBA title, while Romero battled for the world title for the first time in his career.
Before the match, Rowley was not shy about expressing how he felt about Tank. Davis stated that this would be the last fight in his multi-year deal with Mayweather Promotions.
“Floyd has done an amazing job with him,” Romero told ESPN. “Without Floyd, Gervonta Davis is nothing. He probably still has his skill set and all of that, you know. But in terms of marketing, he doesn’t have zero personality.
“He is not doing anything to help the sport of boxing,” he added.
The The tension between them was evident During their press conference before the fight.
When they finally met in the ring on Saturday, they exchanged blows for six rounds of a back-and-forth relationship.
In the end, Davis won by technical knockout.
TANK A BAD BOY!
