Five-time world champion Gervonta “Tank” Davis and unbeaten lightweight contender Rolando “Rolly” Romero went face-to-face Thursday at a press conference to preview their PPV showdown for Davis’ WBA lightweight championship on Sunday, December 5 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Gervonta Davis: “He’s been talking for a long time. He’s trying to sell a fight, but I’m going to show him that he’s a chump on December 5. I’m not here to talk, I’m here to fight. I don’t take this personally. To me, this isn’t beef, this is business.”

Rolly Romero: “He’s got such a big head, it’s going to be hard to miss it. He gets touched up by every opponent he faces. Leo Santa Cruz was beating him up and Barrios was getting to him too…everyone’s going to see December 5, I’m going to knock Gervonta the f*** out. I hope you hear that.”

  • Rolly will be rolling on the canvas. Dramatic KO or TKO, for The Tank.

    Speaketh … FJB.
    Fredrick J. Brandon III.

  • Must I remind everyone that Jackson Marinez beat the crap out of Romero for 12 rounds, and was seriously robbed. One of the worst decisions of 2020.

    Tank has never lost a pro fight. And he will not lose to this guy. Romero is going to get K.T.F.O.

    Speaketh … FJB.
    Fredrick J. Brandon III.

  • This is gonna be an exciting fight! Perhaps another knockout of the year candidate…

    • You know it. Rolly will get flattened in this one, not a chance, Tank is way too quick.

  • I hope Romero works on keeping up his hands or else Davis will counter him with utmost evil. Romero has to maintain a busy jab (especially on Davis’ right shoulder) to keep Davis from getting into a rhythm and/or to make Davis hesitate. In a smart manner, Romero should work his way into the pocket to create discomfort for Davis.

    Looking forward to this fight, and the fighters’ trash talking skills.

    • Gary G. On your firestick are you able to get the regular Showtine Championship Boxing, Shobox etc for free or do you subscribe to Showtime? Also do you get the DAZN or ESPN + fights or do you pay for those Apps? Thanks

  • Romero is your classic goof ball. After a non eventful 2 rounds, Tank will drop him to a knee from a right hook to the body. Not worth PPV whatsoever.

  • At least Rolly is selling this fight with his brash bravado. He may not have better boxing skills than Tank, but his verbal skills are creating an interest for the casual fan.

  • Rolly is a manufactured fighter. Hes marketing himself as a ko artist but he’s been taken the distance a few times and he’s not particularly heavy handed, his technique is bad and his speed is so-so. Hes racked up k.o.s because every punch he throws is a telegraphed haymaker. When he’s not swinging from the rafters he’s fouling his opponent. Also i believe he’s on PEDs. Typically you dont see that level of muscularity on such a small framed physique. His neck, wrists, joints are small – his build looks enhanced- manufactured. Now look at tank: his neck , fists, shoulders etc… a natural mesomorph. Rolly has bullied his way through 14 hand picked opponents and had shown serious flaws. Tank is dangerous. Rolly’s only chance is a wild punch that tank doesn’t see coming.

    I bet this kid gets seriously hurt early in this fight and if he survives he’ll resort to running, covering up, tieing up and fouling in order to do anything to go the distance or get DQ’d before he gets ko’d. And have the nerve to keep talking shit. A guy you love to hate – kind of like a mid career Macho Camacho but with less talent.

  • Rolly will probably lose though he may be able to rock him a few times. But I think tank is gonna get knocked out in one of his next fights against ? Because he’s already badly slurring his words & got no reflexes/defence at all.

    • Gotta say I agree with how tank has been talking with a ‘fat tongue’ more the last bit. That’s not a good sign for a young man like him.

  • If Rolly Romero had any chance of defeating Davis, Mayweather wouldn’t allowed him to get in the ring with Rolly. They have study all of Romero’s flaws. Remember Mayweather is all about avoiding financial losses or failure.

  • Gervonta’s close friend, Adrien Broner, was not at the press conference. Rather, he was sitting in an orange jumpsuit in Cuyahoga County Jail in Cleveland for multiple probation violations. It remains to be seen if Broner will be out of jail in time for the December 5th fight.

  • I believe when you talk smack before you get in the ring with your opponent you will eat those words especially being a tough guy Tank is going to remember everything that he said and give him a good Wupin lol this is going to be a great fight can’t wait

  • Remember Muhammad Ali talked a good one his first fight with Frazier and u see what happened Rolly better be ON POINT December 5th
