WBA Orders Gervonta Davis Vs. Rolando Romerto f*ght

On Monday, the WBA ‘regular’ lightweight champion Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis has been ordered by the World Boxing a*sociation to begin negotiations with #1 ranked contender Rolando Romero.

The Gervonta Davis vs. Rolando Romero f*ght is expected to be shown on Showtime pay-per-view, which won’t make boxing fans happy because it’s NOT a PPV-worthy f*ght. Fans have to get used to it, though, because all of Tank Davis’ f*ghts are going to be on PPV until his career is over.

The negotiations have until February 24th before a purse bid is scheduled to take place.

For Mayweather Promotions, this news must make them quite happy, as Tank Davis and Romero (14-0, 12 KOs) are both signed with their company. It’ll be an in-house f*ght for Mayweather Promotions, so it’s a no-brainer for them. Sean Jones won’t be surprised if we see a rematch between Tank and Rolando, even if one isn’t needed.

It’s a win-win for Mayweather Promotions that Tank Davis and Rolando Romero will be meeting up on Showtime PPV.

Moreover, this was a f*ght they were expected to make anyway once the 26-year-old Romero was cleared of his recent s*xual a*sault allegations.

Gervonta (26-0, 24 KOs) had been scheduled to defend against former WBA interim 135-lb champion Romero, who previously went by the nickname ‘Rolly’, for December 5th last month on Showtime pay-per-view at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

Due to the allegations made against Romero, he was pulled from the card and replaced by Isaac ‘Pitbull’ Cruz, and he wound up giving Tank Davis the f*ght of his life, pressuring him nonstop and forcing him to flee in the championship rounds after gassing out.

Tank wound up winning a controversial 12 round unanimous decision, but the boxing public viewed it as a win for Pitbull Cruz. The scores were 115-113, 115-113, and 116-112. Sean Jones scored it for Pitbull Cruz by a 115-113.

Yeah, it was another terrible decision, but it’s not surprising that the judges gave it to Tank Davis because he was the A-side and his opponent wasn’t a big name at the time.

Davis vs. Romero will make some boxing fans happy, as they like the trash-talking that Rolando was doing when he was previously scheduled to f*ght Gervonta last December.

The boxing world would prefer to see Tank Davis f*ght a bigger name at 135 like one of these guys:

George Kambosos Jr
Devin Haney
Ryan Garcia
Jorge Linares
Vasily Lomachenko
Michel Rivera
Isaac ‘Pitbull’ Cruz
Richard Commey
William Zepeda
Rolando Romer’s recent wins:

Anthony Yigit – TKO 7
Avery Sparrow – TKO 7
Jackson Marinez – UD 12 [* controversial]
Arturs Ahmetovs – TKO 2
Juan Carlos Cardones – TKO 1
Andres Figueroa – TKO 4

Romero lost a lot of credibility with his controversial 12 round decision victory over Jackson Marinez in August 2020. Boxing fans believe that Marinez did more than enough to rate the victory, but instead, Romero had his hand raised and was loudly booed.

Where Mayweather Promotions dropped the ball is choosing not to set up a rematch between Rolando and Marinez to clear up the controversy. As a result, Romero is looked at as having won a controversial decision, and fans see him as a flawed f*ghter that was given a gift.

Romero isn’t expected to beat Tank Davis or even be competitive for that matter. Mayweather Promotions are arguably stunting Tank Davis’ career by only matching him against other PBC and f*ghters from their own stable rather than the elite guys.

Loma and Kambosos both can beat tank.

I don't see anyone else at 135 beating tank. Pitbull would be interesting because of his chin and his grit. I think tank still gets the W though.

He would knock out Kambosos, I don't think he beats Haney at 135. I also see Shakur Stevenson beating him as well at any weight.

He should be attempting to f*ght one of the real belt holders at any 3 of the weight classes he jumps up and down from finding bums to f*ght.

Then outside the belt holders you have guys like this that would be good f*ghts for him (130-140):
Jose Ramirez
Regis Prograis
Lomachenko
Teofimo
Colbert
Berchelt  

No I don't care about promotion issues, because he's not even attempting to get guys like this in the ring.

Stevenson is the one with the brightest future. He disciplined too, Haney is a dawg but he’s a grinder Ala Andre Ward style minus the amount of power. Tank vs Haney would be a better match up then you think just because of the nature of their styles.

We all know Mayweather Promotions called this sh*t in. Can hear Leonard Ellerbe's dumb a*s "what are we supposed to do? he's his mandatory". Casual's would fall for this dumb sh*t but Tank not even a fu*king real champion AND Mayweather Promotions always talking about how they don't give a sh*t about belts and how nobody dictates how they run their business.

kambosos yea, haney vs tank is a toss up i feel like haney got tools to win but he has been rocked so I wouldn't be suprised if tank touches him and finishes....

shakur above everybody imo he just gotta grow into the weights of people where its most competitive
