Mayweather Promotion have decided to put their Golden Goose Gervonta Davis vs their 2nd in command Rolando Romero for a showdown December 5th surprisingly on a Sunday.
Floyd Mayweather which Davis is signed with, stated during Davis last fight post fight press conference which he defeated Mario Barrios, That Davis next opponent will be a fighter under the mayweather/Pbc brand. Which Mayweather promotion is not looking to make any other promotional company great, in reference to facing fighters such as current Undisputed lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez who is under Top Rank at ESPN. Wbc world champion Devin Haney who’s in partnership with Matchroom promotion Eddie Hearn at DAZN. Ryan Garcia who’s with Golden Boy Promotion at DAZN. Now you can only make another promotional company great if Gervonta Davis Lose to one of those fighters or any other fighters not Linked to Mayweather promotions. Maybe Mayweather promotions don’t have enough confidence in their fighter to be victorious vs those which were name including the likes of Vasyl Lomachenko which they avoided to fight.
Tho is not odd that each promotional company showcase their in-house fighters, fighting eachother yet at this stage of Gervonta Davis career, a true challenge won’t hurt. Many feel in the boxing world that the training wheels have not come off and That mayweather is way to concern in putting butts in the seats for Tank, than putting legit names and accomplishments on the resume. In the end, legacy will always reign supreme.
Rolando Romero is also coming off a TKO victory as a co main at the last Jermell Charlo vs Castano undisputed bout in San Antonio this past summer. Romero who was stripped from his Wba interim world title during Wba cleaning up their organization after the controversial judging during Fox vs Maestre fight and the constant criticisms from the boxing world in reference to the organization and the sport having too many belts. Wba mandated its ex interim to fight the Wba Regular champion which is Gervonta Davis and the winner will be mandated to fight the Wba Super champion Teofimo Lopez. Romero who is known for his power yet very awkward possess a threat which Gervonta Davis have yet face. Well you can say both of them have not faced An opponent with legit knockout punching power. Davis who’s without a doubt the better boxer yet gets in the habit of letting himself get hit yet that’s because he knows the opponent don’t possess the power to hurt him. This time around, Davis won’t use that same strategy.
It’s going to be a great build up and a wonderful event which many was not asking for this fight yet very content to witness.
