Tonight, a lightweight division grudge match will take centre stage Stateside.
Gervonta Davis and Rolando Romero will leave their verbal exchanges behind and throw leather with a slice of humble pie ready for the loser.
The secondary WBA 135lb title is also on the line which represents Davis’ third defence. But after everything that has been said in the build up the belt feels almost insignificant with so much ego and testosterone involved.
The Showtime event also features Erislandy Lara v Gary O’Sullivan in the chief support plus Jésus Ramos v Luke Santamaria and much more.
