Rolando Romero is not holding back when providing his assessment on imminent foe, Gervonta 'Tank' Davis. The loud-mouthed pair have traded insults for almost a year and they will finally have the chance to back up their boasts when they meet this weekend at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center with a version of the WBA lightweight title up for grabs.

“I‘ve been calling him out since 2017,” said Romero when speaking to BoxingScene at a public workout.
