The 27-year-old Davis (26-0, 24 KOs) will be representing his long-time ‘Mayweather promotions’ for one last time as both parties had hinted at parting ways from each other ahead of the fight. Davis made his last appearance in the ring back in December 2021 where he squeezed the victory against a much more defiant opponent in the form of Isaac Cruz. Cruz pushed Davis to the ropes all night and almost snatched the victory from the mouth of the undefeated champion. But Davis stood firm, held his ground, and walked away with the unanimous decision victory on the night.
While Romero (14-0,12 KOs) fought two times in 2021, winning both bouts inside the distance over Avery Sparrow and Anthony Yigit. Romero is well aware of the fact that a win over a fighter of caliber like ‘Tank’ can sky-rocket his career to a whole new level and cometh this Saturday, he will be looking to pounce on every opportunity that will be presented to him.
For Davis, it’s a matter of respect now. A crushing a win against a rather mediocre fighter like Romero can open a flood of opportunities in the star-studded lightweight division for him.
