WBA Lightweight World Champion Gervonta "Tank" Davis (26-0-0, 24 KO's) will be stepping down the services of his longtime mentor Floyd Mayweather Jr.!  The 27-year-old southpaw wants to go his own way in the future.  Davis will take the first step towards "independence" this coming weekend.

At the Barclays Center in Brooklyn (New York, USA), the WBA champion wants to successfully defend his belt again against long-time rival Rolando "Rolly" Romero (14-0-0, 12 KOs) on Saturday night.  Davis and Romero were supposed to meet for the first time in December of last year.

However, legal problems at "Rolly" Romero initially thwarted that plan.  Like the defending champion, 26-year-old Romero is unbeaten in his professional career to date.  In his biggest win to date, in July 2021, he stopped Anthony Yigit by TKO in round seven - and thus secured the WBA interim belt.

In any case, before his first chance at the World Championship, Rolando Romero presented himself as extremely self-confident: "I'll knock out 'Tank' - very simple!  People underestimate me.  But at the end of the day you will see when it says '...and the New...'”, the WBA mandatory challenger said at the most recent press event.

The defending champion, on the other hand, doesn't seem to be particularly impressed.  Gervonta Davis: “So many people have spoken.  Saturday night we'll see if the sayings will help him in the ring!"
