The Future Remains Bright For Rolando Romero

Rolando Romero has the skills to be a future champion following his TKO loss to Gervonta Davis.

Romero (14-1, 12 KOs) suffered his first career loss on May 28 at the Barclays Center. This was the biggest fight of his career and he made the most of the opportunity. There was a contentious background to this fight as Romero and Davis traded barbs for nearly one year before the fight.

The end result was a well-timed left hand that dropped Romero in the sixth round, which prompted the referee, David Fields, to end the fight when Romero stood up on unsteady legs. The knockout loss claimed most of the headlines after the fight but Romero’s performance did not go unnoticed.

He had several impactful moments in the fight and had Davis up against the ropes on multiple occasions. He took a page out of Isaac Cruz’s playbook and his aggressive strategy worked for as long as the fight lasted. As it turned out, Davis used Romero’s aggression against him and landed the left hand that Romero did not see coming.

Losing on a pay-per-view main event is never an easy task for a boxer to deal with but it will have a positive impact on Romero’s career. The loss will serve as a learning experience for Romero and he will be able to know where he needs to strengthen his offensive and defensive skills.

Romero is a naturally gifted boxer with a tremendous amount of power. In the Davis fight, it was evident that he worked on his boxing skills during his training camp. He threw cleaner punches with solid technique than he did in his win against Anthony Yigit.

Romero’s trainer, Bullet Cromwell, devised a solid game plan for the Davis fight and they will be able to work together to make improvements for Romero’s next bout. Romero, the 26-year-old, is still developing as a professional boxer. Once Romero gets back to a winning streak, he will be in contention to fight for a world title either in the 135-pound division or the 140-pound division.
