Rolando “Rolly” Romero Downplays The Skills Of Gervonta Davis: “He’s Not That Talented”

By: Hans Themistode There’s a consensus building around Gervonta Davis, one that Rolando Romero vehemently disagrees with. By and large, Davis is known for his resounding knockout power. Having stopped all but one of his 25 career opponents, Davis has gained the reputation of being one of the sport's most feared punchers. While his biggest asset lies within his two fists, Davis has also received praise for his overall boxing ability. Rolando, on the other hand, finds the skills of Davis rudimentary. While the 26-year-old Las Vegas, native acknowledges that Davis is a hard hitter, when it comes to his all-around features in the ring, Rolando has a difficult time giving Davis any credit. “That’s the thing I don't get,” said Rolando during an interview with AB Boxing News. “He’s not that talented. Everybody talks about his boxing skills but he literally gets punched by everybody.” Unlike most of his opponents, Davis was recently forced to dive deeper into his bag of tricks than usual. On June 26th, earlier this year at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta Georgia, Davis opted to move up two weight classes to take on former WBA “Regular” titlist, Mario Barrios. A noticeably wary Davis fought cautiously on the outside early on before finding his rhythm in the second half. Ultimately, Davis would continue his knockout winning ways as he floored Barrios in the eighth and 11th rounds before referee Thomas Taylor waved things off in the penultimate round. Despite scoring the knockout victory over a much larger man, Romero is both unafraid and unimpressed with what Davis brings to the table. Although the Baltimore product's knockout power is often lauded, Rolando believes he should be viewed as an even bigger puncher. With 12 stoppage wins in 14 pro fights, including a seventh-round drubbing against Anthony Yigit earlier this year, Rolando is of the belief that once he connects on the chin of Davis, not only will their contest come to an end, but the life of Davis will dramatically change in the process. "He’s never going to be able to fight after this shit. He won’t be able to process anything. We’re going to need a cart to f*cking push him around."

Adrien Broner Sent To Jail For Violating Probation

By: Sean Crose It's happened again. Adrien Broner has found himself in trouble with the law. The fighter, who was once seen as a pound for pound level talent, and perhaps even the future heir to Floyd Mayweather's throne, has had a tough seven or so years. Riding high in the early part of the previous decade, legal troubles and some pretty big ring losses sent the man into a rut that the Cincinnati native seems to keep falling back into. Now Broner, whose nickname is "The Problem," is behind bars for a probation violation, courtesy of a Cleveland judge. Cleveland.com reports that "Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court Judge Sherrie Miday ordered Broner, 32, remanded to the county jail after a Tuesday hearing, according to court records." The order stems from an incident where Broner was said to have assaulted a woman in a night club. Miday apparently learned "that he (Broner) failed to enroll in an alcohol treatment program as part of his court-ordered probation for assaulting a woman." Broner was originally "charged with several felonies, but ultimately received probation after he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of assault." To make matters worse for Broner, he has another court date in the same court on the 26th of this month, this time regarding a civil suit launched by the same woman he is said to have assaulted. The judge in that case "will decide whether to hold him in contempt for failing to cooperate." Broner's accuser claimed he put his weight on her and kissed her forcefully at a Cleveland night club back in 2018. Needless to say, the judge in the civil case, Nancy Margaret Russo, awarded the woman eight hundred thousand dollars from Broner, money which the fighter reportedly hasn't coughed up. According to Cleveland.com, "Broner has appealed Russo’s decision to the 8th District Court of Appeals, which has not said whether it will take up the appeal." All of this is sadly less than unusual for Broner, whose life appears to be a constant state of disarray. He's earned much money in the ring, but seems to be plagued by irresponsibility and a habit of breaking the law. Broner, whose record stands at 34-4-1, last fought in February and hasn't been penciled in for another bout since that time. He has won titles in four weight divisions throughout what has been a successful, if perhaps disappointing, professional career.
