Are there any belts on the line for Gervonta Davis v Rolando Romero?

Yes, Davis will defend his WBA (regular) lightweight title when the pair clash at the Barclays Center. The duo were originally supposed to fight in December, but Romero will finally get the chance to win his first world title this weekend.

What is Gervonta Davis' record?

Davis' record is a perfect one, with the 27-year-old winning all 26 of his fights to date. The Baltimore native made his debut back in 2013 and he has since stopped 24 of his 26 opponents inside the distance.

Davis was last in action in December, beating Cruz on points to retain the latest title he won in 2020 when he stopped Santa Cruz in San Antonio.

Davis could have progressed further, but a routine defence this weekend could help him set up potential unification fights.

What is Rolando Romero's record?

Like Davis, Romero has yet to taste defeat, but the Las Vegas native has only had 14 fights so far. The 26-year-old turned professional in 2016 and he is well known for his concussive power.

Only Javier Martinez and Jackson Martinez have finished a bout with Romero - and he claims it will be his power that ends the fight.

Romero's best wins have come against Martinez and Anthony Yigit, but in truth he has yet to fight anyone of Davis' quality.

Saturday's contest promises to be a clash of styles, with Romero known for his 'street-fight' technique, while Davis is the more-rounded fighter, although he will be the smaller man in New York this week.

So far only three fights have been confirmed for Saturday's undercard, but the chief support promises to be a humdinger. Erislandy Lara, who once pushed Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez all the way, will face Ireland's Gary 'Spike' O'Sullivan.

The two fighters will face off for Lara's WBA middleweight strap, while Jesus Ramos squares off against Luke Santamaria and Eduardo Ramirez tackles Luis Melendez.
