Gervonta Davis is mulling over two dates for a Pay Per View return in the coming months as he pushes towards an undisputed title shot at 140.

“Tank” is potentially one fight away from competing for all the world title belts. This scenario is due to the ongoing World Boxing Association protocol at super-lightweight.

The WBA is currently rendering secondary belts obsolete, of which Davis holds one of to super champion George Kambosos Jr.

Should Kambosos defeat Devin Haney and Davis coming through his mandatory, the pair will collide at some point shortly.

Davis’s dates are now on the table to fight Rolando Romero, with late May and early June both potentials for the PPV event.

The pair initially had a fight lined up for the back end of 2021. However, Romero got forced to pull out due to personal issues, and Davis then fought and beat Isaac Cruz.

Showtime continues to work on scheduling Davis vs. Romero, with confirmation due any day now.


Davis vs. Romero will be put forward as one of the network’s highlights of the next few months. Davis is fast becoming Showtime’s number one fighter.

As former heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder mulls over his career options, Davis gets thrust into the limelight more and more.

It’s hoped that by the end of 2023, Davis will be the number one Pay Per View player in the sport. Furthermore, he should have a clutch of world titles in his possession.

By the time 2024 rolls around, Davis should be a full-blown welterweight and able to mix it with some of the best in the division at the higher limit.

For now, it’s going to be Romero in the opposite corner. The moonlight tweeter recently admitted he’s an ‘angry’ man. Before that, Romer said, ‘Boxing is lonely’ and mocked those who call him ‘a bum.’

It does seem that Romero has a few things to work on right now. However, fireworks certainly expect to go off once he gets in Davis’s vicinity, whether at the presser or inside the ring.
