What up talking fight fans, thanks for tuning in to today’s episode of the knockout of the week, featuring myself mike or am a man-centered man in the den doing it big like we always do bringing you the knockout of the week, and you know what guys there Wasn’T many fights out there to watch, but, yes, we did have a great knockout and that in the fight of devin, i’m sorry giovanti davis and roland rowley romero, big fight, cedric.
Let’S talk about this one yeah man um.
I was saying that this morning on the scorecard that uh, i haven’t been this excited for for uh, for for a nine to one favorite fight to watch the nine to one favorite fights and you know um, because in normal circumstances, if you see that the odds Are nine to one you’re, probably gon na, not even think it’s a competitive fight, um, but rolly’s talking really talked himself into this into this position and uh, because a lot of people were believing that he was gon na win yeah.
So he talked his way into the position and the one thing i do appreciate about him, though, is that he he fought the way he talked.
You know a lot of guys will talk trash in in the pre-fight conference.
Yeah, i’m gon na.
Do this i’m gon na do that and then they get out there and then and then there’s a different ballgame once they get that first, they feel that they feel that heat but uh yeah, but uh romero.
He stuck to his word uh.
Well, he didn’t get the first one first round, kale like he was predicting no, but nothing and uh yeah manny.
He he did his thing until he walked into that yo.
He had tank fighting from the outside from the outside, which was you know, not uh, not the usual for tank man and uh.
What a big shot, though big left yeah yeah.
He literally, he literally um and again it wasn’t just a random close your eyes and throw a punch throw like he stepped back yeah.
If you notice he actually slipped.
First rowley threw a jab tank slipped it and threw the left at the same time.
So again, it wasn’t just a random bomb that he threw like he he backed up.
He did a defensive move first slipped to the outside and banged him with that.
With that overhand left shout out to carl carl from the uk.
What up? What up davis is? Very impressive, but did we learn anything new um again? Well to me you know what was his record now now.
His record is 24 [ Music ].
I think he came into the fight.
Twenty-Two stick to know he’s now: 27-0 you’re correct 27-0, with 25 knockouts yeah.
So he’s anything new is that you can.
You can be winning against the fight against tank and still get slept, put to sleep to sleep near the end um, so his power is real, uh and yeah.
I i believe in him.
Well guys, yes, five-time world champion.
Javonte tank davis, boxing’s hotties having attraction right now has added his to his fast growing highlight reel, and you know he retained that wba lightweight title with a sensational knockout victory over previously unbeaten role, it rolando romero uh last night, man guys, if you didn’t have a Chance to watch it, man, davis, it was his return to the venue where he won his first world title via a star making 2017 ko real of jose pedraza um and honestly.
This was a great fight man.
The fierce rivals finally settled their war of words in the ring, and i highly anticipated yeah and that’s the other thing too about the war of words.
I always say it’s always a it’s always a great fight when the two guys really don’t like each other in real life.
I was saying this a couple weeks ago: carl you could you could.
You could say something about this too.
A couple weeks ago, with amir khan and kell brook, even though everybody knew that both guys were past their prime at the end of their careers, i knew it was going to be a good fight just because they don’t like each other in real life.
Not just boxing wise, you know, so i knew i knew they were both going to bring it and it was going to be a good fight just because of that alone, and that uh reason why i brought that up is because these guys, tank and rolly were Really talking um some serious trash to each other, actually, not not really tank tanks seemed more calm and uh and was just common collective, like he’s already been here before, and had guys trying to talk to him and it’s not facing him.
Rolly was talking like he’s.
He was just talking and talking and talking, yeah um, but again he you know at least he tried to back it up.
He he fought the way he talked and uh yeah man he’s he’s still got a good crazy, still early in his career, so he’s the last he’s still a young cat he’s now 14-1.
You know what, let’s just hope that that is a lesson to him.
Not a loss um, you know, while romero was able to rise to his feet, referee david fields had seen enough and waved off that uh.
You know the fight at 249.
In the round man uh, you know the fight was fairly even statistically, with davis, only outlanding romero 25 to 22, but with a significant edge in punch accuracy 30 to 19.
According to compubox uh, after the fight romeo, uh romero stated uh his intention of a rematch, while davis thanked romero for accepting the fight um.
So you know it was a big thing: man uh, i did watch you know watching this fight watching romero get back to his dressing room uh.
He was very out of it even on the walk back.
He didn’t stay in the ring for afterwards.
I think that was more embarrassment um, because he i think in the moment he was more embarrassed because uh, just because all the talking that he was doing, he predicted the first round ko and then he got ko later on in the fight.
So i think it was more embarrassment why he left the ring right away.
He did show up to the post fight press conference and still had the same confidence he did before the fight um.
He said he felt he won every round.
He felt um well dominating fox gave him the first two huh compubox, i believe, gave him the first two.
I gave him the first three i had rolly winning the fight up until the knockout.
I had rowley winning the first three rounds and then tanked the last two going into that last round.
At the end, the last minute of the third of the third quarter, third quarter of the third round uh football season play.
I was game, seven tonight, boston and miami.
That’S what’s on my mind, um so uh at the end of the third round tanks started, i i felt tanks started to pick it up a little bit.
Fourth round like rounds.
Three four and five i marked as close rounds rounds.
Three i marked for for rolly and the 405.
I got for tank, but they were close rounds.
I just i just thought slowly.
Tank was was working his way up, like figuring his timing, figuring out what he can do um he did.
He really does have respectable power at the post fight press conference.
That’S why i always like listen to the post fight press conference because, like the fighters will tell you like the what you know that what really happened during the fight, um and and tank admitted he said.
I felt this power.
You know he does have power tank.
Did admit that he said he got caught early and he he knew he had to be careful, yeah um.
So that’s one of the reasons why he was he wasn’t throwing as much in in those first couple of rounds he got caught and he knew he had to.
You know really be on point for that counter: counterpunch yeah yeah.
Definitely you know they were both really feeling each other in the first two rounds, uh they’re really feeling each other out man showing respect of power for both sides right um, as as rowley romero man.
You know he he does have that power uh.
You know he displayed that in his uh in his press conference workout, you know, he’s got big power in those hands uh.
I think he was just letting his emotion take over a little too much and uh.
He wasn’t able to sit down on those punches.
The way he wanted to also uh davis was moving a lot around the outside of the ring, something that you know davis is not really that’s, not his comfort zone.
Man he’s usually the one pressing he’s, usually the one in the center of the ring standing his ground but uh.
You know, rolly had him on the rolly.
Had him on the defense man and had him uh, you know fighting off that back foot on the counter shot and it goes to show you with that big left hand.
You know flip that jab come out throws up that big left.
Rolly romero had nothing nothing to do, but but just hit the mat.
You know if those ropes weren’t there he would end it up in the lap of the judges.
Oh yes, that’s why that’s thanks for bringing that up? Yes, um [ Music ], because his momentum was coming forward so much and he walked into that straight left.
If those ropes weren’t there, that would have been a phase first, you know yeah.
He would have been face.
First, like right down.
I’M surprised he got back to his feet as quick as he did uh just to show his kids got, hurt and those uh.
You know the survival uh.
He did get up man but uh.
You know the referee uh stopped it perfectly man.
It was a good call.
Uh romero was not ready to step back in there and take another couple of shots uh.
He was not with it.
He still looked like he wasn’t with it on his way back to the dressing room uh, you know still still kind of dazed still wondering what’s going on, that was a big shot um.
Definitely when you watch it in slo-mo, carl, don’t kill me girl.
Yes, thank you.
I got ta the summer man’s hawaiian, the hawaiian stuff.
You know he’s loving my shirt.
Yes, so, but honestly, man, uh, you know big fight.
Last night, uh great results, man uh tank davis coming through he did it.
A little earlier than i thought he was gon na do i was calling him for you know eighth, ninth round oh hold on mike.
Can you please confirm, because i some just i texted a few people acting like they? Don’T they don’t believe me? Can you please confirm that i did predict a sixth round ko? Yes for the fight? Yes, yes, he did.
Thank you folks.
He predicted it.
It happened sixth round ko, it was predicted by cedric.
Go back to the archives of this show and you will see that we talk about it in great depth and i called it a little later on in the rounds.
It was called by cedric sixth round.
He came through big big one there, man, that’s for sure.
It’S out of graham’s wardrobe, no graham’s wardrobe, maybe wearing a bow tie with it.
Um um some quick questions there, mike um carl’s asking does he does tank resigned with mayweather? That’S uh.
I believe he will.
I think what’s happening is just just like any athlete in any sport they’re just testing the waters to see if anybody’s gon na offer more money.
You know just to see just to see what what other offers are out there.
You know you got eddie hearn, you got top, i don’t think he’s going to sign with top rank.
You guys got a few other guys out there.
So um it’s going to be interesting.
You know he’s going to i’m assuming he’s going to take the best offer whoever’s going to give me the most money i’m going to go with them, so he made 2 million last night off that fight, uh rolly romero walked away with 500 grand uh tank davis Was guaranteed that 2 million win or lose? You know he did it in great fashion and uh won that two million with a great knockout man to uh improve his record to now 27-0 uh.
You know what also in that fight, though uh we got to talk about uh.
You know the undercard a little bit it was.
It was a great fight man in the co-main event, cuban star uh, here’s linda lara 29, 3 and 3, with 17 ko’s dominated yeah yeah dominated who was 31 and five 21 ko’s uh good stoppage, a rightful stoppage by the referee yeah.
Definitely you know uh two division champion who landed 54 of his power punches in the boat laura waited patiently for uh.
You know his opening against the aggressive o’sullivan and broke through for the first time late in round four uh.
He sent o’sullivan down in the closing moments of the round uh with a blistering counter left hand that hurt him before dropping him with a straight right hand.
Um o’sullivan was again saved by the bell in round five as laura hurt him as the round uh uh.
You know came down to an end.
There uh, he came with a right hook straight left combination showing the precision um that has made him renowned as one of the sport’s most skilled fighters for years.
Uh laura struck again at the end of round seven wobbling o’sullivan severely moments before the bell rang again after receiving attention from the ringside physician before round.
Eight o’sullivan ran into another straight left hand from laura early in the round, prompting referee uh estevez to wave off the belt with 23 seconds into the frame um.
The telecast also saw rising star jesus unanimous decision win over rugged, uh battler luke sentiment here.
Uh santa mara uh, you know what it’s crazy fights man uh 21 year old ramos, was able to uh, impose his size advantage from the outs um from the outset.
Man uh, pushing santamara backward and forcing him into the fight uh to fight off the ropes.
For much of the fight uh with the victory ramos was able to avenge his uncle abel rebels who lost to santa maria in february.
So you know what there was some other some grudges last night man in those fights, it was great.
I thoroughly enjoyed the only fight that we got to watch this weekend.
It was wonderful man but shout out to our man, jervante tank davis, coming through with that yeah, really real, quick crawling chest, saying you’re taking a bow, because you got one right at last.
No actually, carl, i predicted uh charlo’s uh um 10th 10th round knockout of castano, and i also predicted vival to beat canelo.
I pred i predicted the vault by split decision.
He won by unanimous yeah, so no i get okay.
Can the channel give mike a budget for some clothing? Please eventually for all you subscribers out there please buy those memberships.
I can’t get a new shirt dude, please our friend and conrad over in the uk carl at last bell boxing, because unfortunately, this shirt’s a little too bright, and it might be blinding them this afternoon.
Yes, italian fight fans, thanks for tuning in to today’s episode of the knockout of the week, shout out to our man, jervante tank davis, retaining the title.

Uh, definitely yeah.
Let’S start a gofundme page for me and my shirts uh center.
You have anything you want to say before you get out of here: um, nothing, man, just um, closing, closing um remarks on uh tank.
You know that one 135 pound area division is uh stacked with some good fights.
What is next, for both fighters? Um rowley’s still young in his career, he still um.
You know he still has a good career or gets ahead of him.
He just went up against one of the hardest punchers in boxing one of one of the strongest knockout artists in the sport of boxing and um, and did good and was winning the fight until he got until he got stopped.
So i think he still has a good future in front of them.
As for tank um, you know finance financially, i probably you know.
What thing i want to see is.
I want to see him.
That’S what i think next for him.
This is a good fight that can be made.
I think we have to see that next.
I think it’s got to be tank, ryan, garcia.
We got to get that one done.
We got to get it on the books and settled before the end of this year.
I think it’ll be a great fight and uh that definitely that will be a war between two very skilled boxers and that definitely needs to happen.
Uh first thing for tank, though he’s got ta figure out where he signed in first and that’s the first thing for him uh.
Then then we can address that whole, maybe rematch with romero.
I don’t know if that’ll really happen, um some people might want to see it.
Some people might not want to see it at all, but that’s what it is man, that’s boxing got ta tell you guys you tuned in today for this episode of the knockout of the week, make sure you join us next week same time same channel, new knockout And join us tomorrow, 4 p.
