Via Jack Tiernan: George Kambosos Jr says he wants to fight Gervonta’s ‘Tank’ Davis after witnessing him in his final title defense.
Unified lightweight champion Kambosos said he saw “a lot of holes” in Tank Davis’ bout while defending his WBA ‘regular’ belt against Isaac ‘Pitbull’ Cruz last December in Los Angeles, California.
Tank (26-0.24 KOs) is scheduled to take on Rolando ‘Rolly’ Romero next month on May 28 on Showtime PPV at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
For their part, Kambosos (20-0, 10 KOs) will take the IBF, WBA, WBC Franchise & WBO lightweight title against WBC champion Devin Haney on June 4.
If Tanks and Kambosos win the next skirmish, they are freed up to fight it in a massive war on a pay-per-view basis. The only problem is that Tank probably won’t be open to the idea of facing the Kambosos in Australia the way Haney does.
“The Light Division is the best division in the world, and thanks to my hard work, dedication, and discipline, I am the top dog,” said George Kambosos Jr. talk to Fighthype. “I’m still the underdog, but I’m the top dog, and that’s awesome.
“Tank is a very good fighter. I think he will completely destroy that guy [Rolando ‘Rolly’ Romero]. I’m not sure what his name is. Romero, who is that guy,” Kambosos said.
“That clown, simple as that. i thought [Teofimo] Lopez Sr. is a clown, but this guy is a bigger clown. He’s a bigger clown. He reminds me of Adam Sandler’s ‘Happy Gilmore’ movie,” Kambosos said when talking about Rolly Romero’s resemblance to the character Happy Gilmore.
“Something is wrong, something is missing there. Billy Madison or Happy Gilmore, something’s wrong with him, man. He’s going to destroy him,” Kambosos said of Gervonta ‘The Tank’ Davis in his match against kt Rolly on May 28.
“I think Romero is digging a hole for himself the more he talks. The more he talks, the more stupid things he shows up in front of the camera and says.
“I don’t really pay attention to that guy, but you see things pop up and who are you? Because you train at the Mayweather Boxing gym, you have to be someone. You are nobody,” Kambosos said of Rolly.
“You should have lost a few fights before [against Jackson Marinez], not that I watched the match, but everyone is saying on social media that you are given a decision. Tank should handle him pretty easily.
“That would be the end for him. You’ll never hear from him again,” Kambosos said of Rolly Romero. “I really enjoyed fighting the Tank. Like I said, I think he’s a good fighter.
“I was there to watch his game against Isaac Cruz in Los Angeles. So many holes, so many holes [in Tank]. We shall see. I’m focusing on a guy [Devin Haney] now. Kambosos said.
