Davis and Rolly will meet for the main event this Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The tank, 5’5 1/2″, is giving away a lot of size and power compared to the Rolly 5’8″, who looks like a welded weight.
Tank had never fought anyone with Rolly’s sheer strength and stature, and it was difficult to predict how he would deal with such a large guy.
For a light person, Rolly is a monster because he is so big and strong for the tournament. Given his size, he could easily move two weight classes up and compete in the welterweight division.
“I’ve never been to New York, so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to go,” Rayo Valenzuela told Fighthype about his plans to attend next Saturday’s game between Gervonta Davis and Rolly Romero at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
“Both of these guys are in my weight class, and now I’m in the door. I want to see them up close and see their work in person.
“I kept saying Tank, but the other night I couldn’t sleep, and I watched a lot of movies. I will tell I’ll skate with Rolly. I think he will bigger and stronger than Tank‘ Rayo continued.
“The tank stopped Leo [Santa Cruz], but Leo is a smaller boxer. He got into trouble with [Yuriorkis] Gamboa. The Gamboa isn’t a natural 135-pound, but it’s still a small 135.
“Watching [Mario] Barrios fought, he managed to land several shots, but Barrios was there to catch him. I don’t think Rolly will be there. He will make it awkward.
“He is bigger and has a bigger base, a stronger base. So it will be very interesting. It’s going to be an interesting fight, but I think it’s 50-50.
“I was impressed with the punches he threw and the speed behind it,” Rayo said of how Rolly looked during his recent public workout. “Yes, he is strong.
“That’s why it’s an interesting fight. Both have good qualities. 50-50.
“I don’t know,” Rayo said when asked if the Davis vs. Whether or not Rolly ends up in a knockout. “It was a good fight. Hard to say. I want winners or losers. I think both are great names for me,” Rayo said.
