Who hit harder between Ryan Garcia and Gervonta Davis? Without a doubt Rolly Romero
Rolando ‘Rolly’ Romero has played against Gervonta Davis and against Ryan Garcia – and there is no doubt in his mind who hit harder.
Lightweight 14-1 has 12 KOs and his first loss came in May 2022 at the hands of ‘Tank’. After bitterly accumulating bad health, ‘Rolly’ brought Davis halfway into the fight before a massive left hand slipped from the ropes knocking him down.
He managed to stay on his feet at the end of the count, but the referee waved his hand after it became clear that he was unsteady on his feet. It was Tank’s 25th knockout win – since then, he’s added his 26th point to Hector Luis Garcia.
Despite being flattened by the Baltimore boxer, Romero still said that “Tank’s opponent and future opponent, Ryan Garcia, hit harder. He talked to FightHype.com.
“Ryan Garcia punches harder than Tank. Yes [even with sparring gloves.] Tank caught me with a lucky shot. My body was dehydrated and exhausted – I couldn’t do 135 more, everyone knew that. I asked for the fight at 140 a year before the damn war. I took the opportunity to be great.
Despite only fighting Garcia – thus having to wear larger gloves and take less damage – Romero is confident he hits harder. He has 19 kills in 23 wins and like ‘The Tank’, is undefeated.
It probably won’t take long for fans to find out if ‘Rolly’s prediction is correct as all signs still point to a April 15 136lb . weight class match in Las Vegas for a young star couple.
With contracts reported at the signing stage and all temporary wars over, fans eagerly await confirmation of what will be one of the biggest battles of the year.
