It’s fight night and tensions could not be higher as Gervonta Davis and Rolando Romero enter the ring. Yesterday, emotions nearly rose to unsafe territories as the two camps traded insults during the weigh-in. Ultimately, Davis made the decision to push Romero off of the weigh-in stage. Thankfully, Romero caught himself and avoided an injury that may have postponed the bout.
“I just hit him, like, on the edge of the stage. I just pushed him, like, to get in his head. He talks too much,” Davis said during a post weigh-in interview.
“I always want to feel my opponent out, and I know that he’s got punching power, so I’m definitely going to learn his power and what his best things are before I try to take him out.”
Romero appears to have taken the incident in stride. In a post weigh-in interview, the Las Vegas native claimed that Davis pushed him because he was scared.
“Motherf*cker pushed me, as simple as that,” Romero commented.
“He’s scared! He’s afraid, I’m a f*ckin’ alpha compared to him. He’s a b*tch for that. He could have f*cked up the fight, I could have twisted an ankle or some shit. But I got some crazy-a** reflexes.”
The two may not be able to push each other on Saturday night, but they will certainly be able to throw a few punches. It will all go down on Showtime Pay-Per-View at 9 p.m. ET in Brooklyn, New York.
