There’s no question Rolando Romero has been talking a big game as he readies for his Showtime PPV bout with Gervonta Davis — so why stop now? TMZ Sports recently caught up with Romero where he said he expects to not only beat ‘Tank’, but make it a short night on top of that.

“Man, I’ma say it like this, Tank’s gonna get knocked the fuck out,” Romero said. And like I said, whoever believes otherwise can go fuck themselves. ... The best thing about Tank is he’s a puncher, and I’m a bigger puncher and I’m a bigger person! What the fuck does he have?

“I punch way harder than him. Ask anyone that knows us both, they’ll tell you straight up, I’ma knock him the fuck out. One round. He gonna run right into something, ‘cause he’s stupid!”

Romero and Davis will collide on December 5th at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. And while Romero has put plenty of energy into trolling and insulting Davis, let’s just hope he’s putting in just as much work in the gym so he can give fans a performance worthy of his trash talking.
