This fight has been scheduled to happen since Tank Davis won by TKO against Mario Barrios back in 2021, but the originally scheduled bout was called off with Rolly Romero facing legal troubles.

Davis being a massive favorite, at -1100 here, is nothing new. He came in at -1450 against Cruz. The last time we saw Davis as less of a favorite than this was in that Mario Barrios fight, when Davis opened at just -430.
This underdog role is not a usual one for Romero, who has closed as a favorite of -600 or more in each of his last four fights.
Gervonta Davis vs. Rolando Romero Prediction
There isn’t much value on the moneyline for Davis or on him getting the KO. While I’m going with Davis to win the fight, and despite him being a knockout artist (24 in 26 fights), Romero is no slouch and boasts an undefeated record himself. With a Davis win be decision giving better than 4-1 odds, that’s where the value lies. I’d pepper a little bit on that.
Bet Davis to win by points/decision (+460).
