Furthermore, ‘The Golden Boy of Boxing’, Oscar De La Hoya has mixed feelings about the fight. He stated, “I think if either guy lands that one bomb, you know because both guys have knockout power. So, I think it’s a 50-50.”

Apparently, Teofimo Lopez has his money on the line – “I’m putting $100000 on Rolando Romero. I could bet on the guy, and let him know I’m rooting for him.”

What other notables had to say about the clash

Errol Spence Jr “I think Tank is going to knock him out.”

Bob Arum“Well I’m a big admirer of Tank. I don’t think Romero is particularly competitive with him.”

Devin Haney“Who the f**k is Rolly. Tank is going to beat the sh*t out of him.”

George Kambosos Jr.“He’s [Davis] a very good fighter. I think he’s gonna absolutely destroy that other guy.”

Ryan Garcia“I think he’s severely underestimated. He(Rolly Romero) may look funky, but he knows his funky moves. There’s a lot of attributes that might be against Tank this fight.”

Even the boxing professionals were unable to make a biased prognosis because both boxers have a fair chance of winning.
