As a testament to his claims, recently a video of him showing off his might was shared by boxing reporter Elie Seckbach. Romero landed a barrage of punches on a heavy bag, which ended up dropping down.

Another fan didn’t find anything impressive about the heavy bag falling. He wrote, “I’ll never understand why people connect a heavybag falling with having power.” Meanwhile, a fan gave reasoning as to what might be the reason for the bag falling down. He claimed, “The clips give out over time due to constant hits and tension this happens in all gyms even if a kid hits it”.

Someone else pointed out, “That was already loose lol the bolt fell out”. Another fan claimed that Ryan Garcia would be able to defeat Romero if the two fought one another. He also wrote, “Bro what the hell is wrong with this clip? If they really wanted to make him look good, they should’ve chosen some clip, those punches looked rather sloppy. Garcia will punish this fool…”.

Overall, fans were not impressed with Romero’s boxing skills, despite Seckbach’s opinion regarding him.
