Davis vs. Romero Prediction:
Despite Romero’s claims that Davis has been outboxed and struck clean by every opponent, Romero allows the wider holes for Davis to take advantage of. As Romero goes for the fences with practically every punch, winding up and creating large spaces for the return fire, he is also often off-balanced in the process.
There’s no denying Davis’ superiority as a boxer and his superiority in raw power over Romero. It’s impossible to imagine a scenario in which Romero doesn’t catch Davis clean with a game-changing shot and then end the fight with a ferocious barrage of punches.
Prediction: Davis will win the fight with TKO.
