American WBA World lightweight champion Gervonta Davis (27-0, 25 KOs) has updated his personal record of sold paid broadcasts, the columnist reports.
Dan Rafael. On May 28 in Brooklyn (New York, USA), he knocked out compatriot Rolando Romero (14-1, 12 KOs) in the 6th round.

According to an insider, “Davis vs Romero fight on Showtime PPV collected about 275 thousand paid broadcasts sold, which is Gervonta’s best result for all 4 of his pay TV appearances. In total, he generated about 22 million USD on PPV. That is the reason why the fight was shown on pay TV – people are willing to pay money to see the fights of “Tank” Davis.

In previous fights, Davis’ PPV sales figures were as follows:

– vs Leo Santa Cruz – 200-225 thousand PPV (reportage about this fight);
– vs Mario Barrios – 210-215 thousand PPV (reportage about this fight);
– vs Isaac Cruz – a little over 200 thousand PPV (there is no report on this fight).

“In fact, there are only 4 PPV fighters in boxing right now. And Gervonta is one of them. The others are Canelo Alvarez, Anthony Joshua and Errol Spence. There is also Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder, but in their case, PPV depends solely on having the right opponent, ”writes Raphael.

Romero suddenly said yesterday: “I respect “Tank” Davis, I lost to a stronger one.” It’s funny that immediately after the defeat, he said differently: I drove this scared to shit bitch and took all the rounds.
