Rolando Romero furious after getting knocked out by Gervonta Davis

The contender looked good through the first five rounds but was knocked out cold in the sixth.

Rolando "Rolly" Romero is convinced he got caught by a lucky shot after WBA lightweight champion Gervonta "Tank" Davis knocked him out.

According to Rolly, he won all five rounds of the bout before over-exposing himself in the sixth and allowing Tank to capitalise.

"He caught me with a shot. I jumped in and he caught me with a shot, it's as simple as that," he said after the fight.

"I'm a warrior and I wanted to continue the fight. If I could have continued, I would have continued,"

To be fair to the downed contender, he certainly looked on top through the first five, but his headlong charge into Davis to start the sixth was foolhardy and got the treatment it deserved from a champion.

He believes his performance somehow exposed Davis and was adamant he should be given a rematch.

"I won all six rounds. I won every moment in that fight, and I exposed him, and we need to run that s*** back," he said.

"If I could have gotten a first-round knockout, I would have gotten it. But he was expecting a first-round knockout, so I wasn't able to get a first-round knockout.

"I want Gervonta Davis again. I was winning that f***fight, and I got caught with a clean shot, that's all.

"No, I want Gervonta Davis again. I exposed his a**, and everybody in this room knows it."

However, it seems much more likely that Tank's next fight will be either against George Kambosos Jr, Devin Haney or Ryan Garcia.
