Fighter History

Rolando Romero

"Rolly" Romero is a Vegas native with a budding and impressive boxing career. He turned professional back in 2016, scoring a first-round TKO in his debut. From there, Romero dazzled through his next 13 fights -- all wins -- before running into Gervonta "Tank" Davis.

Romero's lone loss as a pro came against the heavy hands of Davis. In 2022, Rolly fought respectively into the sixth round before Tank landed a mind-numbing counter left on Romero's jaw hinge. Being that Davis is a southpaw, Romero was not able to beat the 10 count after absorbing the devastating shot.

Since the loss, Romero has done well to bounce back. He has fought only once since losing to Davis, but in that bout, Rolly overwhelmed a 40-year-old Ismael Barroso at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Romero started slowly but cornered Barroso with a flurry of punches in the ninth round to earn a TKO victory. At the time of stoppage, all judges had Romero behind on the cards.

The recent match in Vegas awarded Romero his 13th KO/TKO. That leaves him with an 86.67% stoppage rate heading into the weekend.

Rolly will look for a more complete effort this Saturday versus Cruz. In this fight, Romero will be the much taller fighter, standing at 5-foot-8 with a reach of 68 inches. Romero has displayed issues with southpaws in recent bouts, so he may find some solace in taking on the right-handed Pitbull.

Isaac Cruz

Standing at 5-foot-4, "Pitbull" Cruz is obviously not the biggest fighter in the division. However, his heart and pound-for-pound power are unrivaled -- think of him as Mexican dynamite.

A native of Mexico City, Cruz is at the ripe age of 25, which is three years younger than Romero. He turned professional back in 2015, leaving him with a bit more fight experience. Cruz shows 28 professional bouts compared to Romero's 16 fights.

Throughout his career, Cruz has been tagged with two losses and a draw. As a common opponent, Cruz battled in the ring with Tank Davis just six months prior to Romero's KO loss to the WBA lightweight champion.

In that 2021 scrap, Cruz gave Davis all he could handle but eventually lost via unanimous decision. According to Compubox, Cruz landed 121 total punches (112 power) on Davis, which is the most Tank has ever been hit in a professional fight.

Going against Romero, Cruz will be working with a stiff reach disadvantage, giving up nearly five inches. Still, Cruz is used to operating in this fashion. With that, Romero will need to respect Cruz' compact power -- his 68% KO is not to be ignored. Ring generalship will be paramount in this bout.
