Davis stays undefeated with TKO of Romero


NEW YORK — Gervonta Davis wasn’t letting his hands go, and Rolando Romero took advantage. He stalked “Tank” Davis and even forced him to hold on at times after he connected with a couple of power shots.

But, as he always does, Davis found a way with his devastating left hand, a counter shot that sent Romero crashing face first on the rope. “Rolly” beat the count on unsteady legs, and the referee stopped the bout, giving Davis yet another brutal TKO victory on Saturday in a career filled with them.

The end came with 21 seconds remaining in Round 6 at a sold-out Barclays Center, allowing Davis to retain his WBA “regular” lightweight title and perhaps move on to a high-stakes showdown with Ryan Garcia, who was ringside.
