Rolando ‘Rolly’ Romero didn’t just like the insecurity that Frank Martin (17-0, 12 KOs) confirmed on Saturday evening, half-heartedly calling out the highest lightweights within the division by talking about them collectively as a substitute of singling them out one after the other following his 12 spherical unanimous choice over Michel Rivera (24-1, 14 KOs) at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.
Romero feels that Martin regarded wishy-washy along with his studdering name out of the highest 135-pounders within the division after his win over Rivera in a WBA title eliminator.
Martin ought to have put some authority in his voice by calling out undisputed light-weight champion Devin Haney and WBA secondary champ Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis.
The Errol Spence Jr promoted Martin regarded like he had stage fright, like somebody giving a speech for the primary time at school and falling aside when going through his classmates whereas fumbling by his disorganized notes.
Martin received the combat by a 12 spherical unanimous choice by scores of 120-107, 117-110, and 118-109.
“Michel Rivera is weight drained. He can’t be at that weight no extra. You would inform from the primary spherical,” mentioned Rolando ‘Rolly’ Romero to Fighthype, reacting to Frank Martin’s win over Michel Rivera on Saturday evening.
“The mom f***er was respiration arduous from the primary spherical. He simply appears to be like like that proper now. He’s a giant dude. He was preventing at 144, 148. He’s a giant dude.
“He regarded good,” mentioned Rolly when requested his view about Frank Martin. “If he had energy, he would have stopped Michel. Michel is already chinny.
“He’s snappy, however his energy isn’t like. If he had energy, he would have stopped Michel. I’m not a light-weight no extra. They’re attempting to say this s**t as a result of I’m transferring up.
“On the finish of it, he [Martin] didn’t even sound assured. He’s like, ‘Anybody can get it. Ah.’ Bro, you freeze. Like with me, after I name somebody out, ‘I would like this mom f***ker. I would like this mom f***ker.’ He [Martin] doesn’t actually need it with these fighters.
“I don’t actually care an excessive amount of about him. I like him as an individual. He doesn’t actually have a character. However he doesn’t get in the best way of something.
“What am I going to say to him? His eyes seem like a fish,” mentioned Rolly about Errol Spence. “If a combat goes to occur, it’s going to occur.”
