Rolando ‘Rolly’ Romero Stops Anthony Yigit In The 7th Round To Retain His Interim WBA Lightweight Title

Not long ago, it was unclear who lightweight contender Rolando “Rolly” Romero would fight at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas on July 17. His original opponent, Austin Delay, backed out of the fight and made way for Anthony Yigit to step in. Then, things got a bit tricky when Yigit weighed in five pounds above the 135-pound limit. Still, Romero was committed to the fight and decided to move forward anyway.

Charlo vs Castano results and highlights: Rolando Romero stops Anthony Yigit, Amilcar Vidal edges past Immanuwel Aleem

Kind of an awful fight from a style standpoint, really ugly work between two guys whose styles didn’t gel to create anything approaching the “sweet science,” and Romero made himself the fight’s villain to the San Antonio crowd, too, a lot of roughhouse nonsense — elbows, shoving, grappling — that they didn’t like at all.

Rolando Romero Drops Anthony Yigit Three Times, Stops Him in Seventh

SAN ANTONIO – Rolando Romero made Anthony Yigit pay Saturday night, as promised. A day after some more weigh-in drama, the heavy-handed Romero remained unbeaten by knocking out the absurdly overweight Swedish southpaw in the seventh round of what went forward as a 140-pound bout on the Jermell Charlo-Brian Castano undercard at AT&T Center. Las Vegas’ Romero (14-0, 12 KOs) dropped Yigit three times – once in the fifth round and twice during the seventh round – before referee Rafael Ramos stopped their scheduled 12-rounder at 1:54 of the seventh round.
