Ismael Barroso vs Rolando Romero

The interim championship fight between super lightweight challenger Rolando “Rolly” Romero and seasoned southpaw Ismael Barroso takes place on May 13, 2023.

Ismael Barroso started boxing in 2005 and drew his opening contest with Carlos Cardenas. With a record of 24 wins, 3 losses, and 2 draws, 22 of those victories came by way of knockout; Ismael Barroso will enter the ring. He fought Kevin Mitchell to earn the WBA lightweight interim title in 2015, but champion Anthony Crolla defeated him the following year. Despite the young opponent, Ismael Barroso prepares even more fiercely to finish off his foe.

On the other side, Rolando Romero enters this contest determined to make a name for himself in the super lightweight class. Romero made his professional debut in 2016 and defeated David Courtney via technical knockout in the opening round. Romero last competed in May 2022 and suffered his first career defeat, falling to Gervonta Davis by TKO for the WBA (Regular) lightweight championship.

Ismael Barroso vs Rolando Romero

The WBA presently has Ismael Barroso at the top of the 140-pound category. The Venezuelan boxer has a lot of experience going into this fight, which is clearly to his great benefit. Romero, on the other hand, made his professional debut in 2016, 11 years and 3 months after Barroso, whose first fight as a professional took place in 2005. Romero has competed in 14 fewer matches than Barroso. Compared to Barroso’s 116 professional rounds, he has competed in 59 fewer.

The young guy will therefore demonstrate his skills on the field despite Barroso’s experience and other factors. The 40-year-old boxer may be returning some blows, but Romero is anticipated to put up a valiant fight. Rolando Romero is therefore predicted to turn things around, recover from his prior defeat, and continue his winning streak by knocking out Ismael Barroso.

The Pick: Rolando Romero via KO.
