Showtime will extend a busy 2021 pay-per-view boxing calendar with a Dec. 5 fight between five-time world champion Gervonta Davis and undefeated lightweight contender Rolando Romero.

The fight will be lightweight champion Davis’s third straight PPV appearance and second this year after beating Mario Barrios in a June 26 event. “Tank Davis is at the top of the boxing mountain and selling out arenas coast-to-coast for a reason,” Showtime Sports president Stephen Espinoza said in a statement. “His explosive power, style, and take-no-prisoners attitude make him a captivating, must-see attraction.”

Those three fights combined have generated approximately 1.7 million PPV buys, according to industry sources.
