(BROOKLYN, N.Y.) Boxers Gervonta Davis and Rolando Romero are set to square off for the World Lightweight Championship at the Barclays Center on May 28.

The two were supposed to fight on Dec. 5, but Romero was pulled from the match after he was accused of sexual assault. Later that month, the investigation was closed without charges being filed.

Davis (26-0, 24 KOs) is listed as No. 10 on ESPN's pound-for-pound rankings, and Romero (14-0, 12 KOs) is coming off back-to-back TKO victories in 2021.

Tickets start at $107 and can be purchased here.
