The challenger spoke out for the first time in January after being cleared of sexual assault.

Romero posted on Instagram: “After three and a half months of my name being slandered with false accusations, having to miss out on opportunities, cheated out of my dream, and out of a massive amount of wealth.

“The investigation into the allegations made against me has been formally closed.

“Charges were not filed because the allegations could not be substantiated because, as I always stated, I am innocent.

“I am now the symbol of freedom, purity, and love.”

Davis went on to instead face Issac Cruz, 23, and narrowly beat the Mexican replacement in a fight which was blasted by Romero.

He told FightHype: “Both of those motherf***ers were lucky I wasn’t in the ring that night. I could knock them both out at the same time.

“You know I truly believe this s***. I wouldn’t say it if I didn’t believe it. I thought it was a good fight. I thought Tank won. Everybody over here said Isaac Cruz won are just a biased dumbass.

“But did he do some efficient stuff? Yeah. Did he make Tank look truly inferior to what he actually is? Yeah.”
