Tapia Ready For Romero

By Compiled From Wire Services

Johnny Tapia might be the most unlikely candidate to restore some credibility to boxing.

The two 115-pounders will put their respective pieces of the junior bantamweight title on the line.

The 30-year-old Tapia (40-0-2, 24 knockouts) is a former drug user and wife abuser who credits his newly found religious faith for helping him return from a three-year boxing suspension to win the WBO title.

Romero (30-1) is seven years younger, clean cut and trouble-free. He has 27 knockouts in a division not known for power punchers.
