Rolly Romero’s sister, Angelica Romero, is a retired judo player, having made only a few media appearances. Angelica also has a baby daughter, who will turn eight this year.
The younger sister of Rolly Romero caught the eyes of many after her brother’s fight in 2020. And they were left even more impressed after learning Angelica is a skilled judo player.
Angelica might have retired, but Rolly is keeping up the family tradition. Their father, Rolando Romero Sr, was an acclaimed boxer in Cuba and made his way to the US in his 30s.
Rolando is also a coach to his son, who has conjured an impressive record of 15-1 in his boxing career. His only loss came against Gervonta Davis.
On May 13, Rolly returned to the boxing ring to fight against Ismael Barroso, and though he might have won, many aren’t convinced by his boxing skill.
The boxer has been told to mandatorily fight against Ohara Davis, a notice he has ignored. Romero now has his eyes set on the match against Ryan Garcia.

The younger sister of Rolly Romero, Angelica, has stayed away from the spotlight, despite many fans of the boxer wanting to know about her.
The age gap between Rolly and his sister Angelica is one and a half years.
In 2020, after her brother had just knocked out Arturs Ahmetovs in the second round, he was being interviewed by ESNEWS. That is when Angelica made one of her brief public appearances.
In the video, Angelica is introduced as a judo master and was later questioned if she could put up a fight against Ronda Rousey. Angelica preferred to stay put, but her mother replied Angelica would emerge victorious against the former UFC star.
Later in the interview, when the interviewer further questioned Angelica about her future in judo, Angelica said she had retired from the sport. When asked why, the younger sister of Rolly simply said she no longer likes it.

Her daughter was previously seen coming out of the bus before Rolly vs. Gervonta Davis’s fight in 2022. The boxer shared a picture of him walking out with his niece to the bout he lost.
Recently, Ohara Davis called out Rolly for ignoring the fight against him. The British boxer said he had previously knocked out Rolly during a sparring session in Las Vegas.
