Daniel Roman to Fight Defending Unified 122-Pound Champion Stephen Fulton

Daniel Roman is hoping to take down a champion…

Stephen Fulton will defend his unified 122-pound championship against the 31-year-old Mexican American boxer in a PBC on Showtime main event on June 4, according to ESPN.

Daniel RomanRoman is former unified super bantamweight champion, having held the WBA (Unified), and IBF titles from 2019 to January 2020, and previously the WBA (Regular) title from 2017 to 2019.

Fulton and Roman are among the sport’s most reliable-action fighters, two volume-punchers who fight aggressively but with craft.

Fulton (20-0, 8 KOs) threw over 1,110 punches when he outpointed Angelo Leo in January 2021 to win his first title. The Philadelphia-native then added a second belt with a thrilling majority decision victory over Brandon Figueroa in November.

If Fulton, ESPN‘s No. 1-rated junior featherweight, can triumph over Roman, a matchup with Murodjon Akhmadaliev would crown an undisputed champion. But first, he needs to get past Roman.

Roman, ESPN‘s No. 5 122-pounder, has won two bouts since a split decision loss to Akhmadaliev in a January 2020 title fight.

The Los Angeles native made four successful defenses of his title before the defeat.
