Mandatory super bantamweight contender Daniel Roman is less than a month away from his crack at unified WBC and WBO world champion Stephen Fulton Jr.
Their Showtime televised fight is scheduled for Saturday, June 4 in a Premier Boxing Champions event from The Armory in Minneapolis.
Roman is hoping to shock the betting favorite, who is coming off a 2021 Fight of the Year unification win against Brandon Figueroa.
Roman has been studying a lot of tape on Fulton to prepare for the contest and feels that he'll be ready for his style.
“It’s been a great training camp. We’ve been getting ready for the best in the unified champion Stephen Fulton. It’s a fight you have to see. We’re going to have the same energy that I’ve had on social media. You can consider him the best in the division right now. He’s the champion I want right now.
“We know that Stephen Fulton can make the right adjustments. It’s going to depend on the fight he brings and the fight I bring. Whoever makes the best adjustments is going to win the fight. You could say it will be like a chess match. I can do a little bit of everything and he can do a little bit of everything as well. It depends who makes the right adjustments that night.
“This is a fight where I can earn a lot of respect. That’s what every fighter wants. Even when I became a unified champion, they still had me below the other champions. I think that goes for Fulton as well. Everybody is trying to prove themselves as the best in the division. This is the fight. I’m fighting against who is considered the best in the division and I get a chance to be back on top.
“It’s true that when I was the champion, Fulton was calling me out and I didn’t give him the chance. He called me out and I had different plans. I wanted to unify the belts and be undisputed. I’m thankful that he’s given me the chance to fight him now that he’s champion."
