June 4, 2022 will be remembered as one of the best days on the boxing calendar this year. Over in Australia, Devin Haney will fight George Kambosos Jr. for the undisputed lightweight title. Elsewhere, Kenichi Ogawa and Joe Cordina will fight for the IBF junior lightweight title in Wales. Meanwhile, a battle is brewing at the Armory in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Stephen “Cool Boy” Fulton will put his unified super bantamweight title on the line against former titleholder Daniel Roman. Not to mention, David Morrell Jr. will also put his super middleweight title against Kalvin Henderson moments before they step into the ring. Needless to say, it will be a night full of action in Minneapolis.
Who Is Stephen Fulton?
Record: 20-0 (8 KOs)
Hometown: Philadelphia, PA
Stephen Fulton is perhaps one of the best fighters that the general public does not know about. Coming out of the City of Brotherly Love, Fulton has amassed 20 victories with eight knockouts and no losses. Recently, he has elevated his skill level even further. His last four wins have come against four undefeated fighters, including a war with Brandon Figueroa. While his next opponent, Daniel Roman, is not an undefeated fighter, he does bring a ton of experience at the highest level. If Fulton emerges victorious, he hopes that he can become the undisputed champion of the division.
Who Is Daniel Roman?
Record: 29-3-1 (10 KOs)
Hometown: Los Angeles, CA
At 33 years old, Daniel Roman is one of the most experienced super bantamweight contenders I the world. Not only has he held the WBO and IBF super bantamweight titles, but he’s also shared the ring with fighters like Shun Kubo and TJ Doheny. Despite his success, Roman suffered a setback when he lost his titles to Murodjon Akhmadaliev in 2020. More recently, he’s reeled off two unanimous decision victories en route to another shot at the title.
