In the words of welterweight contender Jaron Ennis, Philadelphia fighters always find a way to win. Coming off of a hard fought win against Brandon Figueroa, Fulton extended his unbeaten streak with unanimous decision victory against former unified super bantamweight titleholder Daniel Roman. In a dominant effort, Fulton won 11 rounds on all three judges’ scorecards.
Moving forward, Fulton would like to continue fighting top fighters like Figueroa and Roman. During a recent interview, Fulton said that he like to fight fellow unified super bantamweight titleholder Murodjon Akhmadaliev or unified bantamweight world champion Naoya Inoue.
“I don’t think it’s far-fetched; I believe it’s realistic if [Inoue] comes up in time [before I move to 126 pounds],” he told ESPN.
“I don’t shy away from big fights. A lot of people wanna see [me vs. Inoue]; a lot of people wanna talk about that as well.”
By continuing to beat current and former world champions, Fulton believes that he will ultimately gain much of the notoriety that fellow champions have garnered.
“Had I been more known like Inoue. I’d be on that [pound-for-pound] list,” Fulton added.
Murodjon Akhmadaliev is set to fight Ronny Rios in San Antonio, Texas on June 25, 2022. As for Naoya Inoue, he is set to fight Nonito Donaire on June 7, 2022 in Japan.
