Sources: Fulton puts up 122-lb. belts vs. Roman


Stephen Fulton will defend his unified 122-pound championship against Daniel Roman in a PBC on Showtime main event on June 4, sources told ESPN.

Fulton, 27, and Roman, 31, 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 Philadelphian 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.
