  Danny Roman Training Camp Quotes

Former unified super bantamweight world champion Danny Roman shared insight into his training camp and more as he nears his showdown to regain top billing against unified WBC and WBO 122-Pound World Champion Stephen Fulton Jr. taking place this Saturday, June 4 live on SHOWTIME from The Armory in Minneapolis headlining a Premier Boxing Champions event.

The Los Angeles-native Roman (29-3-1, 10 KOs) first became a champion in September 2017 when he traveled to Japan to stop Shun Kubo and capture the WBA belt. After three successful defenses, Roman added the IBF title in a 2019 action fight against then unbeaten T.J. Doheny. Following a narrow split-decision loss to Murodjon Akhmadaliev in 2020, Roman bounced back with dominating victories over Juan Carlos Payano in September 2020 and Ricardo Espinoza in May 2021.

Now, he will look to regain his unified status at 122-pounds against the fast-rising Fulton in a matchup of highly-skilled and aggressive combatants. Here is what Roman had to say ahead of Saturdayís showdown:

On his matchup with Stephen Fulton Jr.:

ďIím up against a very skilled fighter who doesnít have many flaws, but every man has a weakness, and Iím going to exploit Fultonís. I believe my style will be very difficult for him to adjust to. Heís never been in the ring with an experienced fighter like me. I know what needs to be done to be victorious in this fight. The world will see a greatly improved version of myself in this fight. Iíll be throwing a lot of punches till the final bell and Iím preparing to go the distance.Ē

On fighting for another world championship:

ďIíve worked my way back to this position with a lot of sacrifice, dedication and perseverance. These opportunities donít come by for most fighters, so Iím grateful to my entire team for believing in me and sticking by my side. Iím fighting for two world titles, this time for the WBC and WBO belts, and best believe Iím going to leave everything in the ring.Ē

On his recent training camp:

ďIíve added some elite strength and conditioning to my weekly workouts for this camp and I feel stronger than ever. In addition, Iím super focused on my diet and eating correctly. Iíve paced myself perfectly in this camp, and I know on fight night Iíll be peaking.Ē

On fighting once again on SHOWTIME:

ďIíve never lost a fight on Showtime, so itís fair to say I relish the fact that Iím fighting on this network. Everyone knows that if youíve fought on SHOWTIME, youíve made it to the pinnacle of boxing. SHOWTIME is legendary for having shown some of the greatest fights in boxing history. Iím hoping my fight with Fulton lives up to the great fights of the past.Ē
