Fulton: I’m Giving Roman The Opportunity He Didn’t Give Me

Fulton and Roman

Stephen Fulton (20-0, 8 KOs) is enjoying having a target on his back.

Fulton, the unified super bantamweight champion (WBC, WBO) puts his belts on the line tomorrow night at The Armory, Minneapolis. The challenger is formal dual title holder at 122lbs Danny Roman (29-3-1, 10 KOs). At yesterday’s final press conference Fulton found some irony in facing the 31-year-old.

“It feels good to be in the position and be the hunted. It feels good to be in this position because I’ve called him out when he had his titles, and they didn’t look my direction. But then when they didn’t have the titles, they looked my direction because I had it. Now I’m giving him the opportunity that he didn’t give me.”

The confident Philadelphian believes his variety and ability to adapt will prove too much for Roman.

“You’ve all seen I can fight on the inside; I can fight on the outside. I can fight whichever way I want. So how I wake up Saturday morning is going to determine how I fight Saturday night. I can do whatever I want. I don’t have one style to me.

“He’s lost three times, and maybe one draw. There’s four ways to get to him. There’s no way to get to me yet. There’s no one who’s figured that out.”
