Level Р4Р: Fulton beat Roman effortlessly


Armory, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. In the main fight of the evening, the unified champion of the second bantamweight (up to 55.3 kg) American Stephen Fulton (21-0, 8 KOs) beat the ex-unified champion compatriot Daniel Roman (29-4-1, 10 KOs) and remained the leader of the division.

The starting round was held in a chess confrontation. Both jabbed a lot. Fulton acted much more accurately, controlled the distance and pace of the fight, deftly left on his feet, failed Roman several times. In response, he began to act even more aggressively, which immediately bore fruit – he evened out the course of the confrontation.

So far, everything is predictable: Fulton uses the entire area of ​​the ring, leans on superiority in speed, maneuverability and anthropometry. Roman puts pressure, tries to impose a power confrontation. The champion has more successful moments. It feels like Fulton is boxing with a margin of safety, which can not be said about Roman. Instead of the expected stubborn confrontation, so far it’s 6-0 or 5-1 in favor of the champion.

The challenger aggressively spent the 7th three-minute period, but there was nothing to consolidate the success. The champion failed the aggressor and successfully countered or acted ahead of the curve. Fulton is very good. Albeit not in terms of resume, but in terms of performance, this is a fighter from the top ten of the P4P rating.

Roman tried to go for broke in the championship rounds, but Fulton was not going to give the opponent the center of the ring either. Cool fight, but not competitive. Let’s wait for the judge’s verdict. 119-109, 120-108 and 120-108.
