Alex Camponovo, the General Manager and matchmaker for Thompson Boxing (which handles Roman) explained to - "We're entering into a co-promotional agreement as we have in the past with other partners that we've had. Case in point, Gary Shaw, we co-promoted with him on a number of our fighters and champions. Same thing happened with Banner Promotions, who we're still co-promotig fighters like Ruben Villa and Michael Dutchover.

"And being that Matchroom is now in charge and they have a deal in place with DAZN we saw fit that this was the right move for us. We had a bunch of different options, which gave us the opportunity to go ahead and pick the best one for us. It's very exciting for Danny it's very exciting for us, it's a brand new platform.:

As for the length of this deal, Camponovo explained - "It's a term that's going to last two years for the time being. The activity level for him is going to be terrific and considering what's ahead and the other champions in the division, I'm pretty sure that we'll be able to unify the title - which is Danny's biggest dream."

This is a five-fight deal that will begin on October 20th with Roman facing Gavin McDonnell in Los Angeles and according to Camponovo - "he's going to be back early next year - the first three months of 2019 - then in the summer and then again in the fall."
