Danny Roman: I Don't Care Who Steps Up - I'll Fight Any Champ

After three successful world title defenses on the year, WBA champion Danny Roman (26-2-1, 10 KOs) is entitled to a well deserved break. The Los Angeles native, however, was already thinking unification after his tenth round stoppage of Gavin McDonnell on Saturday night.

"It has been my intention to unify ever since I became world champion last year in September," said Roman after his win against fellow 122-pounder McDonnell. "I don't care who steps up to the challenge. I'll fight any of them."

Roman, 28, is at the peak of his physical prime, and smartly, wishes to capitalize on the momentum he's built since entering the world champion ranks when he stoped Shun Kubo in the ninth in his home country of Japan. Successful title defenses followed in February against Ryo Matsumoto in Japan, and Moises Flores in June outside of Dallas, Tex.

His scrap against McDonnell on Saturday from Chicago capped off a banner year for the "Baby Face Assassin."

"He's going to get some rest and start fresh early next year," said Alex Camponovo, matchmaker and general manager of Thompson Boxing. "Obviously there is a lot of work to do on his next fight. We are looking at the other champions in the division and possibly bringing Danny back home to fight in his hometown of Los Angeles."

Roman is in the first year of a multi-fight agreement with streaming outfit DAZN USA and new partner Matchroom Boxing.

Roman vs Dogboe should be made quickly. Both wants to unify. Roman should call Bob Arum.
