  • Comments Thread For: Daniel Roman: I'm The WBC's Mandatory For Nery-Figueroa Winner; You Can't Skip Me!

    By Keith Idec - Daniel Roman feels like a forgotten fighter. The former IBF/WBA 122-pound champion appreciates the six-figure purse he'll collect for a fight Showtime will televise Saturday night. But when the network released its extended schedule of fights last month, Roman noticed that the winner of the main event Saturday night between Luis Nery and Brandon Figueroa is slated to box unbeaten WBO champion Stephen Fulton on September 11.

    If Roman gets past Saturday, I'd like to see him matched up with Aleem possibly for the WBA regular since Figueroa is "unifying??" against Nery. The winner could get the shot against Akhmadaliev and eventually undisputed

      Unification's out trump mandatory's so it looks like the Fulton fight's a goer. Roman is rated #3 with the WBA & #6 with the IBF, so instead of sounding off about fighting for the WBC belt why not throw the gauntlet down to Akhmadaliev?

        “But you can’t skip me. I’m the mandatory for the WBC. They have to give me the chance – I earned it. I won the mandatory [position] back in September, so I’m still here. I don’t know why they’re skipping me already.” - Daniel Roman

        How did the WBC make him the mandatory, yet they have him ranked #2?

          Roman will have to wait in line because WBC will tell him straight out unification trumps mandatory

            Roman’s going to have to wait in line. Fulton is already guaranteed the winner of Nery/Figueroa. After that, Michael Conlan is set to face the winner between that one. MJ is also in the picture. I’d love to see MJ vs Fulton for undisputed.

              I just don't understand the WBC nowadays! How is he the mandatory, but Carlos Castro is WBC #1? Who did Castro beat to become WBC #1 Contender?

                  These alphabet organizations are wacky and inconsistent when it comes to their rankings. At least The Ring’s rankings are fairly consistent compared to them.
