Raeese Aleem Eager For Showdown With Stephen Fulton

Prince Ranch Boxing's undefeated super bantamweight contender, Raeese "The Beast" Aleem (16-0, 10 KOs), who is ranked WBA #13, is eyeing a showdown with WBO #1 Inter-Continental super bantamweight champion Stephen Fulton (18-0, 8 KOs), who is also rated WBC #6.

“I am coming off the best win of my career, a fourth-round knockout on ShoBox, and I want to make a statement to the boxing world,” said Aleem. “Fulton is a ranked contender, and currently holds a form of a title. I am letting it be known that I am very eager to challenge him and that I want his belt.”

Aleem, who is managed by Greg Hannley of Prince Ranch Boxing, is looking to vault himself into a world title shot by next year.

“Aleem took a hard fight in his last bout on ShoBox and passed with flying colors," said Greg Hannley of Prince Ranch Boxing, Aleem's manager. “The fans want to see good fights right now as boxing returns and I think this is a very makeable, fan-friendly fight.”

Aleem’s promoter, Marshall Kauffman agrees that this is a very intriguing bout.
 
“This has the makings of a classic,” said Marshall Kauffman of Kings Promotions. “Aleem is a tremendous fighter and has beaten two undefeated fighters as well as a battle tested warrior in his last fight. I think a fight with Fulton would be a great bout. Currently, these are the type of fights we’re missing in boxing and we need to get back to them, and what better time than now to start.”

Earlier this year Aleem made his televised debut on ShoBox, defeating Adam Lopez (19-4-2, 9 KOs) of San Antonio, Texas, via a fourth-round knockout. Aleem also holds wins over former undefeated fighters WBO #9 Marcus Bates and DeVonte Allen.
 
"I keep saying this, but I want to prove that I am the best super bantamweight in the division," Aleem continued. “I am constantly trying to fight the best opponents because I want to be a legend in the sport of boxing.”

Lovely prospect fight, both these kids eminently deserving of a prospect focus thread. Really effing struggling to get my ass back to work on the project though.
