Roman, Doheny Agree Their Bout Will Name Division's Best

WBA super bantamweight champion Danny Roman and IBF title holder TJ Doheny formally addressed the media on Wednesday for the final time before they clash in a highly anticipated unification fight this Friday from The Forum in Los Angeles.

The 12-round world championship fight will be streamed live on DAZN, one of the latest sports streaming services to enter the U.S. market.

The 28-year-old Roman, who is from Los Angeles, defends his title for the fourth time, while the Australian Doheny, 32, is making his second defense.

Roman was brief in his statements to media on Wednesday, which took place from the roof deck of the JW Marriott in downtown Los Angeles.

"I'm thankful for this opportunity," said Roman, who is promoted by Thompson Boxing and Matchroom Boxing. "I think it's going to be a terrific fight. We are both at the top of our game. The fans in attendance and those watching on DAZN are going to see a lot of action."

Doheny agrees with Roman, that their unification will prove which of them is the best in the division.

“I am looking forward to Friday night. It is great to be back in Los Angeles and under great circumstances. I have fought in New York, Tokyo, Boston and now I am coming to Los Angeles to unify titles and I am thrilled," Doheny said. 

"I think Danny and I have the same mindset, we want to prove who is the best in the division. Danny likes to come forward, I like to be a craftsman but make no mistake, I can bang too. We will see what happens on Friday night on DAZN and I hope everyone tunes in to watch two of the best face off.”
