Stephen Fulton Confident He'd Stop Brandon Figueroa, Roman

By Chris Glover

Philadephia's Stephen Fulton Jr has set his sights on a unification clash against Brandon Figueroa or Daniel Roman after he dispatched of Isaac Avelar on PBC's most recent showing in Edinburg, Texas.

Fulton Jr entered Texas in the away corner against fellow undefeated fighter Avelar and put on a systematic display against the Mexican fighter who had the majority of the support in the arena on the night. Philly's Fulton gave his analysis on his 6th round stoppage victory.

He said, "Firstly I want to thank PBC for getting me this opportunity. I showed once again why I am a world champion and the real deal in the super bantamweight division, and why I'm the present and future of this division.

"It was a good fight but I showed I was the stronger fighter and he had no reply for what I brought to the table. I felt I dominated the fight and that reflected in the victory. and I want to thank everybody in Philadelphia who was supporting me when I was in the away corner. Big love to everyone in Philly."


Fulton Jr has now turned his attention to unifying the 122-pound division, with his eyes set on Roman and Figueroa. The current IBO champion discussed the possibilities of unification fights in the future.

The West Philadelphia native said, "They call me the best kept secret but since I've become world champion everybody is getting to know about Stephen Fulton Jr so I have to thank the IBO for giving me the opportunity to realise my dream in the first place.

"I come from West Philly, that's a hard upbringing. I've been fighting on the road my whole life, I did it in the amateurs, the world series of boxing and I did it as a professional. I will continue to do it as a professional to win the grand slam and have all the best at 122."

Fulton continued, "I don't care if I have to fight these fighters in their backyards I will do it. Figueroa does not want to fight me and if he does, he will get stopped in the mid rounds. If me and Danny Roman fight, it will be explosive but the same thing will happen, he will get stopped."

Now the PBC shills here at HaymonScene are trying to sell an IBO & interim WBA fight as a unification bout when neither guy is a real champion.
