FORMER WBA SUPER BANTAMWEIGHT KING – DANNY ‘BABY FACED ASSASSIN’ ROMAN

BACKGROUND…

Super Bantamweight Danny Roman got involved in the sport of boxing not necessarily because he had the urge to go and sought out a boxing gym, but more so because his father decided he needed to defend himself against the bullies that were harassing him from his neighbourhood.

At first, Danny confesses himself that he didn’t like boxing but after a few months he soon came to love it, starting to appreciate the discipline and fine art that he was being taught on a daily basis. Today having excelled at amateur level with a record of 61-10 he is the former WBA Super Bantamweight Champion with eyes now focused on regaining his crown.

Roman is Promoted by Thompson Boxing Promotions

Managed by Eddie Gonzalez

PROFESSIONAL RECORD – 27-3-1 (10 KO’s)

AKHMADALIEV CREATES HISTORY IN VICTORY OVER ROMAN!

After an intermission, former unified super bantamweight champion Danny Román overcame a slow start and survived 36-year-old former champion Juan Carlos Payano in a WBC Super Bantamweight title eliminator. All three judges saw it 116-112 in favor of Los Angeles’ Roman, who rallied in the later rounds to earn the unanimous decision.

“It’s always good to have your hand raised,” said Roman, who won the final four rounds on all three scorecards. “I can’t take anything away from Payano. He’s a veteran and he knows a lot of tricks. I had to adjust. It feels good to get a win again and I’m looking to keep that feeling going.”

Miami’s Payano, originally from the Dominican Republic, landed a career-high 261 punches compared to 152 for Roman (27-3-1, 10 KOs), who is ranked in the top five by all four sanctioning bodies. Payano (21-4, 9 KOs) suffered a cut above his left eye due to a head butt in the third round.

“We’re at the level and ready to fight the Luis Nery vs. Aaron Alameda winner,” Roman said. “I still have unfinished business with Murodjon Akhmadaliev. I want that rematch. If not that, then I’m ready to fight Angelo Leo.”
