Jose Roman


Jose will be a known quantity to avid readers of TopClassBoxing, as many years ago he was one of the very first Interviews we were able to secure, back then I wrote that the Garden Grove fighter had the required tools at his disposal to be a threat in the years that followed. Well, I am glad to say the prediction of which as now come full circle as Jose is now only a few fights from his dream of capturing a title or two.

Growing up Jose and his brother Jessie who is also a talented fighter fell in love with the sport of boxing after being introduced to it by their father. After an amateur career that spanned over 120 fights. Jose felt he had the necessary tools to step up, deciding it was time to dip his toe into the professional ranks and as can be witnessed today he never looked back since, holding a career of 21-1-1.

Doubletree Hotel, Ontario, California –  Lightweight Jose Roman (23-1-1, 16 KOs) delivered a devastating opening round knockout over Carlos Cardenas (20-11-1, 13 KOs) in the “Path to Glory” main event Friday night at the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, Calif.

Roman sized up the shorter Cardenas early in the first, and before the round could cross the halfway point, Roman unleashed a multitude of punches that sealed his knockout win (1:26 mark).

“I shook him very early in the first,” said Roman, who is from Garden Grove, Calif. “I knew he was hurt so I just kept attacking him until he finally dropped.”

“Even though it was a quick fight, we all witnessed what Jose Roman is capable of,” said Ken Thompson after the fight. “Bigger fights are certainly in his immediate future.”

With the win, Roman extends his winning streak to nine
