One of the great fights of the year, and certainly one of the better fights in recent memory at the Super-Bantamweight division, Daniel Roman (27-2-1, 10KO) and T.J. Doheny (21-1-0, 15KO) both showed true Championship medal and fought a war throughout 12 rounds, fighting to the final bell, where Roman was awarded a MAJORITY DECISION victory. With this win, Roman is now the Unified WBA & IBF Super-Bantamweight World Champion.
First things first, the Super-Flyweight division is the gift that keeps on giving, and we have a re-match with two of the best on the horizon. LINEAL/WBC World Champion Srisaket Sor Rungvisai (47-4-1, 41KO) and world-class contender Juan Francisco Estrada (38-3-0, 26KO) met for what was a thriller back in February of 2018.
