“They’re Avoiding Me”: Daniel Roman Shares Frustration of being Snapped by the Boxing Authority

former bantamweight champion Daniel Roman is scheduled to make his ring return against Ricardo Espinoza Franco, this Saturday night. Their fight will be the co-feature fight with the main event being between Luis Nery and Brandon Figueroa.

However, in the extended schedule of fights released by the network, Daniel Roman seems to be left out. The list states that only the winner of the main bout will proceed to fight against Stephen Fulton, the undefeated WBO champion.

Roman said, “I know they’ve got the schedule already set up for the winner of them against Fulton in September. But you can’t skip me. I’m mandatory for the WBC. They have to give me the chance – I earned it. I won the mandatory [position] back in September, so I’m still here. I don’t know why they’re skipping me already.”

What irritates Roman the most is that he expected a shot at Nery’s title after his unanimous decision victory against Payano. However, now it seems like Luis and Brandon will have consecutive shots for the unification of the title.

Daniel Roman VS Ricardo Espinoza Franco

The fight between these two will take place on Saturday and will be televised on T.V. With the fight expected to bring a six-figure cheque for Roman.

Daniel shared his thoughts on the match-up. He said, “This is not going to be an easy fight because I know my opponent is a tough fighter from Tijuana who is coming with everything he’s got. He’s got a lot of power.”

“so I must be smart on how I throw my combinations. I believe my experience in big fights is going to be the difference on May 15. I’m expecting a rough fight and I’m ready for an intense battle.”

A victory on May 15 will get him one step closer to his ultimate goal. That is to become a world champion once again.
