Danny Roman Dominates, Retains WBA Title from Japan

ABOVE: WBA champion Danny Roman lands a crushing shot on Ryo Matsumoto Wednesday from Tokyo


ORANGE, Calif. (Feb. 28, 2018) – Danny Roman (24-2-1, 9 KOs) delivered another brilliant performance Wednesday night from Japan, handedly outpointing Ryo Matsumoto (21-2, 9 KOs) through twelve rounds to retain the WBA super bantamweight championship by unanimous decision.

Scores: 119-109,119-109, 118-110.

Roman, 27, traveled from his hometown of Los Angeles to Tokyo for the first title defense of his career. Roman used a combination of superior tactical ability and timely pressure to keep the taller Matsumoto off balance.

“I’m thrilled with the decision,” said Roman, who is trained and managed by Eddie Gonzalez. “We came here well prepared to defend our championship and we did just that. I’m extremely thankful to all of my team for helping me get this win.”

“Danny continues to shine on boxing’s biggest stages,” said Ken Thompson, president of Thompson Boxing Promotions. “He was a man on a mission. He faced a tough opponent in Matsumoto, but he made it look easy. That’s what world champions do.”

“Danny made another statement win tonight [Wednesday],” said Alex Camponovo, matchmaker and general manager for Thompson Boxing. “He wants to fight the best in the division and in time he’s going to get that opportunity. We’re going to enjoy this win and hopefully have another fight for Danny in the near future.”

The 12-round world championship fight, dubbed “The Challenge,” was promoted by Thompson Boxing Promotions in association with Ohashi Promotions and took place at Korakuen Hall in Tokyo, Japan.
