Danny “The Baby Faced Assassin” Roman (20-2-1, 7 KOs) is the current NABA super bantamweight champion. The 26-year-old from Los Angeles is inching closer to a world title shot after successfully defending his title for the fourth time against veteran Enrique Quevedo on Friday, Aug. 26, 2016, from the Omega Products Events Center in Corona, Calif.
With the one-sided win, Roman pushed his winning streak to thirteen and will likely move up the WBA rankings where he sat at number eight entering his fight against Quevedo.
“I know I belong with the best,” said Roman, who first appeared on the WBA rankings at number fifteen in 2015 and has incrementally moved up ever since. “Quevedo couldn’t hit me and he never seemed comfortable.”
Before his fight against Quevedo, Roman knocked out Christian Esquivel in May and Ramiro Robles in February.
In 2015, Roman went a perfect five-for-five, earning wins versus experienced boxers such as: Erik Ruiz, Daniel Noriega, Christopher Martin, Giovanni Caro, and Miguel Tamayo.
“Boxing consumes my life,” said Roman, who is trained and managed by Eddie Gonzalez. “I don’t care much for the nightlife. I’m dedicated to boxing. All the hard work is starting to pay off.”
“We are very pleased with Danny’s progress,” said Ken Thompson, president of Thompson Boxing Promotions. “Over the last year, he’s faced an increased level of competition and has performed extremely well against boxers far more experienced than him. Our plan is to continue to place him in tough fights to get him ready for a world title shot in the near future.”
Roman stands 5’5” and was born on May 10, 1990 in Los Angeles.
