WBA / IBF super bantamweight world champion, Daniel “The Baby Faced Assassin” Roman (27-2-1, 10 KOs) held a media workout Thursday afternoon at the City Angels Boxing Gym in Los Angeles as he prepares for his next fight against Murodjon Akhmadaliev. Roman squares off against Akhmadaliev next week Thursday, January 30 at the Meridian Island Gardens Arena in Miami, Florida as part of the live on DAZN in the US and on Sky Sports in the UK.
Here is what Roman had to say prior to his workout.
“Murodjon Akhmadaliev beat my teammate Isaac Zarate so I’m very familiar with him,” said Daniel Roman. “I know he’s a strong kid, an aggressive fighter, he’s hungry and he’s going to try to take me out as best he can.”
“He makes a few mistakes, he likes to fight with his hands down, not sure if that’s his style, but those are the flaws I see in him,” Roman continued. “Akhmadaliev might not have the experience as a pro, but he was a great Olympic amateur who won a bronze metal. At this level there are no easy fights. His style and my style are going to make for a great bout.”
“It was a great training camp like always,” concluded Roman. “We expect Akhmadaliev to come with his best and we are not taking him lightly. My shoulder injury is behind me and I’m feeling 100%. This is a world championship fight and we are ready to go.”
