ANDl american Stephen Fulton (20-0, 8 KO) managed to unify two of the super bantamweight crowns by defeating the WBC world champion, his compatriot Brandon figueroa (22-1-1, 17 KO) last night at the Park Theater in Las Vegas.

Fulton put into play his WBO crown and in the end he takes both of them to his home in Philadelphia.

The combat was somewhat confused, with a constant initiative from Figueroa, but with good kickbacks from Fulton. There were constant grabs and fighting at close range, so the combat could have perfectly taken place in an elevator.

Fulton’s greater precision earned him more rounds than Figueroa, so the scores of two of the judges, 116-112 in favor of Fulton, can be considered fair, not the one that saw a draw, 114-114. The decision, therefore, was majority.

Cool boy steph Fulton now owns two of the four crowns, the other two (WBA-IBF) are enjoyed by the Uzbek Murodjon Akhmadaliev, so now that numerous unification fights are being prepared, we could wait and want to see a match between the two to have a complete champion with all four belts in his possession, something that has never happened in the super bantamweight category (55,300 kg ).
