Saul Roman ready to introduce Curtis Stevens to “Mexican Toughness”
UNCASVILLE, CT – Rough and tumble veteran Saul Roman, 37-9, 31 KOs, has been waging ring wars for almost ten years as a professional. He’s fought many top pros, and in addition to the wealth of experience he brings into the ring with him, Roman, known as “La Fiera” (The Wild Beast), also boasts a national heritage that all but proves that he can fight.
Saul Roman is a proud native of Mexico, one of the greatest boxing factories in the entire world.
On August 3rd, Roman takes on rising middleweight contender Curtis Stevens, 24-3, 17 KOs, at the Mohegan Sun Casino, on the next edition of the popular Fight Night boxing series. The NABF middleweight title bout is part of a boxing triple header that includes two more 10-rounders, Eddie Chambers vs. Thabiso Mchunu and Tomasz Adamek vs. Dominick Guinn. The NBC Sports Network TV broadcast begins at 10:30 PM.
Roman will enter the ring as the underdog against the streaking Stevens. However, the wily veteran from Mexico is prepared to introduce his lauded opponent to the toughness that boxers from his country are known for. Roman will be the first Mexican Stevens has ever fought, and the Wild Beast is betting it will be a rude awakening for the Brooklyn boxer.
Fight Night alumni, Gabriel Rosado knows Roman first-hand. The two fought their own 10-rounder three years ago in Atlantic City. Rosado won the bloody war on points, and remembers Roman well.
“He is a game fighter,” Rosado said of Roman. “He also has a long reach and a really good jab.”
Roman will do his best to utilize the height and reach advantages he holds over Stevens, but this fight may become a war of attrition, waged in the trenches and along the ropes. When the fight gets tough, Roman will not only rely on his heart and the punching power that has claimed 31 victims.
He also plans to show Curtis Stevens something he’s never seen before – what it means to be a Mexican fighter.
