Prediction,

Good match.

This is basically a 50/50 fight in my opinion.
Both these guys are absolute giants for 122, at least 5'9, both of them, same size I think, Roman is a consistent 122lb fighter, he hasn't been outside of 122 for 4 years. Flores has been above 126, but he's been down to 119 as well in the fight before his last, but both of them were at 122 in their last fights, both fought at 122 in at least 4 of their last 5 fights.

Neither of these guys have lost very often, neither have any real big world level wins, they seem to me to be on a similar level.

You could argue that Flores will win this, he is the puncher in this fight, he might be slightly more experienced.
You could argue that the champion will defend his title, because he is the younger fighter, 28 is prime age for any weight, 31 is not young for a featherweight. Roman has been much more active over the past two years. Flores fought twice in 2016-17, 3 or 4 times is really how often fighters should be fighting every two years at this level, Roman fought six times in 2016-17, and he has fought this year already, so he has been very active, much more so than Flores, who hasn't been more than one round since June 2016, so two years without a fight that lasted more than a round.

I think Roman will win this fight, it is a close call, tough call, he's probably a fairly heavy underdog, but no I think he'll beat Flores. I think this will be a close fight, maybe a majority decision.

Roman is a great kid and a real good fighter. He wont be denied, and will make the second defense of his title by either wide points or late stoppage. He's much better than his 2 loss record indicates.

R1) Flores much bigger initial reaction. Roman more measured early, with Flores swinging bombs early. Roman works jab, and throwing counters as Flores presses. Flores trying to be aggressor, but not overly effective, as he isn't landing many significant blows, and is getting countered. R1 to Roman.

R2) Started off sluggish in first 45 seconds or so. Flores throwing and missing some big shots, gets countered with a few. Then, Roman stands and trades for most of the rest of the round, center ring, fighting the fight of Flores. Both land, but Flores was landing more decisive shots by my view. Flores edges it.

R3) Start off trading, neither fighter landing much of significance. Fight works back to middle of the ring, and the rest of the round is fought in the pocket, with both fighters landing clean, but not damaging blows. Flores had harder shots, but Roman more accurate and measured. Roman squeaks round out.

R4) This round saw more of Flores being the aggressor, throwing big shots, but landing little of note, except for a few shots inside. Roman landing sharp counters to head and body. Roman's counters and precision winning it out. R4 to Roman.

R5) More of the same. Both fighters gave up on jab. Flores keeps pressing inside, gets countered with nice shots to head and body, and is getting worn out with body shots. Coming in over weight is hurting him here. Roman is fighting Flores' fight, and winning it. Roman rocks him nice at end. R5 to Roman.

R6) Flores tries to open up with a big shot, misses, and gets countered. More fighting inside. Flores works inside better this round, landing some nice shots in the middle of the round and a few at the end, but these exchanges dominated by Roman's precision, mixing of shots, and dominant body work. Roman wins R6 easy.

R7) More of Flores pressing, more of Roman countering with crisp shots to head and body. Fatigue showing more from Flores, as Roman starts to hit a few shots through his guard. When not fighting in center, Flores is trying to press and land a big one, but not having much success. Roman R7

R8) Flores continues to try to be the aggressor, but is getting picked apart with counters to head and body. Though not hurting him a ton, all are scoring and sapping energy. Flores not able to put much pop behind his shots as the round presses on, though scoring a few shots. Roman's action and precision wins him R8

R9) More nice body work from Roman. He is simply the more precise fighter, and it shows. Flores isn't changing his tactics to adjust to the more skilled fighter. Flores is game and continues to throw, but continues to get hit over and over. Roman R9

R10-12) Roman just the more skilled fighter. Continued to work the body, and be the more diversified puncher, and more skilled at adapting to the fight. Roman swept last 3 from his counters, body shots, and cleaner work.

Naruto's picture

A one sided beatdown just as I thought, Danny is so much better than his record indicates. If he just had a little more pop in his punches he would have had Flores out of there mid rounds from that punishing bodywork. Hope Flores is okay, a beating like that can shave years off your career/life.

Great fight!

I was very impressed by Daniel Roman, he boxed very well, he is a really good offensive fighter with variety, he attacks the head and both very well, he is not a puncher, but he does not lack power, he does damage to the body, lands forceful shots to the head as well. Roman is a good defensive fighter, not great, he took quite a lot of clean punches from Flores, but it was a very positive fight, he was defensively decent in this fight, not defensively brilliant, but he did well at evading a lot of Flores's punches when Flores came after him with shots at angles, and Flores with the reach advantage as well, so Roman, not a bad defensive fighter.

Flores did very well, he tried his best, he was aggressive in every round, relentless in most of them, and for 4 rounds, I thought he was winning, he was just so active, he was landing more punches, he was taking the fight to Roman. Flores showed a lot of toughness taking the body shots he took in this fight, he didn't go down, never showed any weakened desire, so credit to him for that.

I think Roman was a class above, and after 4 close rounds, Flores slowed down noticeably, Roman started to take over in round 5, he had a great 5th, 10th, and 11th, these rounds in particular, when Flores temporarily ran out of gas completely, had a minute or so when he couldn't even throw half decent punches, and Roman just punished him, battered away at the body with agonising shots, hit him clean upstairs as well. I think in the first 4 rounds, Flores was really physically pushing himself hard, Roman was putting a shift in, but he was a lot more conservative than Flores, was boxing at a controlled pace. You could argue that Flores could have done better had he not put such a massive amount into the first 12 minutes, but I think he needed to, to make it close for that amount of time.

I think Roman made a name for himself with this win, he is still not well known, but he is a world champion in his own right. It would be very good to see Roman in a unification fight this year. I think Dogboe is the best at 122, I think Roman would have a good chance against Iwasa and Vargas, but they are all good fights for the future.
