stephen fulton and brandon figueroa will fight to unify 122-pound titles in las vegas on showtime.

  • Date: Saturday, Nov. 27

  • Time: 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT

  • Prediction: Fulton UD

  • Background: This is a classic matchup of boxer (Fulton) vs. brawler (Figueroa), although Fulton demonstrated in his dominating unanimous-decision victory over then-titleholder Angelo Leo in January that he’s willing and capable of mixing it up. That victory gave Fulton his first major belt. And there presumably will be more to come. The 27-year-old Philadelphian is one of the most gifted young champions in the sport, although he hasn’t proven that over long period of time. Fulton said he ability to “adjust and outthink” Figueroa will lead him to victory. Figueroa, 24, is a relentless pressure fighter who wears his opponents down with volume punching. That’s what he did in his upset, seventh-round knockout victory over then-unbeaten Luis Nery in May, which earned him his first legitimate title. The Texan is the underdog once again but you can bet that he’s going to make Fulton work hard no matter who has his hand raised.
