Tomorrow night, undefeated featherweight prospect Stephen Fulton takes the next step towards being recognized as one of the emerging stars of the division when he takes on Esteban Aquino (12-5, 7 KOs) at The Sands Bethlehem Event Center.
The bout will be part of a ten-bout card promoted by King’s Promotions.
The main event will feature an eight-round junior welterweight battle between Anthony Mercado (11-4, 9 KOs) of Puerto Rico battling Victor Vazquez (10-4, 3 KOs) of Yonkers, New York.
Fulton of Philadelphia has an impressive mark of 13-0 with six knockouts.
In an era where most prospects do not see a serious challenge until they have fought more than 20 bouts, Fulton on the other-hand has already defeated five undefeated foes.
“Everything is good, I am ready to fight on Tuesday night,” said Fulton.
The 24 year-old Fulton doesn’t know too much about Aquino, but he is not taking him lightly.
“I don’t know much about him. I tried to fight some tape, but there wasn’t anything on him. This is not the 1st time that I have not seen my opponent, but it doesn’t mean that I won;t get the job done.”
With the quality wins already on his resume, Fulton feels the time for a big opportunity is in the future.
“I feel as though my time is now. I can see myself fighting for, and winning a world title in either 2019 or early 2020.”
Fulton believes that being from one of boxing hotbed cities in Philadelphia is a bonus as he can get great sparring with top-notch fighters.
“It helps being from Philadelphia. It makes a big impact that a lot of great fighters are from here. Sure there is a little pressure when you start winning to become the next champion, but it also makes you a better fighter.”
“Tuesday night, I am looking to show my skills and show separation that will let everyone know that I am on another level. I just want to continue to progress as I have some good fights lined up after this. The fans should just stay tuned as I am almost there.”
