This Saturday night at the 2300 Arena, undefeated Super Bantamweight Stephen “Scooter” Fulton will look to remain perfect when he takes on Eric Gotay in a 4-round bout on a show promoted by King’s Promotions.
The main event will see undefeated Prichard Colon (12-0, 10 KO’s) of Orocovis, Puerto Rico taking on Hector Munoz (23-13-1, 15 KO’s) of Albuquerque, New Mexico in the 8-round Jr. Middleweight fight.
Fulton of Philadelphia has a record of 3-0 with 1 knockout and he has had a good camp as he prepares for his 2nd consecutive hometown appearance.
“Everything has been great. I been working on a strength and conditioning. I have been getting great pad work and my trainers have been pushing me real hard. We are looking to fight 6-rounds but I am preparing for more,”said the 20 year-old Fulton.
Fulton has been trying find out about Gotay but has only found very little information on his opponent.
“The only thing I really know about him is that he has long arms and he likes to jab.”
Fulton, who made his Philadelphia debut with a 4-round unanimous decision over Benjamin Burgos on December 5 enjoy his hometown but he prefers to fight out of town.
“I enjoy fighting away from here. There is more pressure fighting home, but I am very focused.”
That pressure is nothing to new to Fulton as the decorated amateur was a National Silver Gloves champion, a Ringside champion and competed in the World Series of boxing where he went 2-1.
Fulton has been hailed by some as a future star of boxing and he wants to appeal to the fans.
“I want to make sure people notice me and enjoy my fighting style. A lot of people will notice me by the end of the year and hopefully I can get some television time. Take a good look at me and see where I am, because i a few years, I will be a world champion.
