Undefeated tremendous bantamweight contender, Ra’eese “The Beast” Aleem (18-0, 12 KOs), who captured the WBA Interim title in his final combat, was ringside on the latest 122-pound conflict which noticed Luis Nery (31-1, 24 KOs) lose his WBC title when he was knocked out by Brandon Figueroa (22-0-1, 17 KOs).
Aleem, who’s at present ranked WBA #1, is focusing on all of the champions at 122-pounds, particularly the WBO champion, Stephen Fulton (19-0, 8 KOs). Since unified champion, Murodjon Akhmadaliev, who holds the IBF and WBA titles, fights for one more community, Aleem says Fulton needs to be combating him earlier than he steps within the ring with Figueroa.
The unification between Fulton and Figueroa is slated to happen on September 11, with Showtime televising.
Fulton was final seen within the ring in January when he decisioned Angelo Leo for the WBO title.
He would not plan to combat earlier than the September encounter – however Aleem believes they need to collide first – with the winner dealing with Figueroa.
“Stephon Fulton is a good fighter, boxer, but when we step within the ring, I am going to give him his first loss.” Aleem acknowledged.
“He is ready on the sidelines [to fight] Figueroa, and we needs to be combating, and the winner of Fulton and I needs to be combating [Figueroa]. Let’s maintain it actual, each time I’ve stepped up, I’ve dominated. The largest duck within the division is certainly Fulton.”
Aleem, who’s managed by Greg Hannley of Prince Ranch Boxing and promoted by Marshall Kauffman’s Kings Promotions, is a on a mission to change into the undisputed champion at tremendous bantamweight, and received’t cease calling out all of the champions till he will get his shot.
