    What do you think of his potential? Saturday he stopped British lightweight champ Jon Thaxton in 6. Ranked 4th on boxrec at lightweight. Both of his two defeats were close. Losing to an Englishman in England and a Pole in Poland both on narrow points verdicts.

    Excellent opportunity for Romanov! [​IMG]

    Guzman is a very slick, evasive defensive fighter, so it won't be easy, but I'm hoping he can do it!

    Romanov will now challenge Fernando Angulo 22-5(14) for the vacant IBF Lightweight title in Florida on July 11.

    Let's hope Don King hasn't paid the referee and/or judges to help his fighter Angulo.

    Your right. He is going to have to do a lot more than Angulo will to win in California against a Don King latino fighter.

    Romanov had trouble securing a visa for his match with Angulo so it was canceled. Now Ali Funeka(South African) and Joan Guzman(Dominican) will fight for the vacant belt.

    Romanov needs a new manager or promoter. He hasn't fought since April 4 2008. To put that in perspective that was two weeks before Calzaghe-Hopkins.

    I found some news on Romanov!

    The article is from December.

    It's a shame he hasn't fought since April 2008. He could (still can) be a force at Lightweight. Hopefully the inactivity hasn't ruined him.
