Kubo and Román reach an agreement.

Japanese Shun Kubo and American Daniel Román reached an agreement to fight for the World Boxing Association (WBA) Super Bantamweight title. Both will go in the ring on September 3rd in Tokyo, Japan and, thus, will comply with the resolution issued by the WBA Championships Committee.

Kubo is the current WBA champion at 122 pounds. He earned his title on April 9th, when he defeated Venezuelan Nehomar Cermeño in 10 rounds. Thus, he snatched the championship from the South American and left his record at 12 wins with 9 knockouts.

Román is the second-ranked in the category. However, he has not yet fought for a world title, but he has been WBA-NABA Super Bantamweight Regional Champion. His record is 22 wins, 2 losses, one draw and 8 knockouts.

This will be the first time that Kubo exposes his WBA belt at 122 pounds.
