Figueroa recently defended his super-bantamweight titles against Luis Nery. And his long-time foe, Fulton was ringside for this fight. As ‘The Heartbreaker’ won this fight, Fulton went inside the ring to congratulate him.

Speaking to Showtime Boxing, he said, “Hell of a performance. I’m tall, I’m tall. Hell of a performance. I predicted it… It’s my time now. I’ve been waiting for this moment.”

The anchor asked Fulton whether he has some additional message for Figueroa. He responded, “I do, gotcha hat.”

“We’re gonna put up a hell of a performance to the WBC, WBA champ, I’m coming, I got the WBO baby!” 

‘Cool Boy Steph’ is an absolutely comical fighter who enjoys taking a dig at his opponents. That said, he saw this as an opportunity to paint shots at his rival, Figueroa. Although the WBO super-bantamweight champ had some words of wisdom for ‘The Heartbreaker’, he still didn’t spare him from his light trash talks.

Moreover, the undefeated Fulton expressed his interest to touch gloves with Brandon Figueroa for a gigantic title unification fight. He seemed in the most ideal mindset to go toe-to-toe against the Texas native in his next outing.
