The undefeated, blue-chip prospect Darius “DFG” Fulghum (11-0, 10 KOs) of Katy, Texas will headline his first-ever show against tough challenger Ronald “Flatline” Ellis (18-4-2, 12 KOs) of Lynn, Massachusetts in a 10-round super middleweight match on Golden Boy Fight Night on DAZN.  

The event will take place at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino. 

“I’m excited to be headlining my own card. Moments like this is what I’ve sacrificed and trained so hard for,” said Fulghum. “I truly believe I’m ‘Destined for Greatness’ and on June 27th the DFG Army is going to show out strong.”

“I’m excited for the opportunity,” said Ellis. “I believe I have the experience and the skill-set to come out on top. I know perfect timing feels like I’m too late and I know I’m still great in spite of my mistakes, so be ready for a show on June 27.”

Golden Boy CEO Oscar De La Hoya said of the fight: “With his combination of huge punching power and savvy ring intelligence, Fulghum is quickly rising up the ranks from exciting prospect to legitimate contender. On June 27, he takes a giant step up, headlining a Golden Boy Promotions main event against Ronald Ellis, who has shared a ring with some of the top dogs in the super middleweight division. Is Darius ready? We absolutely think so.”
