Darren Till has a growing fan following. Apart from his heroics inside the Octagon, Till has also won over the hearts of the people with his honesty.
The Englishman just had a successful middleweight debut against former interim title challenger Kelvin Gastelum. With a win in the bag, the next obvious search would be that of a next contender. Till took to Instagram and challenged former two time challenger Yoel Romero for a fight.
Prior to the fight with Gastelum, Till had jokingly said that he would never fight against Romero. Many wondered if Till got cocky after his victory and hence contradicted himself within just a week. However, it quickly became clear that it was actually a drunken mistake on account of Darren.
Yoel Romero has also been linked with a title fight with Israel Adesanya in the beginning of the year 2020. With Paulo Costa out on medical grounds, “The Soldier of God” is the next logical option. However, what works against him is that he has lost his past 2 matches, both against Robert Whittaker.
