David Magowan (Northern Ireland) wrote in: I wanted to personally send you some details about Paul Roma’s boxing career. Roma’s overall record in boxing was 3 fights, 2 wins, 2 ko’s, 1 loss, 0 draws. His first fight was a defeat to Jerry Arentzen (his last ever win as he went on to lose 16 of his last 17 fight, the other was a no-contest), then his 2 wins came against Norman Fortini on April 1st 1992 (1st round knockout) and against Norman Shink on May 22nd 1992 (2nd round TKO), both fighters were debutants and were their only fights. The date of Roma first fight was March 6th 1992. I hope this information is useful to you. The following source comes from http://www.boxrec.com/boxer_display.php?boxer_id=054015
