You could use a Text[] directive to control precisely the font, weight, 
size, etc., of each textual element (or options such as AxesStyle and 
LabelStyle for more global settings). For instance,

Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 2 Pi},
  PlotLabel ->
   Style[TraditionalForm[Sin[x]], FontFamily -> "cmmi10",
    FontWeight -> Bold, FontSlant -> Italic, Black, FontSize -> 24]]
