Leo vs Fulton Preview
These fighters were slated to box for the then-vacant WBO junior featherweight title back on Aug. 1, 2020, but three days ahead of the bout, Fulton pulled out due to a positive COVID-19 test.
Leo then bested replacement fighter Tramaine Williams via unanimous decision for the belt and his 20th victory in as many fights.
“Being champion is something that I always wanted to be so now that I have the belt, I have the confidence I need,” the 26-year-old New Mexico native told ESPN. “But I don’t take my foot off the gas just because I’m champion. They say that once you’re champion, it’s actually harder. As bad as you want it, now everybody else wants it just as bad as you do. My mentality is the same now that I’m world champion and I’m gunning for more world championships. I’m not the hunted. I’m still hunting.”
Leo once again prepared for Fulton by sparring with eight-time major titleist Nonito Donaire in camp. Though Leo holds the belt, Las Vegas has tabbed his opponent as a slight favorite.
“I’m not surprised at all that Vegas has Fulton as the slight favorite,” Leo said, per ESPN. “I know that he has a lot of supporters. I’ve been an underdog before. I’ve been in these shoes before, so it’s no surprise to me. It just gives me more fuel for the fire. I’m not at all offended that he’s the favorite. This is boxing and Fulton is a good fighter, but I’m looking to prove on January 23 that I’m where I belong and that I’m world champion for a reason.”
Leo’s claimed nine victories via knockout. Fulton, who’s 18-0 professionally, has stopped eight matches. He last fought almost a year ago to the day, topping Arnold Khegai on Jan. 25, 2020, via unanimous decision.
“January 23rd, it’s gonna be fireworks,” Fulton said in a recent virtual press conference, according to Boxing Scene. “He’s a champion. He has that spark, that fire in him. He’s coming to fight, I’m coming to fight. I’m coming hungry, we’re both coming hungry, so it’s gonna be a great matchup. I feel as though the fight is actually a little bit underrated because we’re smaller guys, but me and him are … two [of the] top guys in the division.
“We’re in the top five, including the current world champs. So, we’re definitely gonna make noise, and we’re both coming to fight. We both have a chip on our shoulder. I feel like we both have something to prove. This fight is one of the biggest fights in the division, so I’m just ready to get it on.”
