Angelo Leo wins vacant WBO 122 pound world title

Over the weekend Angelo Leo won the vacant Super Bantamweight world title by unanimous decision. The scores were 117-111, 118-110 and 118-110 and while you could argue these were slightly wide he thoroughly deserved the decision.

His opponent Tremaine Williams started off well countering Leo and making him miss but as the rounds went on Leo’s consistent body work and pressure was clearly tiring Williams out. Williams was preparing for another fight when he got the call so perhaps he wasn’t in the best shape but he clearly started to feel the pace after the 5th round.

I was impressed by how relentless Leo was and enjoyed his work on the inside which led to him winning a clear decision. He is expected to fight Stephen Fulton next who unfortunately had to pull out due to testing positive for Covid-19.
