Stephen Fulton Jr picked up his first world title, claiming the WBO junior featherweight title with a wide but hard-fought decision victory over Angelo Leo, and we saw a big performance from Ra’eese Aleem in a stoppage win over Victor Pasillas, plus Rolando Romero stopping Avery Sparrow in the lightweight opener.
It was a really entertaining night of action on Showtime Championship Boxing, with the main event keeping an incredible pace for all 12 rounds of action, and Fulton (19-0, 8 KO) definitely proving he’s a true world class fighter at 122 pounds.
Even with Fulton’s excellent showing, Aleem (18-0, 12 KO) might deserve praise for the best showing of the night, as he really put a beating on Pasillas in what was expected to be a much closer affair than it was. We also saw some encouraging stuff from the prospect Romero (13-0, 11 KO), who fought a short-notice opponent and looked like a beast at times with his hard power shots.
Here’s a look at some of the best action from the card:
