Tonight at 9 pm ET on Showtime, we’ve got a tripleheader led by a 122-pound WBO title fight between Angelo Leo and Stephen Fulton Jr.
Bad Left Hook will be here with for round by round updates on each fight, with Wil Esco on the RBR call.
Leo and Fulton were originally meant to meet one another for the vacant belt last August, but Fulton’s battle with COVID canceled that, and Leo defeated Tramaine Williams to claim the title instead. The 26-year-old Fulton now has his rescheduled opportunity, the first title defense for the 26-year-old Leo.
How to Watch Leo vs Fulton

The co-feature is another 122-pound bout, as unbeaten fighters Ra’eese Aleem and Victor Pasillas square off for an interim WBA title, which more than anything puts the winner in line for bigger fights.
In the opener, Rolando Romero is facing very short-notice replacement Avery Sparrow in a 12-round lightweight bout. Romero’s interim WBA belt is not on the line as it would have been against original opponent Justin Pauldo, who missed weight by five pounds.
