When he was undefeated, Angelo Leo felt like he was on top of the world. He felt even better once he grabbed a world title. Having a spotless record provides certain fighters with an aura of invincibility. But while Leo believed that he couldn’t be touched, Stephen Fulton brought him back down to earth.

In the first defense of his WBO super bantamweight title, Leo came up incredibly short, losing a wide unanimous decision. Since then, Leo (22-1, 10 KOs) has had more than two years to think about what happened. In addition to mulling over what went wrong, he's also worked on his game.

So far, the adjustments he’s made have worked out well, resulting in two consecutive victories. Although he’s back on track and looking to keep things going, Leo is hoping that he’ll eventually meet up with the man who embarrassed him.

“I definitely want to get that one back,” admitted Leo to Tha Boxing Voice. “I know the fight was a great fight, I think the fans would love the rematch.”

Immediately after taking Leo's title, Fulton went on to become a unified champ and the best fighter at 122 pounds. However, his days on top came to an end thanks to Naoya Inoue, the division’s undisputed champion.

For Fulton, the plan is to move on up and attempt to become a two-weight champion. Leo, since 2023, already made the move. He’ll continue to get acclimated to life against bigger and stronger men when he takes on Mike Plania on January 31st.

From here on out, it doesn’t quite matter what Leo does. Whether he becomes a multi-divisional champion or a pound-for-pound star, he’ll still be bitter over what took place against Fulton. So, until they run things back, he won’t quite be satisfied.

“It definitely can be a fight in the future.”
