If 2020 ended with the rise of boxing’s lightweight division, than 2021 is expanding with the inclusion of the super featherweights.
The division that Gervonta “Tank” Davis, Miguel Berchelt, Jo Jo Diaz and Jamal Herring reinvigorated is setting off 2021.
WBO 122-pound World Champion Angelo Leo finally faces Stephen “Cool Boy” Fulton Jr., on Saturday, January 23rd 2021.
Although Angelo Leo is champ he’s a underdog on 23 Jan, lots of fighters/friends I know are picking Fulton aka Scooter. Love it, and still..
