THE FOLLOWING QUOTES WERE GIVEN WHEN ANGELO LEO WAS SET TO FACE STEPHEN FULTON JR. LEO WILL NOW FIGHT TRAMAINE WILLIAMS DUE TO FULTON TESTING POSITIVE FOR CORNAVIRUS... Boxing is back on Showtime this Saturday, at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut with a main event featuring New Mexico's Angelo Leo fighting for the vacant WBO 122-pound title. Promoted by Mayweather Promotions, Leo had this to say about his chance at a world title: “This is something I’ve worked my whole life for, so my preparation has been the best I’ve ever had, both physically and mentally. This is the day I’ve been waiting for and I have to seize the opportunity.
“Floyd [Mayweather] was in the gym with me a couple of times giving me pointers and helping work through my game plan. His wisdom combined with my trainer’s knowledge really meshed together for me. Floyd just told me to just stay calm, treat it like any other fight and do what I do best. I know the mental strength that Floyd has, and I’ve learned from it. I’ve learned from the best.
“This would be a great win for my hometown of Albuquerque [New Mexico]. We haven’t had a champion since Johnny Tapia and to become a champion after him would mean a great deal to me and to the city.
“As far as not having fans in the arena, I don’t think it will have an effect on this fight. It’s like sparring but more intense. I’m the type of fighter that if I smell blood, I’m going to go for the kill.
“I just need to vary up my attack. I have good footwork to get on the inside. My head movement is strong, and all of that is going to be key in this fight. I think he has some trouble with fighters who move backwards against him, so I’m going to use my boxing too. We’re prepared for anything we need to do in there.”
