Angelo Leo vs Aaron Alameda- What a war

The beginning of the battle didn’t present a tale as though it would go to the final bell. Both men came ahead with their haymakers and successfully planted them on each other. In round two, Leo and Alameda traded some of the biggest blows. Despite entering into a risky exchange, neither pugilist pulled away from the challenge.

That said, Alameda constantly aimed at Leo’s right eye, causing it to swell up as the rounds flew by. It clearly disrupted the American boxer’s eyesight. Nevertheless, he kept moving forward and saw some success even in the later rounds. Well, that didn’t stop Aaron Alameda from doing his thing. From start to end, the fight was extremely intense.

However, they left it to the judges and Leo secured his first win after Stephen Fulton snapped his winning streak in January. No wonder he appeared pleased in the post-fight interview and clarified how he believed he landed more punches in the fight.
