Albuquerque’s own Angelo Leo is ready to add on to his perfect record as he takes on Sharone Carter on Aug. 3 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Leo is the only boxer to ever be represented by Mayweather Promotions and this fight will mark his third since joining Floyd Mayweather’s team.
Leo is 12-0 professionally with 7 KO’s. This fight at the Sam’s Town Resort and Casino will mark his second fight of the year. Leo believes that he is close to a world title shot and he is determined to get it.
“What I heard from staff members in good contact with Floyd (Mayweather), two more 8 rounders, one 10 rounder, and I am ready to go for a world title. So, I would say no more than two years, but it’s coming it is coming pretty soon,” said Angelo Leo.
Leo isn’t trying to look too far ahead though, as he does have a tough challenge ahead on Aug. 3. His opponent, Carter, is currently 9-2 professionally and Leo says he is a tricky guy, but Leo also believes he has had a great camp and feels more than prepared.
“He is a good boxer from St. Louis, he is 9 and 2. We devised a plan to neutralize this guy’s movement and we have him figured out. We are prepared for anything he brings,” said Leo.
