When Stephen Fulton and Angelo Leo meet on Saturday for the WBO junior featherweight title, an exciting match is going to be taking place. Neither fighter has been defeated, so history is going to be made. Keep reading for all the boxing news and picks in our Fulton vs Lee betting preview.
The fight is going to be taking place at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., where things are sure to be spicy for fans and those betting online.
Both fighters have had a bit of a lengthy layoff since their last fight. They should both be in prime physical form, ready to take their frustrations of the past year out on one another.
Lee is a +130 underdog. This is the first time in nearly a year that he has fought, as his last matchup was back on Jan. 25, 2020.
Fulton vs Lee Betting Preview
A Look at Angelo Lee
A resident of New Mexico, Lee is going to be fighting for the 21st time in his career when he takes on Fulton this weekend. He is yet to suffer a defeat, though there’s an interesting trend with him. And it’s likely the main reason for him serving as the underdog: out of his 20 wins, 11 of them have been via decision. Taking that into consideration, it means he has just 45% of his wins by knockout.
He is often unable to deliver the knockout blow and has to rely on the judges to determine who the victor is. That’s something he should be working on coming into this bout, looking to get the knockout.
Lee’s last fight, against Tramaine Williams on August 1, was also at Mohegan Sun Arena. So, maybe there’s another added boost, his second consecutive fight at the same venue, which may be something to remember when doing your boxing betting.
A Look at Stephen Fulton
It’s been a long layoff for Fulton. When the bell rings to signal the start of his bout with Lee, it will be the first time in 363 days that he’s in the ring, ready to fight. That means he’ll be in top physical form, but it also means that he may have forgotten a few things.
He defeated Arnold Khegai via unanimous decision at Barclays Center during that last match. He enters into this one with an 18-0 career record.
Like his current opponent, he does not win by knockout very often. Only eight of his wins have come via knockout, so Fulton is a bit reliant on the judges.
The key for him is going to be to get off to a quick start, given the long layoff. If he isn’t aggressive in the early rounds, Lee might be able to get to him and do what he wants.
You never know what’s going to happen until the bell rings to signal the start, but a quick beginning can go a long way for Fulton.
Only one of these guys will remain undefeated at the end of the day.
Who You Should Bet On
The question of who to bet on here is a bit of a difficult one, but it needs to be answered. When dealing with two undefeated fighters, you have to take a deep look and trust your gut.
Fulton packs more of a punch, while Lee is aggressive in spurts. The aggression of Fulton would make him the fighter to pick when looking at our boxing odds. He is hungry after 363 days without action. It’s been a long year for so many, and this is his outlet.
Fulton is not only going to win, but he’ll do it via knockout. You heard it here. Fulton -160. Place it, and good luck. It’s going to be a great fight.
