Boxing: Leo returns June 19

Super bantamweight boxer Angelo Leo, a former world champion and an Albuquerque native, is scheduled to return to the ring on June 19 in Houston against fellow contender Aaron Alameda.

Leo (20-1, nine KOs) made the announcement Wednesday on Facebook. The Leo-Alameda fight is listed on boxrec.com as a 10-round bout on a card headlined by a WBC middleweight title bout between champion Jermall Charlo and challenger Juan Macias Montiel.

Leo won the WBO 122-pound title on Aug. 1, 2020 with a victory by unanimous decision over Tramaine Williams. He lost the title by the same outcome to Stephen Fulton in his first defense on Jan. 23.

Leo-Alameda is a battle of once-beatens.

Alameda (25-1, 13 KOs), of Nogales, Sonora, Mexico, lost his bid for the WBC version of the 122-pound title on Sept. 26, 2020, dropping a unanimous decision to Luis Nery.

Leo now lives and trains in Las Vegas, Nevada.
