Angelo Leo won the World Boxing Association (WBA) Continental North America featherweight belt with a third round technical knockout over Mike Plania on Wednesday night at the Whitesands Events Center in Plant City, Florida.
A new Probox TV event featured Leo and Plania in the main event, who put on a short but explosive fight that ended in favor of the former.
The American fighter finished the fight with one punch to the liver that sent Plania to the canvas, unable to recover, and saw the opportunity to become regional champion go to his opponent’s hands.
Leo, 29, continues on his path to a future world title shot and won his third consecutive fight to show that his quality and strength are still there.
Leo’s record stands at 23 wins, 1 loss and 11 knockouts, while Plania now has 29 wins, 4 losses and 16 knockouts.
