Stephen Fulton Jr., A Gift From The Gods

His seemingly infinite stamina, unlmited focus, perfect reflexes and razor sharp skills are the perfect combination against everyone he’s faced. Would the impeccable style of Stephen Fulton Jr. be enough to silence Naoya Inoye next fight?

For a fan of the sweet science, Cool Boy Steph is a gift from the most high. His performances in the ring are showcases of talent, focus, discipline that seem to create that glow of invincibility seen in few fighters of any generation. You’ve seen that glow in Andre Ward, the fighter who, after taking a loss at 12 years old, never lost another throughout his entire, storied career.

The Glow

The glow was on Roy Jones Jr. throughout much of his professional career, as he demonstrated superhuman speed, power, and athleticism in the domination of his prime opponents.

And of course, we’ve seen it on the man they call “Money;” Floyd Mayweather, as he dominated weight class after weight class, taking out superstar world champion after superstar world champion, before eventually retiring from the sport unscathed.

Steph Fulton cruised to an easy victory over Angelo Leo in the main event of 2021’s inaugural Showtime Championship Boxing telecast, live on Showtime from Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut. He certainly had that glow against Angelo Leo. Fulton used his jab with pinpoint accuracy to establish range, luring Leo to chase and engage in close. When Leo managed to get close enough to bang on the inside, it was Fulton who did the effective work, landing hooks and uppercuts to the body and upstairs.

Angelo Leo fought as hard as he could until the final bell, but was unable to find an answer to either of Fulton’s gameplans.

It begs the question: just how good is Cool Boy Steph?
