Leonard is currently undefeated with 28 wins 0 Losses and 2 draws with 8 fights settled by way of TKO (technical knockout). He lives in Italy with his wife and children and sometime this past Novem- ber (2012) before his title defense on December 1st I was able to catch up with him and have an in depth conversation with him.


Here is that interview ASM: Leonard hello and welcome Leonard: Yeah … Hello, thank you, thank you very much, I am glad to be here …


ASM: Tell us who you are as a boxer and what your weight category is and how you got into boxing. Leonard: well ever since growing up in Sierra Leone I always wanted to be involved in combat sports so when I came over from Sierra Leone to Italy in my early days I didn’t have any friends and I found out that there was boxing gym right next to my house and so I said let me go over there and make some friends and start doing what I have always wanted to do and I have never looked back ever since.


ASM: So what weight category do you fight in? Leonard: I am a welterweight and that is the 67.7 kilograms category …. I don’t know how much that is in pounds but it is the category of Mayweather and Pacquaio. Anyway I am the current Euro- pean Champion and I am going to be defending my title next Saturday (That Title Defense was back on December 1st 2012 a week after this interview was done)
