Abdullah Mason To Test Himself Against Luis Lebron Next

On July 6, the talented southpaw prospect Abdullah Mason (13-0, 11 KO’s) will return to action versus Puerto Rican fighter Luis “Popeye” Lebron (20-5-1, 13 KO’s). Due to his electric performances to date, Mason has garnered the attention of many boxing fans and active fighters alike. In fact, there is a large contingent of boxing heads who believe that Mason is on track to become one of the sport’s undeniable future stars.

Given this high praise, there is no doubt that Mason would like to turn in another sensational performance on July 6. Obviously, the best outcome available would be to flatten and stop Lebron by knockout. At the moment, Mason is riding a three-fight win streak with only two of thirteen opponents to date reaching the final bell. If Mason were to secure another KO, this would be especially impressive since, out of five losses, Popeye has never been stopped in his professional career.


While Mason is certainly not looking past Lebron, it would be foolish to not acknowledge that the southpaw knockout artist doesn’t have higher aspirations. In a brief Q&A with Fight Hype, Mason delved into his thoughts on the matter.

“I believe I’m the best out there coming up. I believe that the people see what we see. But if I am slept on, we will prove [it] to the people . . . Anybody in my division is a potential opponent for me. Besides my brothers right here, my blood brothers, everybody is a potential opponent for me. So, we are just focused and we are ready. There is no specific names I want to call out right now. But once you get to the top, you got to be ready for anybody. And I am inching my way there, so hopefully I’ll be there soon.”

For the time being though, Mason still has some more showing and proving to do. So, let’s see if the young technician can live up to his hype one more time when he shares the ring with Luis Lebron. Yet, if he maintains the course that he’s currently navigating, then the boxing world should be treated to another entertaining dispatchment. Tune on July 6 to find out!
