The 24-year-old super-welterweight from Kent, signed to JE Promotions, won 60-54 in his second six-round contest, which marked the day before the anniversery of his pro debut - May 12, 2018.
His 30-year-old Central American opponent, based in Spain, has also takent other top talents the distance before, such as Harley Benn and former British welterweight champion Johnny Garton.
Fuller gave a good account of himself against an experienced opponent in another learning fight for the prospect.
Manager Joe Elfidh praised his welterweight charge, "Another good learning fight for Lenny. We'll be sitting down in the week to discuss the next three fights, but we'll be considering a Challenge belt contest this year, then Southern aArea soon after.
"He works hard, he's a full-time pro so he's constantly in the gym. I think he's the future of boxing in Kent and he's ready to be let off the leash."
Trained by Lee Page at the Maidstone-based Combat Sports Academy, Chart Sutton’s Fuller has so far experienced a whirlwind start to his paid career with six contests within his debut year punching for pay.
Fuller wants to end 2019 on a Southern Area title fight, he explained, “By the end the of the year I want to have the Southern Area title, that’s my goal. I’m looking to get to 10-0 with the Area belt at the end of 2019.”
