Cornwall, Ontario (October 10, 2013) – Lightweight standout Tony “Lightning” Luis of Cornwall, Ontario, Canada makes his highly anticipated return to the ring Saturday, November 9 when he battles an opponent to be named at the Whitehall Athletic Club in Whitehall, NY.
A former WBC Continental Americas Junior Welterweight champion, the all-action Luis holds an excellent 16-1 record with 7 victories coming by way of knockout. On May 17, Luis showed no ill-effects from his lone career defeat, dominating durable Maurycy Gojko over six one-sided frames. Returning to New York State for the first time since his January 25 war with Jose Hernandez on ESPN, Luis believes a victory on November 9 will be another step in the right direction.
“I can’t wait to get back in the ring and explode,” said the likable Luis, who also works a full-time job assisting handicapped children and adults. “I’m 100% physically and mentally. Most importantly, I’ve spent time in the gym making improvements and I know that a victory moves me closer to another significant fight.”
“Tony’s an excellent talent and I am a firm believer that he’s going to be a player in the lightweight division in 2014,” said Greg Cohen, Luis’ promoter. “If everything goes as planned on the 9th, you’ll be seeing Tony in a noteworthy fight in the near future.”
