Greg Cohen of Greg Cohen Promotions is proud to announce the signing of one of Canada’s top rated prospects, Tony “Lightning” Luis (14-0, 6 KOs) to a promotional agreement.
24-year-old Luis is a native of Cornwall, Ontario, who first caught the eye of many boxing observers with an impressive TKO 5 over Adrian Valdez on ESPN Friday Night Fights in June of 2010.
Gifted with blazing hand speed and a vicious left hook to the body, Luis has already won the WBC Continental Americas Junior Welterweight Championship via KO1 over former NABA Champion Alejandro Barrera in October 2011 and was named a Goodwill Ambassador by the WBC.
As an amateur, Luis was a seven-time Ontario Champion, a 2006 Eastern NY Golden Gloves Champion, won three National silver medals and defeated 10 Canadian National Champions.
During the day, he works as a counselor on an Indian reserve near his Cornwall, Ontario home. He is trained by his father Jorge.
“Tony Luis makes an excellent addition to our stable and we’re very proud to be working with him,” said Greg Cohen. “He has made the jump from excellent amateur to outstanding professional and we predict big things will happen in his future.”
