Torres Inks Promotional Agreement with Sampson Boxing
Wed, 14 Nov 2012
Sampson Lewkowicz of Sampson Boxing is proud to announce that Colombian middleweight power puncher Jose Miguel "Mochuelito" Torres (26-5, 23 KOs) has signed an exclusive multiyear promotional agreement with Sampson Boxing LLC.
33-year-old Torres is probably best known for his NABO and NABF title-winning KO 6 over previously undefeated Patrick Majewski last November. Torres' brother, Ricardo, is a former junior welterweight world champion.
Having rattled off another three knockouts since the huge victory over Majewski, Torres is now rated #16 by the WBC and #8 by the IBF at 160 lbs.
"I am very excited to work with Mochuelito and his Team. I will announce his next fight shortly," said Lewkowicz. "
Torres' team, manager Joel Rojas and advisor Cesar Osorio both say they are proud to be a part of the Sampson Boxing Team and looking forward to bringing Torres to the next level in his career.
Given Lewkowicz's relationship with World Middleweight Champion Sergio Martinez, the move puts Torres on a very short list to eventually face "Maravilla."
