Promoter Sampson Lewkowicz of Sampson Boxing got his Christmas present a day early this year, as former interim WBA World featherweight Champion Javier “El Abejon” Fortuna has renewed his long-term promotional contract.
One of the sport’s most exciting knockout punchers, 25-year-old Fortuna (26-0-1, 19 KOs), from the Dominican Republic, is considered an irreplaceable member of the Sampson Boxing stable.
“This is my gift for this year, to continue working with a budding superstar like Javier,” said Lewkowicz. “He is on the verge of stardom and, like all my fighters, he is also like a son to me. I admire all of their loyalty and I wish them all a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.”
Lewkowicz also says the future is looking bright once again for everyone in boxing and sends his warmest regards.
“2015 will be a great year for my fighters and for boxing and I want to wish all my co-workers and brothers and sisters in boxing my sincerest wishes for a wonderful holiday.”
