Sampson Lewkowicz Signs Jairo Llanes to Promotional Contract


dameimagenmedianaPromoter Sampson Lewkowicz of Sampson Boxing is proud to announce the signing of lightweight prospect Jairo “Jimmy” Llanes (7-0-1, 6 KOs) to a long-term exclusive promotional contract.

From a fighting family, Llanes, from Los Mochis Sinaloa, Mexico, is the son of former Mexican Junior Middleweight and Middleweight Champion, as well as world title challenger, Jaime Llanes, who was stopped in seven rounds by then-WBO champion Verno Phillips in 1994.

In fact, Llanes says he dedicates his career to his father who, due to his bad lifestyle and partying habits, wasted what could have been a great a career. He has vowed not to follow in his father’s footsteps.

20-year-old Llanes will make his debut under the Sampson Boxing banner on Friday, December 5 at the Arena Union in Los Mochis, when the takes on fellow Mexican Mao Corona in a six-round battle.

Llanes vs. Corona will serve as the co-main event of the evening. WBA #13 ranked middleweight contender Jorge “Demonio” Cota will face tough veteran Esau Herrera of Mexico City in the eight-round main event. The night of boxing is promoted by Sampson Boxing and Martin Estrada’s M Master Promotions.

“Jimmy is a very talented prospect and is already very popular in his native Los Mochis,” said Sampson Lewkowicz. “He is the third fighter brought to me by my trusted advisor in Mexico, Fernando Dominguez from Dominguez Promotions (along with Jorge Cota and Hugo “Cuatito” Ruiz). Fernando is my right-hand man in the country and he says this young fighter has what it takes.”

Llanes started boxing at age eight and had 70 amateur fights, losing just four. Highly decorated, Llanes fought in 29 amateur championship fights and lost only twice. As a professional, he has stopped his last four opponents.

“I’m happy to be working with Jimmy and I predict big things for his future,” continued Lewkowicz. “We will bring him along at the right speed and help him become the next great fighter to come from Mexico.”
