Sampson Boxing Inks Panamanian Rising Star
José “El Magnífico” Nuñez

(Panama City, Panama) Internationally recognized promoter Sampson Lewkowicz of Sampson Boxing LLC. landed a promotional deal with young Panamanian sensation José Raúl Nuñez Espinosa.  With only 19 years of age,  “El Magnífico” (The Magnificent) as is also known in his native country, is considered to be one of the most exciting boxers to watch.  The specialized press as well as the Panamanian Boxing Commission have awarded him the title of “Prospect of the year 2017."

Originally from Curundu Panama, and fighting in the lightweight division, Nuñez, who started fighting at the early age of 10, holds an undefeated record of 5-0 as a professional.

“I am very grateful that Mr. Sampson is going to promote my career as a professional fighter. Now is my turn to demonstrate him and everybody else that I came to this sport to be the best and beat the best” said Nuñez at an interview held at the Pedro “Rockero” Alcazar gym in Panama.  His manager and trainer José Murillo also stated “We are well aware of who Mr. Lewkowicz is and what he is able to accomplish for Nuñez, we can´t be more confident that he is in the best hands possible.  What Sampson promises, Sampson delivers, we have full confidence that we have taken the right decision signing with Mr. Lewkowicz”

“For me it is a great honor to work again with another Panamanian, as I did with ex world champions Anselmo "Chemito" Moreno and Roberto "La Araña" Vásquez and achieve another world champion of their quality.” Stated Sampson Lewkowicz after being interviewed.

El Magnifico is scheduled to appear in his first international fight this 9th of February, in Santa Fe Argentina against Lucio Alberto Ayala from Buenos Aires. The fight is being promoted by Sampson Boxing, Tello-Box and JEB Boxing and will be televised trough TyC Sports and VTV Uruguay.
