(JULY 29) Sampson Boxing chief
Sampson Lewkowicz says he and his promotional partner, Carlos
Gonzalez of Best Boxing, are happy and proud of the building
excitement in Panama for their blockbuster return to the
beautiful Megapolis Convention Center in the Hard Rock Hotel in
Panama City, Panama, on Saturday, August 10, entitled "LAS VEGAS
IN PANAMA II".
The entire country has boxing fever in advance of their
three-world-championship headlined by the return of superb
Panamanian WBA Bantamweight Super Champion Anselmo "Chemito"
Moreno (33-2-1, 12 KOs) making the eleventh defense of his
118-lb belt against Colombian southpaw William Urina (24-2, 20
KOs) in a 12-round duel.
Remaining seats for "LAS VEGAS IN PANAMA II" are priced at $100,
$200 and $300 USD ringside and are available at all Ticket Plus
outlets as well as the Hard Rock Hotel.
Also scheduled are budding
superstar Oscar Escandon's (22-0, 15 KOs) fight for the interim
WBA World super bantamweight championship against Venezuelan
former world champion Nehomar Cermeno (21-5-1, 13 KOs), as well
as Venezuela's WBA female featherweight Champion Ogleidis Suarez
in the first defense of her title, a rematch against Colombia's
Liliana "La Tigresa" Palmera (21-10-3, 15 KOs).
"This event will be like the Superbowl of Panama," said Sampson
Lewkowicz. "The people of Panama will be glued to the TV to
watch their national heroes in action in tough fights, while
those lucky enough to get a ticket will see what boxing in Las
Vegas is like without leaving their homeland. We are opening up
more seats to accommodate the tremendous interest in this great
show. I congratulate the people of Panama for their wonderful
passion for world-championship boxing."
25-year-old Ogleidis Suarez is from Caracas, Venezuela. She won
her title by beating then-undefeated Katy Wilson Castillo in
2011. She has already made two successful defenses of her belt,
including a TKO 7 over next opponent Palmera in 2012. In
addition to being a world champion boxer, the remarkable Suarez
is also a professional glamor model, actress, sports
commentator, television presenter and professional dancer.
31-year-old Liliana Palmera hails from Monteria, Colombia. A
professional boxer since 1999, Palmera has already challenged
for a world titles five separate times at various weights and
always come up short.
Undercard match-ups will be announced shortly.
The event will also be televised live by Panama TV Max Channel 9
