Toronto, ON – Undefeated lightweight prospect “Ill” Will Madera showed why he’s the one to watch in boxing tonight, January 28, at the Danforth Music Hall in Toronto, ON, scoring a stunning second-round knockout over the usually very durable veteran, Edgar Ramirez of Mexico.

Madera tore into Ramirez from the opening bell, ripping him with uppercuts and heavy shots to the body. It was a matter of time before Madera connected with a huge left hook that sent Ramirez sprawling to the canvas.

At the beginning of round two, Madera unloaded with a vicious combination to the body, forcing Ramirez to fall back towards the ropes. Madera then unleashed a fifteen punch barrage that went unanswered, prompting referee Alan Davis to stop the bout.

“Will is one of the best lightweight talents in all of boxing,” said Denis Benoit, CEO of Liveco Boxing. “He is continually improving as a fighter, and it’s just a matter of time before he gets the opportunity to showcase his skills on the world stage.”

With the win, Madera improves to 15-0 with 8 knockouts.

Sets sights on world title in 2019

Former lightweight title challenger Tony Luis made a triumphant return to the ring on November 24th in front of a packed house at the Casino Montréal, dominating and stopping rugged veteran Edgar Ramirez via sixth-round TKO.

Tony Luis controlled the action from the opening bell, peppering Ramirez with a stiff jab and relentless body attack. In the third round, Luis floored Ramirez with a crisp hook to the top of the head which sent him tumbling to the canvas. In round four, Ramirez’s punch output dropped significantly, and by the sixth round, Luis’s relentless attack had taken its tole. Luis closed the distance between the two, ripping several combinations to the head and body prompting referee Martin Forest to call a halt to the bout at 1:44 of the sixth round.

With the win, Luis’s record improves to 26-3 9 KO’s and marks an impressive seven-fight win streak.

“Tony Luis is a masterful boxer and is amongst the best lightweight in the world,” said Denis Benoit, Luis’s promoter and CEO of Liveco Boxing Inc. “We’re entertaining all offers, but we’re especially interested in fighting George Kambosos Jr., Ryan Garcia, Devin Haney, or Ray Beltran. A victory against any of these guys will propel Luis to where he needs to be to get another shot at the title. When this happens, he’ll be ready.” added Benoit.

With the win, Luis improves to 26-3 with 9 KO’s. He is undefeated since 2015 having dropped a highly disputed twelve-round decision against Derry Matthews for the interim WBA Lightweight Title. Since then he has won seven straight fights.
