Sampson Boxing Renews Contract With Edwin De Los Santos

Sampson Boxing Renews Promotional Agreement with Lightweight Powerhouse Edwin De Los Santos

May 7, 2024 – Promoter Sampson Lewkowicz proudly announces he has renewed his long-term promotional contract with WBC and WBC #4, WBO #9 and IBF #10 lightweight Edwin “La Granada” De Los Santos (16-2, 14 KOs)

The 24-year-old De Los Santos, a hard-punching southpaw from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, has been with Lewkowicz’s Sampson Boxing for most of his career and found success in the United States, with nationally televised victories over fellow contenders, Luis Acosta (then 12-0), Jose Valenzuela (then 12-0) and Joseph Adorno (then 17-2-2).

De Los Santos has also picked up the WBC Continental Americas Lightweight Championship along the way and unsuccessfully challenged for the WBC World Championship last November, losing a controversial decision to a highly reluctant Shakur Stevenson.

“I am happy to have re-signed with my promoter Sampson,” said De Los Santos upon signing. “He has done everything he said he would do for my career, and we have grown to be like family. I look forward to another world title fight soon and this time, I hope it is a fight.”

De Los Santos’ trainer, and now also manager Humberto “Chelo” Betancourt, says he’s happy to be keeping the team in place for another run at a world championship.

“I have worked with Sampson for over 20 years, and he’s always kept his word,” said Betancourt. “Edwin is an excellent fighter who works hard in the gym, and he will be the lightweight champion of the world very soon.”

Lewkowicz, known for finding hidden gems like De Los Santos in gyms around the world, says he’s very happy to continue working with the Dominican slugger.

“Edwin De Los Santos is a terrific talent and a good man,” said Lewkowicz. “He has never backed down from any fight I have offered him, and he has the talent to become a dominant champion. I’m happy he has chosen to stay with Sampson Boxing and look forward to many more big fights and great accomplishments from him during his career.”
