Default Tony Luis named Goodwill Ambassador!

Cornwall, Ontario (April, 5, 2012) – Rising junior welterweight star Tony “The Lightning” Luis of Cornwall, Ontario, Canada has been named an Ambassador of Goodwill by the World Boxing Council (WBC).

The current WBC Continental Americas champion at 140 lbs, Luis is 13-0 with 5 knockouts, building a great reputation both in and out of the ring. Luis, who was recently profiled by Yahoo Voices as a young fighter to look out for, has a college degree and is a full-time social worker in Cornwall.

Upon noticing many of the youngsters were angry and needed direction, Luis helped create a boxing program, which quickly became a successful outlet for the struggling youths.

After leaving his first job and receiving an outstanding reference letter from his employer, Luis accepted a job working in an alcohol and substance abuse treatment center for young aboriginals.

Although he had initial worries of not being accepted since he is not of native descent, he connected well with the youths and put his full efforts into assisting them.

“Tony Luis is the kind of young man boxing needs,” said Jill Diamond, Chairwoman of the WBC Cares Program. “He is a champion in the ring and an inspiration to young people outside of it. We are proud to make him a Goodwill Ambassador for WBC Cares.”

The humble 24-year old was both thrilled and honored that the WBC chose to name him an ambassador.

“Being named a Goodwill Ambassador means the world to me,” exclaimed Luis. “It’s in my nature to help those in need and I’ll continue to do so for years to come. I appreciate the WBC for recognizing me and I hope to further represent them by winning more of their titles in the near future.”

Luis returns to the ring Saturday evening when he faces veteran Ferenc Szabo at the Claude-Robillard Center in Montreal.
