Israel Perez Inks Deal With Sampson Boxing, Maravilla Box

Argentinean lightweight contender Israel “Cachito” Perez (23-2-1, 13 KOs) has signed a managerial agreement with middleweight champion Sergio Martinez’s Maravilla Box and a long-term promotional agreement with promoter Sampson Lewkowicz of Sampson Boxing.
 
33-year-old Perez, from Buenos Aires, Argentina, is a former WBA Fedelatin Super Featherweight Champion, and as an amateur, represented Argentina at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. Perez is currently undefeated in 15 fights.
 
Perez, as a new member of the Maravilla Box stable, which in addition to Sergio Martinez also includes world-ranked fighters such as Javier Fortuna, Alexander Brand and uncrowned light heavyweight champion Gabriel Campillo, will now be trained by super trainer Pablo Sarmiento.
 
“Israel has had long periods of inactivity and we’re going to fix that,” said Lewkowicz. “We’ve got him at the right weight now where he is very strong and ready to make his mark in the lightweight division. The difference in his technique and ability will be noticeable right away now that he’s working with Pablo as well.”
