Katy Wilson, Abreu Part of Big Santo Domingo Weekend

Sampson Boxing and Manguita Promotions will return to the Dominican Republic on August 11 and 12 at the Coliseo Teo Cruz in Santo Domingo with history-making back-to-back shows, each featuring IBF World Title fights.

On August 11, Santo Domingo's hometown hero Katy Pamela "La Super Baby" Wilson (15-1, 9 KOs) will make the first defense of her IBF Female Super Bantamweight Championship against mandatory challenger Crystal Hoy (5-4-3, 2 KOs) of Las Vegas via the Philippines.

The popular 21-year-old Wilson won her title last March against well-respected multiple world champion Ada Velez.

Also featured that night will be an important "All Dominican Republic" junior welterweight matchup, as established top contender Victor "Mermelada" Cayo (28-3, 20 Kos) of Santo Domingo will face unbeaten Julio "La Para" De Jesus (15-0, 14 KOs) of San Francisco de Macoris for the Vacant IBF Caribbean title.

On the undercard, former world champion Roberto "La Arana" Vasquez (31-5, 21 KOs) will meet the Dominican Republic's Geysi Lorenzo (11-3, 2 Kos) in a super bantamweight 10-rounder.

Four more bouts are scheduled featuring Dominican featherweight Braulio "El Chavo" Rodriguez (7-0, 7 KOs), Dominican lightweight Argenis "El Caballo" Lopez (14-0, 3 KOs), Dominican lightweight Ranses Payano (10-1, 5 KOs) and Santo Domingo's own former women's super-bantamweight world champion Marilyn "La Cachorrita" Hernandez (21-8, 12 KOs) in separate bouts.

The following night in the same venue, IBF Female Featherweight World Champion Daihana Santana (29-6, 13 KOs) will defend her title against mandatory challenger Helen Joseph (11-1-1, 6 KOs) of Nigeria.

In the main supporting bout, the Dominican Republic's Juan Carlos "Merengue" Abreu (10-0, 9 KOs) will face Bayamon, Puerto Rico's John Nater (9-2, 8 KOs) for the Vacant IBF Youth World Junior Welterweight Title.

Also appearing on this night's show will be popular Dominican super bantamweight prospect Jonathan Guzman (5-0, 5 KOs), Panamanian light middleweight Azael "Turbo" Cosio (14-1-2, 11 KOs), Dominican light welterweight veteran Francisco "El Ahogado" Lorenzo (38-11, 17 KOS), Dominican super featherweight Angel "El Gato" Luna (6-0, 4 KOs) and Dominican bantamweight Ruben Vicente (6-3, 2 KOs).

"I am proud to be bringing these historic shows to the Dominican," said event promoter Sampson Lewkowicz. "This country has a wave of top young talent on the way up; Javier Fortuna was only the beginning. It has been my pleasure to work with Manguita Promotions to develop so many future champions."
