Kina Malpartida's Opponent To Be Announced in Peru

Promoter Sampson Lewkowicz of Sampson Boxing will hold a major press conference on Tuesday, April 10, in Lima, Peru, to announce the challenger for the next title defense of Peruvian superstar and WBA Super Featherweight Champion, Kina "Dinamita" Malpartida (13-3, 3 KOs).

Lewkowicz and Malpartida recently signed an exclusive promotional agreement and Lewkowicz is wasting no time in putting together a history-making event for her debut, as for first time the WBA KO Drugs Campaign will be held in the country of Peru.

32-year-old Malpartida will be making the fifth defense of the title she won via TKO 10 over Maureen Shea in 2009. She has also defended against Halana Dos Santos  (TKO 7), Lyndsey Scragg  (UD 10), Liliana Palmera (UD 10) and was last seen defeating American Rhonda Luna via near-shutout 10-round decision last April.

"For our first even together, we are pulling out all the stops, including bringing the WBA's KO Drugs event to Peru," said promoter Lewkowicz. "Kina has an excellent opponent lined up and this will be a tough fight, but it will also be a very entertaining fight for this important show in Peru and for the entire country of Peru, whose national pride she carries on her shoulders."

Lewkowicz says he expects a very large crowd to attend in anticipation of learning Malpartida's next foe.

"Her every move is scrutinized over there, so there will be quite a bit of interest in her next opponent."
