Javier Fortuna Extends Pact With Sampson Boxing

Former WBA Featherweight and Super Featherweight Champion Javier "El Abejon" Fortuna (31-1-1, 22 KOs) has renewed his long-term promotional agreement with promoter Sampson Lewkowicz and Sampson Boxing.
 
From La Romana, Dominican Republic, the 27-year-old Fortuna has won two straight since dropping his super featherweight belt in a shocker against Jason Sosa in June 2016. He came back with an impressive two-round blowout of fellow Dominican Marlyn Cabrera in September 2016 and then, in November took the undefeated record of Delaware's Omar "Super O" Douglas by unanimous decision.
 
"Sampson Lewkowicz is and always will be my promoter," said Fortuna. "He has done right by me and my career at every turn. I will be world champion again with Sampson in my corner."

Lewkowicz, who says he's working on a big fight for Fortuna, says Fortuna has become like family.
 
"Javier is a son to me. I am honored to be his promoter and look forward to continuing to work for him. He is a great champion with many great fights left. After he won his first title, he told me we would work together for his entire career and he has kept his word. I will do everything to make him a champion again."
