Matthysse Jr. Makes Pro Debut on Oct 24 in Sao Paulo, Brazil

Argentina middleweight Walter “El Nino Terrible” Matthysse Jr. Is set to make his pro debut on Saturday, October 24, at the Coliseu Boxing Center in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

It is the evening in which Sampson Lewkowicz promotes boxing there with the support of the National Boxing Council of Brazil (CNB) and the Uruguayan Commission for Amateur and Professional Boxing (CUBAP).

Matthysse Jr., 21, joined the ranks of Sampson Boxing in 2020 after an outstanding amateur career. ??

Matthysse Jr. is nephew of former world champions Lucas and Soledad Matthysse, and son of Walter Matthysse Sr., an exciting former welterweight knockout artist.


Among other achievements, Matthysse Jr. claimed titles at the "Evita Championships", twice capturing regional gold medals.

He also won the WBC South American amateur belt as well as the WBC amateur world title.   

His record as amateur reached 59-3-1, 30 KO’s; and now Matthysse Jr. is turning pro.  Wish him the best of luck.
In the coming days, the opponent of Matthysse Jr  will be announced. 
Promoter Sampson Lewkowicz also announced that he added to the card a fight for the vacant WBO Latino welterweight championship between Juan Hernán Leal (10-1, 3 KO’s) and local Brazil warrior ???????? Fernando “El Cruel” Pinto (8-1-1, 7 KO’s).
Given the interest that the event has acquired with the WBO title match between Leal vs Pinto, Matthysse Jr's pro debut, and the inclusion of three promising undefeated Uruguayans fighters (José Acevedo, Víctor Rodríguez and Jairo Albiso), Sports Channel TyC Sports will broadcast the show for Argentina and much of the American Continent.
Regarding the Uruguayan boxers, Acevedo will face Brazilian Pedro Guilherme Dos Santos (3-2-2) in 6 rounds; Albiso will do it against the local Ykaro David Silva Santos (2-0-0, 1 KO) at a distance of 4 laps, and Rodríguez will trade blows against São Paulo's Kenes Carneiro Mesquita (3-3-0), also in 4 chapters.

The following are the dates for the upcoming Sampson Boxing cards that will air on TyC Sports and TyC Sports Play:
•  October 7: Evening from Uncasville, Connecticut, ???????? USA.

•  October 24: Show from São Paulo, Brazil.

•  November 14:   Card from Los Angeles, California, ???????? USA.

•  November 20 & 27:   Evenings of Boxing from São Paulo, ????????  Brazil.
