Fighter Bio

Adversity seems to be more of a presence in boxing than most sports, and if overcoming it has anything to do with seasoning a fighter, Tony Luis has the attributes of a grizzled ring veteran.

Following his second pro bout in 2008, Luis’ mother passed away. A loss of that magnitude would be too strong of a blow for most to continue with their immediate plans, but the Canadian sensation knew there was only one way to pay homage to his late mother; by fighting on in her honor.

On October 4, 2008, one week after his mother’s funeral, Luis dominated 14 fight veteran Mario Andrade, decking him twice en route to scoring a unanimous decision. His professional career, under the alias “Lightning”, has brought plenty of additional success his way. Luis debuted in 2008 and established himself as a star on the rise with blazing hand speed and a vicious left hook to the body. In his first year as a professional Luis was able to put together a flawless 5-0 record without losing a single round. Luis then began showcasing his power, picking up knockout wins over Jorge Banos, Cesar Figueroa and most notably, Adrian Valdez on ESPN’s Friday Night Fights.

The good looking, sharp spoken, bi-lingual Luis has all the makings of a star both in and out of the squared circle. Luis compiled a 78-26 record over 104 amateur fights, including wins over 10 Canadian national champions, one of which was amateur legend Miakel Zewski. Luis also picked up seven provincial championships, an Eastern New York Golden Gloves titles, three National silver medals and two bronze before he embarked on his professional journey. With a degree in Police Foundations, Luis is a model citizen and a hero to many young children. Working as a counselor on an Indian reserve near his Cornwall, Ontario residence, Luis offers a role model figure to youths struggling with legal trouble, as well as drug and alcohol abuse.

At age 24, Luis stands at 14-0 and is one of Canada’s top rated prospects. In October 2011 he picked up his most crucial and emphatic win to date, knocking out Alejandro Barrera to capture the WBC Continental Americas Junior Welterweight title. In May 2012, Luis signed with proficient US promoter Greg Cohen and will make his US debut in the coming months. In addition to being promoted by Cohen, Luis is trained by his father Jorge and advised by Matt Yanofsky.
