CORNWALL, Ontario – Tony ‘Lightning’ Luis dominated Samuel Amoako in a one-sided eight round unanimous decision Friday night at the WinnaVegas Casino & Resort.
From the opening bell at the televised event, the 28-year-old Cornwall boxer (21-3, 7KOs) unleashed a furious attack on Amoako – a Ghana native with a record of 21-8, 15KOs, and never relinquished control of the contest.
The scores were 80-72 across the board.
Looking back at 2015:
Luis, the WBC Continental Americas Lightweight champion, dominated previously undefeated lightweight standout Karl ‘Dynamite’ Dargan on Jan. 30, in the main event of ESPN Friday Night Fights’ broadcast from the Foxwoods Resort in Mashantucket, Connecticut.
In April, Lightning came up short in his desire to become the WBA World Lightweight champion, after losing a unanimous decision to Derry Matthews in Liverpool, England.
He earned his second win in June against Edward Valdez by unanimous decision at the Seneca Niagara Casino and Hotel.
Luis was slated to fight in December 2015 at the Ernst & Young Centre. But the match was postponed to Jan. 29, and then called off on Jan. 6.
