Uruguayan-born, Las Vegas-based promoter Sampson Lewkowicz, President of Sampson Boxing LLC, proudly announced the signing of exciting junior middleweight KO artist Jorge “Demonio” Cota to a co-promotional agreement, along with Kochul Promotions this week. A free-swinging slugger with extremely heavy hands, Cota hails from Los Mochis, Mexico, and boasts an outstanding record of 22 wins (21 KOs) with only one defeat. The 26-year-old is trained by the Montiel Family at their world-class Kochul Gym with superstar stablemates that include three-time world champion Fernando “Kochulito” Montiel, two-time world champion Hugo “El Increíble” Cázares and five-time world champion Jorge “El Travieso” Arce.
Cota has already notched a stoppage victory over former world champion Luis Ramon Campas in eight rounds. His only career loss came against current WBC Middleweight Champion Marco Rubio in just his twelfth fight. “I am very excited to be given this opportunity. Sampson is the promoter who can bring me the international fights that showcase my talent and punching power. I will make him and my original promoters, Kochul, very proud with my training and performances,” said Cota.
Lewkowicz, the man credited with bringing boxing superstar “Maravilla” Martinez to the world as a then-unknown 154-lb fighter, says Cota has the style and ability and to become a star in boxing, “Jorge Cota is the kind of puncher who fears no one. He believes in his power and will stand and trade with anyone. He makes for terrific fights every time because he is only interested in landing his bombs, which he does from every angle. Even in his loss, he was able to shake Rubio several times and it was a terrific war. I am looking forward to a strong run at the world championships with Jorge and his wonderful team at Kochul Promotions and the Montiel family.”
