Tony Luis “Preparation is Everything”

Posted: 16th January 2014 by knockout in Articles

This Friday night from the Cook Convention Center in Memphis, Tennessee, Showtime’s “ShoBox: The New Generation” series returns to its roots, featuring two young fighters both at a career milestone. Cornwall, Ontario, Canada’s Tony “Lightning” Luis, 17-1 (7), faces undefeated Ivan “The Terrible’ Redkach, 15-0 (13), to see who takes the next big step from prospect to contender. For Redkach, the bout is his first step up against a quality opponent with a solid amateur background who is coming to win. For Luis, this is a chance to prove his lone loss, a TKO in eight rounds to Jose Hernandez, then 13-6-1, was a not so much an “exposure” as it was a hard lesson on the road to being a contender.
