Sampson Lewkowicz of Sampson Boxing is proud to announce the signing of Halifax, Nova Scotia's Tyson "Prince of Hali" Cave (24-2, 8 KOs) to a promotional agreement.
A former five-time Canadian champion as an amateur (record 160-16), 32-year-old Cave has already won the WBC Continental Americas Super Bantamweight, the CAM (Canadian American Mexican) Super Bantamweight and the Canadian Super Bantamweight Championships as a professional. He is currently rated #5 in the world by the WBA.
"It's a great honor to be joining Sampson's promotional stable. He works with guys like (former middleweight world champion) Sergio Martinez, and now I'm working with him," said Cave. "I've been working very hard and patiently waiting for the chance to reach my potential. I'm very grateful to Sampson Lewkowicz for investing in me. I won't disappoint him."
A flashy, colorful and confident southpaw with excellent speed and movement, Cave says his greatest strength as a fighter is his unpredictability. "The great thing about me is I don't think I ever know what I'll do in the ring. I like the cameras and the limelight. I'm flashy. I jump. I come up with unique ways to hit a person and I'm very hard to hit back."
Cave's trainer, Bunny Phillips from Titans Boxing Academy in Halifax, says the deal with Sampson Boxing will solve the one problem they have had with Cave's professional career, thus far.
"The problem with Tyson has always been finding him fights. He makes guys look bad. We've been trying to get him fights all over the world and nobody will fight him, so this deal will allow us to let a world-class promoter like Sampson line the fights up for us."
