Tony Luis vs. Steve Claggett
Civic Complex in Cornwall – 6 August 2022
Cornwall boxer Tony Luis (29-5, 10 K.O.) and Alberta’s Steve Claggett (31-7-2, 21 K.O.) will finally fight the war that boxing fans have been asking for. The two Canadians will face off on August 6th at the Civic Complex in Cornwall in a boxing card presented by Liveco Boxing and simulcast on Punching Grace at 8:00 pm.
Few events are as exciting as a fight where two boxers are at a crossroads. Indeed, this confrontation can open doors for the winner while it can have the opposite effect for his rival.
Luis last fight was last March when he fought in the ring at the sumptuous Madison Square Garden. It was a return to action following a 19-month layoff. The covid having foiled plans for many. This bout with Claggett will be his 35th career fight, and he is determined to get back to winning.
“In my last fight against Bauza, I wanted to show what I can still do,” said Luis. “I think I, and the fans, deserved a much better result. But the way my style matches Claggett’s, I don’t see any losers here. And the biggest winners will be the fans,” added Luis.
For his part, Claggett, has been more active as in the last few months, he signed 2 wins by knockout. His confidence is therefore at its peak, and he has a strong desire to get back in the ring to go for a third consecutive win and thus continue his momentum.
“This is a great fight for Canadian boxing. It’s an explosive matchup, with two experienced warriors with blood and guts and two fighters who put it all on the line every time. August 6th is going to be a fireworks display,” said the Calgary native.
“Now we will see who has worked the hardest, who has put in the most effort and who will come out on top when the bell rings,” added Claggett. “This fight has been building for a long time and there will be no turning back. Let’s see who wants it more.”
“Claggett and I have had similar journeys – beating the odds, making our way as warriors and competing at the highest level without looking back,” Luis said. “We always knew this day would come, but we didn’t know when. Now we know.”
This highly anticipated boxing match will be broadcast live on Punching Grace and by Liveco PPV. The full card will be revealed shortly.
