Press Release / May 15, 2012 - 9:53am

Argentinean welterweight contender Hector "El Tigre" Saldivia (41-2, 32 KO) has signed a managerial agreement with middleweight champion Sergio Martinez's Maravilla Box and re-signed another long-term promotional agreement with promoter Sampson Lewkowicz of Sampson Boxing.
The exciting 28-year-old Saldivia, from Comodoro Rivadavia, Chubut, Argentina, is a former WBA Fedelatin Welterweight Champion, currently rated #4 in the IBF and #15 in the WBC.
Saldivia is currently riding an eight-fight winning streak. As part of the Maravilla Box stable, Saldivia will now be trained by the mastermind behind so many of his fighters' success, super trainer Pablo Sarmiento.
"Now that he is with the best manager and trainer in boxing, it will be Hector's time to become champion," said the proud Lewkowicz. "We will be petitioning the IBF to fight an eliminator for the right to face the winner of the Mike Jones and Randall Bailey fight for the vacant title in June."
