The 22 year old southpaw, Mirco Cuello, is perhaps one of the most accomplished amateur boxers to fight out of Santa Fe, Argentina. From winning a bronze medal at the 2018 Summer Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires, to representing his homeland in over 10 different countries and reserved himself a place at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
Cuello set strong foundations early in his professional career, under the guidance and training of his father, Darío Cuello, and Mariano Carrera, ex national team coach who also represented his country in the 2000 Sydney Olympics. From making his debut on US soil in 2020, Cuello has racked up a record of 11-0 with 10 wins way of knockout.
With a high knockout ratio, the Argentinian had caught the eye of Sampson Lewkowicz, and signed with Sampson Boxing in 2022. The same year after signing, Cuello captured the South American Featherweight title in spectacular fashion by knockout in the first round.
Lewkowicz declared “He has the right schooling in the amateurs to become a contender very quickly. The fans are going to love his punching power and the excitement it brings. I am excited to be joining this great team in guiding the career of the young phenom, Mirco Cuello”
On Saturday night Cuello brings his crowd-pleasing style to Uruguay, putting his title on the line for a second time against the Venezuelan Antonio Guzman (23-3 19 KOs) over 10 rounds, live on Probox TV and promoted by Sampson Boxing.
“The way I do shows is very powerful, not just the fights, but the people too. They will be screaming ” Lewkowicz added “You will see a full stadium on Saturday night”
