Well-respected matchmaker Sampson Lewkowicz and Filipino promoter Sammy Gello-ani will promote the Indonesian talent Daud Cino Yordan (25-1, 19 KOs) in a warm up match in Manila, Phillipines, September 25, against local fighter, Christian Avilla, in a 10-round non title fight. “I would like to thank Mr. Lewkowicz and Mr. Gello-ani for their hard work in promoting Daud. He’s a true hidden talent,” said Pino Bahari, Yordan’s manager. Further, Bahari informed that Lewkowicz has prepared several warm up bouts in Asia, before staging the 23-year-old fighter Yordan in a very big event in the US next year. Daud showed his talent giving Robert “the Ghost” Guerrero trouble in 2009 when the fight ended as a no contest in California. But he didn’t do well when he had to fight jetlag and fatigue after he arrived two days before his fight against Celestino Caballero. Daud was defeated by unanimous decision in the 12-round non title bout in April of this year in Florida.
