New York (December 13, 2021)–Split-T Management is proud to announce the signing of undefeated, power-punching lightweight prospect Luis Acosta.
Acosta, 25 years-old of Houston, Texas has a professional record of 12-0 with 11 knockouts.
“Signing with Split-T Management is an amazing feeling. I have been trying to get noticed for a long time, but nobody was paying attention to me. Fortunately I was able to link up with Brendan (Segalas) who took a look at me and brought me the attention of Mr. (David) McWater. We were able to meet with him at my family’s restaurant, Titas Tacos, and knew immediately that Split-T was the place for us,” Said Acosta
Acosta began boxing at the age of 16, following in the footsteps of his father, Jose, and uncle, Mario, who were both professional boxers. His father, who now trains Luis, was 2-2 as a professional, while his uncle was 1-0.
“When I was a young kid, I did not like going to the gym. Then I started watching some boxing videos, and nine months later, we were building a gym in our backyard!”
This passion led to an amateur career that saw Luis go 57-8 and winning both the Title and Ringside Tournaments.
Acosta is a come-forward fighter, who is aggressive without getting hit, and possesses tremendous physical strength.
“In 2022, all of the opportunities will come to me. I am fighting for my family and I want to impress anyone who watches me.”
In addition, Acosta is a graduate of the University of Houston with a degree in Exercise Science and Kinesiology and has an entrepreneurial spirit honed by working many hours in his family’s restaurant, which is a local landmark in Humble, Texas.
“I would like to open up a gym – not just a boxing gym – but for everyone to get into shape,” said Acosta. “Also open up another restaurant.”
