NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. – Tony “Lightning” Luis defeated Edward Valdez Friday night at the Seneca Niagara Casino and Hotel.

Luis went eight rounds and won by unanimous decision during the fight on CBS Sports Network.

This is the second win for Luis, 27, in 2015 after beating Karl Dargan during the Friday Night Fights in January.

The victories bookend a loss in England where he fell to Derry Mathews in a match for the WBA interim lightweight title.
