Julius 'The Chef' Jackson Cooks Jonathan Nelson in Nine Rounds

Saturday night (December 20) in Shelton, Washington, undefeated super middleweight Julius "The Chef" Jackson (19-0, 15 KOs) made his national television debut a memorable one by roasting Little Rock's Jonathan Nelson in nine rounds.

Despite his WBA #9 and IBF #5 ratings, 27-year-old Julius was previously regarded as the brother of better-known junior middleweight contender John Jackson and son of all-time middleweight great Julian Jackson. With the impressive Showtime-televised beating of Nelson, however, Jackson has announced his own arrival on the world scene.

The fight was almost over as soon as it began. A long, powerful Jackson right hand had Nelson (20-1, 10 KOs) on the floor within the first thirty seconds. To his credit, Nelson recovered, but sustained a prolonged beating for most of the fight. Another hard right had Nelson back on the deck in the eighth round and referee Jack Reiss had seen enough and waved it off at the 28-second mark of the ninth.

"Julius was very impressive," said Jackson's co-promoter, Sampson Lewkowicz (along with 340 Boxing). "His opponent was a good fighter, but Julius was too strong for him. He couldn't take his punches."

If Jackson, of St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands, was nervous about debuting on Showtime while simultaneously having his first fight on the US mainland, it didn't show. Perhaps the time he's spent recently, working with a couple world champions, had something to do with it.

"I learned so much working with Sergio 'Maravilla' Martinez and Gennady Golovkin as a sparring partner that I want to thank them and their camps," said Jackson. "With teachers like them, there is no doubt I will become a super middleweight world champion."


After a very successful run as a matchmaker and adviser, Sampson Lewkowicz switched over to the promotional side of professional boxing in January 2008.

Sampson Boxing has grown into one of the world's most prestigious promotional firms, representing many of the world's best fighters and most promising young contenders.

Sampson Boxing has promotional partners all over North and South America, Africa, Asia, New Zealand, Australia, Europe and Central America and Sampson Boxing events have been televised on such premiere networks as HBO, Showtime, ESPN, VS. and several international networks.
