Biography

Luis Santana (born November 19, 1958 in La Romana, Dominican Republic), was a professional boxer in the super welterweight (154lb) division.

Career

Santana turned pro in 1981 and challenged Simon Brown for the IBF Welterweight Title in 1989, but lost a unanimous decision.

In 1994 he got another title shot against WBC Light Middleweight Title holder Terry Norris and won the title when Norris was disqualified in the 5th round for downing Santana with an illegal blow to the back of the head or rabbit punch. After a lengthy delay, the ringside doctor ruled Santana unable to continue. In 1995 they fought a rematch, and again Norris was disqualified for hitting Santana after the bell to end Round 3 had sounded. Later that year they again rematched, and Norris dominated the fight, winning by 2nd round TKO. Santana fought three more times and retired in 1999.
