|Monday, 05 December 2011 20:44|
The main event will showcase 22 year-old, power-punching David Lemieux (25-1, 24 KO), the WBC No. 3-rated contender, who puts his WBC International middleweight title belt on the line against former WBA World super welterweight title-holder Joachim “Ti-Joa” Alcine (32-2-1, 19 KOs). Both fighters will be fighting to “reboot” their respective careers, failing to garner wins in their most recent bout.
Montreal has a rich history of hosting tremendous fights and developing great pro boxers. There is little doubt the electric atmosphere will add to the excitement Saturday evening when local favorites Lemieux and Alcine step into the ring in front of a loud hometown crowd.
In the co-feature, fans will also have an opportunity to watch super middleweight sensation Adonis “Superman” Stevenson (15-1, 12 KOs), ranked No. 7 by the WBA, defend his North American Boxing Association championship, as well as fight for the vacant North American Boxing Organization title, against recent IBO super middleweight title contender Aaron Pryor, Jr. (16-4, 11 KO). The challenger brings a strong fight pedigree as his father is International Boxing Hall of Fame inductee and two-time world light welterweight champion, Aaron “Hawk” Pryor.
A replay of this event will also air Monday, Dec. 12 at 10 PM/ET as part of FIGHT NOW TV’s “Every Night a Different FIGHT” programming slot.
