  Eleider Alvarez: "I Believe In My Chances
To Win In Less Than Six Rounds"

One of the best prospects of Canadian boxing, Eleider Alvarez, will proceed to the first defense of his North American belt Friday night in the ring of the Bell Centre Theater.

In the main event of this boxing show of the Québec series "Rapides et Dangereux" (Fast and Dangerous), Alvarez (8-0-0), a Colombian fighter living in Montréal since the beginning of his pro career, will defend his NABO light heavyweight crown against Shawn "The Sioux Warrior" Hawk (23-1-1), from Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

"I got the chance to see Hawk in action in watching a video soI know what to expect from this guy," said Alvarez. "He loves to attack, and it is perfect for me. And the fact that he is making a lot of technical mistakes, will help me to hurt him often with my power shots. And I think he is disliking to be touched by body punches. Good thing! I really believe in my chances to stopp him in less than six rounds." The fight is scheduled for 12 rounds.

In an important preliminary bout, David Lemieux (25-2-0) will fight the Mexican Jaudiel Zepeda (12-5-0. "I lost my last two fights (against the Mexican Marco Antonio Rubio and the Montrealer Joachim Alcine), by lack of experience, but believe me, I am learning a lot in the last few months," said Lemieux. "I am sure that my desire to improve my style will bring good results from now on."
