  Yvon Michel: "If The Rematch Dawson-Hopkins Fails, A Rematch Dawson-Pascal Will Happen"

By Daniel Cloutier

Montréal - The boss of the GYM Group, Yvon Michel, is waiting a confirmation in the Dawson-Hopkins rematch’s file. “If the negotiations failed in the file of the rematch between Chad Dawson and Bernard Hopkins, Dawson will get a rematch with Jean Pascal next June,” mentioned Yvon Michel today. “Gary Shaw, who is the Dawson’s manager, told me that Chad wants absolutely to get a rematch with Pascal, and it will become a priority for us if the project of rematch Dawson-Hopkins fails. We should know very soon.”

Major Fight For Adonis Stevenson

The Montrealer southpaw Adonis Stevenson, who got the most important win of his career December 10th at Bell Centre (he stopped Aaron Pryor Jr.), will be involved in the main event of the next boxing show of the serie “Rapides et Dangereux”, February 18th at Bell Centre Theater.
“Adonis will fight one of the top super middleweight in the world February 18th. We will confirm it this week. I am more and more positive that Adonis will be involved in a world championship fight this year.”

Stevenson is training at the Kronk GYM in Detroit. His training is supervised by Emmanuel Steward.
The Colombian light heavyweight Eleider Alvarez (7-0-0), the young middleweight David Lemieux (25-2-0) and the junior welterweight Dierry Jean (20-0-0) will be involved in the three most important preliminary’s bouts February 18th.

“In spite of his loss against Joachim Alcine in December, Lemieux wanted to be in action as soon as possible,” said Yvon Michel. “We are planning to give him action every month this year. If he is showing us a good progression (in energy), as we are expecting , we will give him a rematch with Alcine before the end of the year.”

Bizier In March

Welterweight Kevin Bizier (17-0-0), of Québec City, who is now ranked 13th in the world by the WBA, should fight at the end of March in Québec City.
“We were planning to involve Kevin in the main event of our show of February 25th in Québec City, but he has injured his left hand in December, when he beat Lanardo Tyler (unanimous decision) in a NABA North American championship. Kevin is really important for us, when we organize a show in Québec City. We have decided to postpone this show at the end of March. We will confirm a date and an opponent very soon. Kevin will certainly be ranked in the Top 10 in the world in 2012.”
