Dierry Jean Involved In Personal Fight

By Daniel Cloutier

MONTRÉAL - NABF North American lightweight champion, ranked eight contender by the WBC in the 135 pounds division, the Montrealer Dierry Jean is now involved in a very bad fight. Jean (27-1-0) will stay in a rehabilitation home (Jean Lapointe's home) for several weeks to cure his problems for alcohol and gambling.

When the psychiatrists who will take care of him judge he has resolved his bad problems, Jean will return in the gym to work on a daily basis with his trainer, Mike Moffa. Jean was very close to a participation to a lightweight world championship bout or an elimination bout for a world title, but the plans are changed now.

“The crucial thing for us, it's to be sure that Dierry will be in a perfect mental health in few months, said the promoter of The Eye Of The Tiger Management group, Camille Estephan, who is also the Jean's manager. Dierry is one the best fighter in the world, then, we got to be sure he will in a perfect mental and physical health the next time he will go in the ring. We will take care of his problems, his mental health is our priority now, and after that, boxing will be back the priority for him and us.”

At his last bout, September 27th at Bell Centre in Montréal, Jean made a successful defense of his NABF title, in beating the Mexican Daniel Ruiz (32-8-2) by KO in the fifth round.
