Yvon Michel: "Bossé Or Not, We Will
Present A Boxing Show July 20th"

By Daniel Cloutier

MONTRÉAL - Former UFC champion, the Montrealer boxer Steve Bossé is supposed to fight the former WBC light heavyweight champion of the world, the Montrealer Jean Pascal, July 20th at Place Bell in Laval, a Montréal northern suburb. However, Bossé has a problem. So far, his boxing licence has been not renewed by the Québec Athletic Commission (Régie des sports de combat).

Rumours are circulating in Montréal about the fact that his new boxing licence could be rejected. Apparently, the Québec Athletic Commission is investigating about the Bossé’s entourage, which could has links with members of a criminal organization in Montréal.

“Bossé or not, we will present a boxing show July 20th at Place Bell,” said Yvon Michel, the GYM Group promoter.” However, I am extremely confident that Bossé will get a new boxing licence in the days to come. I don’t think there a problem with him.”

Sunday, Bossé (1-0-0) and Pascal (32-5-1) were face to face at the Pointe-Calumet Beach Club in the West part of Montréal. It was a promotion event.

They pushed each other when the photographers asked them to be nose to nose for pictures.

It’s clear they hate each others. If a fight Pascal-Bossé happens July 20th, the action should be great.

Pascal announced his retirement last December, after his win by TKO against the Egyptian Ahmed Elbiali in Miami, but few weeks after, Bossé, who is determinate to be active in pro boxing, challenged publicly Pascal.

Two days after, Pascal called Yvon Michel to tell him that he was ready to come back in the ring to face Bossé.
