Kean & Santos Both Believe
They Have The Skills To Win

By Daniel Cloutier

MONTRÉAL - The Canadian heavyweight Simon Kean who hopes to be ranked in the Top 10 or the Top 15 of the international boxing ratings before the end of the year, will try to make another step in that direction Saturday evening in Shawinigan, a city of the Mauricie region located at 15 miles of Trois-Rivières, Québec, where Kean is living.

In the main event of a pro boxing show organized by the promoter Camille Estephan, the big boss of The Eye of The Tiger Management Group ion Montréal, Kean (12-0-0) will face Alexis Santos (18-2-0), from Lawrence, Massachusetts. It will be an IBO InterContinental championship.

“It is an important bout for me, because I got to stay undefeated to increase my chances to be ranked in the world this year or next year,” said Kean. “Like usual, I will fight with concentration and intensity, to dominate and win this significant fight.”

Kean saw Santos in action on videos. “Santos likes offensive bouts, he likes to exchange punch for pound, but I am not worried at all,” said Kean, “I know I am better technically than him, and I a more dangerous puncher than him. I am positive I will get out of the ring in the winning shoes.”

Obviously, Santos does not agree with the Kean’s theory. “I am sure I have more natural skills than Kean, and this advantage will certainly make the difference in the result of the fight,” said Santos. “Kean is a dangerous puncher, specially with his left hook, but I know exactly what to achieve to block his power shots. And I am positive he will be more nervous than me when the fight will start. He is fighting in front of his fans and he will feel obliged to impress them. Me, i will stay concentrate on the moves to do to dominate and win the bout.”
