Patrice L'Heureux Passes Away

By Daniel Cloutier

MONTRÉAL - The former Canadian heavyweight champion, Patrice L’Heureux, died from a heart attack Monday morning in Shawinigan, a city located between Montréal and Québec City. He was 46 years old.

A fighter of 250 pounds, L’Heureux (24-5-1) took his retirement in November 2010 after a lost by TKO in less than five rounds against the Montrealer Wayne John (4-3-0).

L’Heureux was married since a year. His wife found him dead in the family bed Monday morning.

He was present Saturday evening at the Videotron Centre in Québec City, to assist to this heavyweight bout between Simon Kean (15-1-0), from Trois-Rivières ( a city located at 15 miles of Shawinigan), and Dillon Carman (14-3-0), from Toronto. Carman caused a surprise. He became the first fighter to beat Kean. He beat him by KO in the fourth round.
