  Cloutier's Canada Corner
Because Of His Wedding, Lafrenière Won’t
Get His Rematch With Onolunose July 20th

By Daniel Cloutier

MONTRÉAL — The Montrealer middleweight Francis Lafrenière was supposed to get a rematch with the Canadian Nigerian Albert Onolulose July 20th at Place Bell in Laval (Montréal northern suburb) just before the fight between the Montrealers cruiser-weights Jean Pascal and Steve Bossé, but he circonstances forced him to cancel this NABO North American 160 pounds championship. Trained by the brothers Howard and Otis Grant at the Monster Gym in Dorval (West Island of Montréal), Lafrenière cancelled his fight because he will get married July 21st.

Originally, the event was supposed to be presented June 29th, but the the GYM Group has been obliged to postponed it, because the Steve Bossé’s boxing license was expired. The promoter of the event, Yvon Michel, will try to re-organize this rematch Lafrenière-Onolunose in few months.

A fighter living in Calgary, Alberta, Onolunose (23-1-1) beat Lafrenière (16-6-2) by majority decision of the judges last March at the Montréal Casino.
