Cloutier’s Canada Corner
Pascal Will Fight Bossé June 29 At Bell Centre
By Daniel Cloutier
QUÉBEC CITY - Former WBC light heavyweight champion of the
world, the Montrealer Jean Pascal will face the former UFC
champion, the Montrealer Steve Bossé, in the main event of a
boxing show organized by the GYM Group June 29th at Place
Bell in Laval, a northern suburb of Montréal. Pascal
(32-5-1) will face Bossé (1-0-0) in a 10 rounds bout.
A fighter of 35 years old, Pascal announced his retirement
after his win by TKO in 6th round against the Egyptian Ahmed
Elbiali (16-1-0) last December in Miami. But he changed his
mind, when Bossé challenged him publicly.
Just before the fight Pascal-Bossé, Francis Lafrenière
(16-6-2), from Côteau-du-Lac (West island of Montréal), will
get a rematch against Albert Onolunose (23-1-1), a Nigerian
living in Calgary, Alberta, in a NABO North American
championship. Last March in Montréal, Lafrenière lost by
majority decision of the judges against Onolunose, and he
was wishing to get a rematch. It’s done.
