Rexa Group Cancels June 15 Boxing Show

By Daniel Cloutier

MONTRÉAL - Francis Lafrenière (16-6-2), a middleweight from Côteau-du-Lac, a city located in the West Island of Montréal, was supposed to get a rematch with Albert Onolunose (22-1-1), a Nigerian living in Calgary, Alberta, June 15th at the Tohu Bar in Montréal, but the Rexa Group, the organizer of the event, cancelled this boxing show.

The rematch Lafrenière-Onolunose will be presented June 29th at Place Bell in Laval, when the former WBC light heavyweight champion of the world, the Montrealer Jean Pascal (32-5-), will face the former UFC champion, Steve Bossé (1-0-0), from Saint-Jean-sur Richelieu, Québec, in the main event of a boxing show presented by the GYM Group. Onolunose beat Lafrenière by unanimous decision last March at the Montréal Casino.

Apparently, the Rexa Group cancelled the show because most of the boxing writers working in Montréal will be in Shawinigan that day, because the following night, the heavyweight Simon Kean (14-0-0), from Trois-Rivières, will fight the former football player, Adam Braithwood (12-1-0), from Delta, British Columbia, in the main event of a boxing organized by The Eye Of The Tiger Management Group, at the Gervais Car Centre in Shawinigan.

Shawinigan is located at 15 miles of Trois-Rivières, the historic city located at midway between Montréal and Québec City.
