MONTRÉAL - The promoter of the GYM Group, Yvon Michel, and
the Showtime network, will confirm in the next days that the
WBC light heavyweight championship of the world opposing the
Montrealer southpaw Adonis Stevenson and the Swedish African
Badou Jack, will be presented May 19th at the Videotron
Centre in Québec City. Stevenson (29-1-0) holds the WBC 175
pounds world title since 2013.
Recently, the WBC championship committee confirmed its
decision to sanction a fight Stevenson-Jack, but the winner
will be obliged to fight next the Montrealer Eleider Alvarez
(23-0-0), who is the mandatory challenger for the WBC light
heavyweight championship of the world since a year and a
Originally, Stevenson was supposed to face Alvarez, but this
fight is postponed to next summer… if Stevenson keeps his
title against Badou Jack.
Apparently, Alvarez will be involved in this boxing show,
but at this point, we don’t know who will be his next
opponent. The GYM Group and Showtime should confirm this
event in the next days or next week.
