Cloutier’s Canada Corner
Volny & Jean Victorious In Cornwall
By Daniel Cloutier
MONTRÉAL — The Montrealer middleweight Patrice Volny
dethroned Albert Onolunose as NABO 160 pounds North American
champion Saturday evening at the Civic Complexe in Cornwall,
Ontario, in beating him by unanimous decision in 10 rounds.
A fighter of 28 years, Volny, who has a perfect record in
pro boxing (12-0-0), should see his name appears in the Top
15 or the Top 10 of the WBO ratings in the weeks to come.
A Nigerian of 37 years old living in Calgary, Alberta,
Onolunose (23-2-1) won this NABO title last March at the
Montréal Casino, in beating Francis Lafrenière, from the
West Island of Montréal, by majority decision of the judges.
Just before the fight Volny-Onolunose, the Montrealer
lightweight Dierry Jean improved his pro record to (30-2-1),
with a victory by TKO in the sixth round over the Mexican
Abraham Gomez (28-17-1).
For Jean, it was a first presence in the ring in two
years. Why? Jean spent 15 months in jail for a severe
aggression against a lady in Montréal.
