Rivas & Dicaire Will Have World
Championship Bouts In Montréal In June

By Daniel Cloutier

MONTRÉAL - The promoter Yvon Michel, the president of the GYM Group in Montréal, confirmed that the Montrealers Oscar Rivas, a Columbian, and Marie-Eve Dicaire, will have world championship bouts in June in Montréal.

Rivas (27-1-0) will fight the American Bryant Jennings (24-4-0) in a WBC bridgerweight (224 pounds) world title fight, and Dicaire will face the Swedish Patricia Berghuit (14-0-0) in a WBC female super welterweight (154 pounds) world championship fight.

Yvon Michel said he will confirm soon the date and the site of this event.

At her last bout, March 5th in Flint, Michigan, Dicaire lost by unanimous decision against the American Claressa Shields (11-0-0) in a WBC and WBO super welterweight world championship bout. However, Shields, apparently, has decided to give up her WBC world title, and keep the WBO title.

“We have been informed that Shields will give up her WBC title very soon, then, we have decided to organize a WBC female world championship bout involving Marie-Eve Dicaire,” said Yvon Michel. “Marie-Eve is very happy to get a second opportunity to fight for a world title bout.”

On his side, the promoter of The Eye Of The Tiger Management Group in Montréal, Camille Estephan, confirmed that the Montrealers Russians Artem Oganesyan (12-0-0), a super welterweight (154 pounds) and Ivan Kozlovsky (2-0-0), a super lightweight (140 pounds) will fight March 21st in Moscow, Russia. Kozlovsky will be opposed to Adam Kipenga (11-1-0), from Tanzania, and the Oganesyan’s opponent will be confirmed soon.
