In spite of the upsets and challenges posed by the Covid-19
pandemic, Eye of the Tiger Management wishes to highlight
the accomplishments of its team at the end of a year fraught

world classifications, but also in order to respect its
commitment to boxing fans in featuring quality bouts.

both Pavel Sour and Erkan Teper, holding on to his NABF

three separate occasions in 2021, reaching The Ring’s 8th

division, where he easily dominated every round of his
battle against the tough and tenacious Ronald Ellis and held

Erik Bazinyan (26-0-0, 20 KOs) carved out his spot in the
elite super-middleweight division by quickly dispatching

the WBA, 8th in the WBO and 16th in the WBC. Marc Ramsay’s
protégé is now on the cusp of world championship fights.

who offered a flawless performance against David Théroux,
retaining his NABF light-welterweight title. He is now 14th
in the world division of the WBC and is quickly moving
toward major fights in this division.
“I am very happy with the distance we have covered over the
past ten years and of this positive review. We have made
history by crowning not only the first Quebecois heavyweight
world champion, Bermane Stiverne, but also
super-middleweight David Lemieux, and we have established a
solid reputation on the world scene. As an organization we
have worked hard and learned a lot. The future is bright for

boxing to a higher level,” states EOTTM president, Camille
