EOTTM Is Back In The Outaouais Region Oct. 27
Boxers Alexandre Gaumont (4-0, 2 KOs) and Harley-David
O’Reilly (in his pro debut) will have the opportunity to
shine on home turf when Eye of the Tiger makes a triumphant
comeback to Gatineau on Thursday, October 27 at the
spectacular Théâtre du Casino Lac-Leamy. Erik Bazinyan
(28-0, 21 KOs), Yves Ulysse Jr. (21-2, 12 KOs) and Steve
Claggett (32-7-2, 22 KOs) will also spring into action in
this action-packed evening that is sure to dazzle Outaouais
After presenting five galas in the Outaouais region, EOTTM
now enjoys great connections in the area and hopes to
contribute to the city’s influence by offering major events
on a yearly basis. They are thrilled to present their latest
event, in conjunction with Loto-Québec, at the Casino Lac-Leamy,
which, over the years, has become a longstanding partner.
“Our events have enjoyed resounding success outside of urban
centres, and the support we’ve had from people here, city
administrators and local businesses indicate that the time
is right to hold galas all over Québec,” says EOTTM
president Antonin Décarie. “Because Loto-Québec has been
instrumental in promoting boxing in Québec and has
contributed to the development of our boxers over the years,
we absolutely insisted on developing this project with
them,” he adds.
“Loto-Québec is a longstanding partner of Eye of the Tiger,
and we are thrilled to announce the October 27 gala at the
Théâtre du Casino du Lac-Leamy. We’re sure it will delight
Outaouais boxing fans, and we hope this will be the first of
many events at our venue,” indicates Patrick Lamy, general
manager of the Casino Lac-Leamy.
Proudly representing their hometowns of Buckingham and
Gatineau, Alexandre Gaumont and Harley-David O’Reilly are
elated at the idea of fighting on home turf, and they hope
that local boxing fans will show up in droves to cheer them
on. “I’m very proud to contribute to the return of boxing in
my region. When I was younger, I’d attend every single local
pro boxing event. Now it’s my turn and I’ll do everything I
can to bring the crowd to its feet. I’m more motivated than
ever, and on October 27, I’ll give it my all in the ring to
give you all an unforgettable performance,” claims Gaumont.
O’Reilly, for his part, says, “I’ve always dreamed of being
a pro boxer and I’ve paid my dues at the amateur level, so
when I heard that there was an event planned in Gatineau, I
knew that it was now or never and I had to seize the day!
Reaching this milestone before a hometown crowd is really
special for me. This will be an experience that I’ll cherish
all my life,” adds O’Reilly.
The evening’s event will consist of 7 fights presented by
EOTTM on October 27, and Avery Martin-Duval (7-0-1, 4 KOs)
as well as Leïla Beaudoin (6-0, 1 KOs) will also be taking
part in the heart-pounding action.
