  Sebastien Demers On Allan Green

By Jeff Emond Jeffrey


On November 5th, 2011, Sebastien "Double Trouble" Demers ( 31-4-0, 11 KOís ) will face none other then super middleweight contender and super-six participant, Allan Green ( 30-3-0, 21 KOís ). From 2004 to 2010, Demers was one of the most promising stars on Canadian soil, scoring notables victories over Mamadou Thiam, Ian MacKillop, Walid Smichet and former 3 times WBA middleweight champion William Joppy. That was until two crushing defeats at the hands of Brian Vera and Renan St-Juste.

Allan Green as been a very hot prospect himself . Nicknamed ĎíGhost Dogíí, he also possesses significant victories over Rubin Williams, Tarvis Simms, Carlos DeLeon Jr and former WBA light middleweight champion Carl Daniels. Much like Demers, Green had two devastating defeats at the hands of WBA super middleweight champion Andre Ward and the road warrior Glen Johnson.

Like a true warrior, Demers is back and wants to establish himself as a worthy contender, just like Green. Both of them cannot afford to lose this fight.

Only two weeks before this bout on the undercard of Bute-Johnson, Sebastien Demers shared with us his thoughts about is comeback and Allan Green.

Jeff Emond Jeffrey:
Good afternoon Sebastien, How are you?

Sebastien Demers:
Very good and Iíll be ready for Green.

JEJ:
Very soon your gonna face Allan Green. Any comments?

SD:
Itís a huge opportunity for me to face an opponent like Allan Green and Iím very happy about it. Heís been a title contender himself and was in the Super-Six, so I will leave nothing to chance.

JEJ:
You were supposed to fight Andre Dirrell, another Super-Six contestant this summer. Are you disappointed of this turn of events?

SD:
No, both of them are big names, so Iím grateful to have a big fight like this at this stage of my career. Iíve got two defeats I want to erase from peopleís memories and such an important opportunity donít come easy. Itís my last time to shine and I will make it count, believe me. Iíll give it all to win this fight and after that some better occasions are gonna be possible for me.

JEJ:
Speaking of styles, one is a southpaw and the other orthodox, who would you rather face between Direll and Green?

SD:
I think itís better for me to battle Green. He might be a very fast right handed fighter, but heís not a southpaw who can switch stance and like Dirrell. I donít underestimate Green, because I know that heís gonna look to impress in such a big card. I know heís gonna come forward, so I wonít have to look for him inside the ring.

JEJ:
How will you fight Green?

SD:
I will put pressure early in the fight to break his rhythm and establish mine. I will have to be careful for his jab since heís taller than me and moves his head very well. So Iíll go to the body to break him. I have great confidence in my training team, Howard and Otis Grant for getting me ready for November 5th.

JEJ:
What have you been working for in the gym for this bout?

SD:
I have been working on my defensive skills, like my head and upper body movements and also Iím throwing much more punches in combination.

JEJ:
Who did you spar with?

SD: I have been sparring with Adonis Stevenson, Patrick "The Predator" Cotť from the mixed martial arts world and Francy Ntetu, a tall boxer with a nice jab, much like Green. Like I said before, itís a big opportunity for me and Iíll leave nothing to chance. Iíll be back stronger then ever!

JEJ:
A lot of boxing experts in the United States donít think you can beat Allan Green. Any comments?

SD:
Well I heard a little bit about that, but I wonít pay any attention to it. I will win in Quebec City, the crowd support will help me to fight harder than before. This is very important to me

JEJ:
Thank you very much for your time Sebastien and good luck.

SD:
No problem and itís gonna be a very exciting fight.
