  Weigh-In Day In Montreal…& Much More

By Daniel Cloutier

It was the weigh in today at the restaurant 9-4-10 in The Bell Center. David Lemieux and Joachim Alcine hit the scales but did not make new comments although there were some comments about Alcine made, then I sat few minutes with Adonis Stevenson.


David Lemieux, Joachim Alcine, Adonis Stevenson and Aaron Pryor Jr. all had perfect weights at the weigh in and had no troubles at all at the scale.
It was 159.2 for Lemieux, 156.4 for Alcine for their middleweight fight and in Super Middle weights it was 166.4 for Stevenson and 165.6 for Pryor.


The members of the “Régie des sports de combat du Québec” (the Québec Athletic Commission) said, today, that Joachim Alcine was lying this week in saying he got a retinal detachment the day before his lost by KO against the Puertorican Daniel Santos in July 2009 at the Uniprix Stadium, a loss which cost him the WBA super welterweight championship of the world.

"Alcine passed the medical tests perfectly the day before the fight,” said a member of the Régie. “His eyes got a perfect score of 20 on 20. We have the results in our files. Alcine is lying is saying that he was forced to fight with a serious eyes injury.”


The Montreal boxer Adonis Stevenson, a southpaw who is considered one of the most dangerous puncher “pound for pound” in the world, is very anxious to go in the ring.
Just before the WBC International middleweight championship opposing David Lemieux to Joachim Alcine, two locals fighters, Stevenson will fight the American Aaron Pryor Jr. in a NABA, NABO and IBF international super middleweight championship.

“In few hours, I will be involved in the most important fight on my life, said Stevenson,” a Haitian native. “Pryor is the most dangerous opponent I got so far in my career, and this fight in involving belts who can push me in the “Top five” of the WBA, WBO and IBF ratings. I will give everything I got to win. I know that it is not a easy challenge. Pryor is very tall, he has very long arms, and at his last bout, he won against one of the most respected super middleweight in the world, Librado Andrade. I don’t know how many punches I can give per round against this giant, but I will need to hurt him each time I will touch him. If I can put pressure on him, my chances to win will be high.”


Former WBC light heavyweight champion of the world, Jean Pascal was present at this weight in and as always was not at a lack for words. “I was expecting to come back in the ring in February, but it is possible that it will be in March or April, said Pascal. I would love to give a rematch to Chad Dawson, but he has not the WBC belt at this point. The WBA title can be an option for me, but not the IBF belt. A fight between me and Tavoris Cloud is out of question. Cloud is controlled by Don King, and King mentioned to Yvon Michel that GYM has to give him options on my next three fights... or no fight with Cloud. So Cloud is not anymore in my plans.”

Pascal was smiling when a journalist asked him to comment what Carl Froch said last week in New York. Froch said that Pascal is 10 times more dangerous than Lucian Bute. “I know that Carl has a great respect for me, and he has no respect for Bute,” said Pascal. “Froch agreed with me on the fact that excepting Librado Andrade, Lucian Bute is never involved in risky fights. Froch and I are ready to challenge the best in the world. And I can understand that Froch is frustrated that Fightnews is ranking Bute the best super middleweight in the world. The best super middleweight in the world will be the winner of the “Super Six”. Bute will have to beat Froch or Andre Ward to prove is the best of his division.”
