Weigh-In Day In Montreal…& Much
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
THE WEIGH IN
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.
ALCINE WAS LYING
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.”
SUPERMAN TALKS SHOP
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
“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
PASCAL: “TAVORIS CLOUD IS OUT”
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
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
