  Adonis Stevenson vs. Aaron Pryor Jr. Confirmed

By Daniel Cloutier

Yvon Michel has confirmed that Super Middleweight Adonis Stevenson will fight Aaron Pryor Jr. in a doubleheader December 10th at The Bell Center in Montreal. The co-feature bout of this doubleheader puts home grown David Lemieux against another Montrealer, former WBA super welterweight champion, Joachim Alcine (he lost his world title to the Puerto Rican Daniel Santos in 2008 in Montréal). Lemieux will fight for the first time since his first loss, against the Mexican Marco Antonio Rubio.

Jean Pascal was hoping to get a rematch with Chad Dawson on that show, but noting has been confirmed for him. It seems that Pascal is ready to fight against Dawson but only at the condition that the WBC light heavyweight world title is involved. Complicated, because José Sulaiman has confirmed in Mexico that Bernard Hopkins is still world champion after the controversial ending in Los Angeles.

Thursday night, before the fight Dierry Jean-Lorenzo, Yvon Michel told me that he is wondering if Sulaiman will sanction an interim world title fight between Pascal and Dawson, considering that Hopkins is injured.

If the WBC is sanctioning an interim world title, it has to be done fast because the December 10th show is in less than seven weeks.

My prediction is that Pascal will not fight before January or February. This should give enough time for the WBC championship committee to decide a future in the saga Hopkins-Dawson-Pascal.
