By Daniel Cloutier

QUÉBEC CITY, Canada —— The Montrealer southpaw Marie-Eve Dicaire realized her third successful defense of her IBF super welterweight (154 pounds) female world championship Saturday evening at the Videotron Centre in Québec City, in the main event of this pro boxing show presented by the GYM Group, beating the Venezuelan Ogleidis Suarez by unanimous decision in 10 rounds. The judges scored the fight 100-90, 100-90 and 99-91 in favor of the Montrealer, showing clearly her superiority. And Dicaire kept her perfect record (17-0-0). Suarez (29-4-1) was WBA featherweight (126 pounds) champion of the world in 2011, 2012 and 2013.

Dicaire was the aggressor in every round, and she dominated clearly the action. Dicaire was connecting more power shots than his rival in every round.

“I the weigh in Friday, I predicted that I will keep my word title, and I was right,” said Dicaire after the bout. “I knew I got the speed, the mobility and the power shots to win this bout. I was the aggressor from the beginning to the end and look the result. I would love to dispute an unification world titles bout. I know I have the talent and the maturity to fight the best super welterweights in the world.”

The Dicaire’s trainer, Stéphane Arnois, said: “Marie-Eve did exactly what she needed to win this fight. She was intense, aggressive and almost of all her punches were accurate. She was deserving so much to leave the ring with her IBF belt on her shoulder.”
