  Cloutier’s Canada Corner
Kean Determined To Take Revenge;
Carman Believes He Will End Kean’s Boxing Career

By Daniel Cloutier

SHAWINIGAN - The Canadian heavyweight Simon Kean is clearly determined to take his revenge on Dillon Carman. This rematch will be presented Saturday evening at the Gervais Auto Centre Arena in Shawinigan.

In October 2018 at the Videotron Centre in Québec, Carman (14-4-0), a boxer from Toronto, became the first fighter to beat Kean (16-1-0) in pro boxing. He won this bout by KO in the fourth round. In this fight, Carman hurt his opponent several times.

“Yes, I am determinate to take my revenge and I gonna achieve it,” said Kean Friday afternoon at the weigh in held at the Mauricie Plaza in Shawinigan. “No doubt, I am perfectly prepared for this rematch. I am sure I will impress my fans this time. I know exactly what to do to be in the winning circle this time. Watch me when the fight will start. I used the wrong strategy in our first fight, but this time, it will be the gone one. I am extremely impatient to be in the ring. I know I will live a great evening this time.”

Obviously, Carman is not agree with his opponent. “I beat him by KO the first time and I will put an end to his boxing career this time,” said Carman. “I know he has not the chin to take my power shots. The result of our first fight proved it clearly. I will connect my power shots at the right moments again and you will see what will happen. No doubt in my mind that I will be again on the winning side. Kean is dreaming if he thinks seriously he can win this rematch. He is mixing fiction and reality. If he thinks I won our first match up by luck or accident, he is not realistic at all.”

At this weigh in supervised by the Québec Athletic Commission (Régie provinciale des sports de combat), Carman posted an official weight of 229.4 pounds, versus 234 for Kean, a fighter from Trois-Rivières, Québec. The distance between Trois-Rivières and Shawinigan is only 15 miles

“No doubt, this rematch Kean-Carman will provide great action,” said the promoter of The Eye Of The Tiger Management Group, the Montrealer businessman Camille Estephan. “Both are enthusiast to dispute this rematch, and both are determinate to win it. I am so impatient to assist to this event.”
