  Sadriddin Akhmedov Forced To Withdraw From July 16 Card In Shawinigan Due To Back Injury

As a preventive measure, Eye of the Tiger Management is modifying the boxing card presented at the Centre Gervais Auto in Shawinigan on July 16. A back injury sustained during his training camp has forced boxer Sadriddin Akhmedov (12-0-0, 10 K.-O.) to withdraw from the gym for a period of 6 weeks and to withdraw from the July 16th card against Mponda Kalunga (8-2-0, 3 K.-O.)

"We are extremely disappointed to have to withdraw this promising fight where both boxers had a good training camp for this championship bout. This is out of our control and we hope he recovers quickly so he can get back in the ring soon and show us again the extent of his talent and continue his rise to the top of his division," explained Eye of the Tiger Management President Camille Estephan.

The main event will be the 10 round bout between Yves Ulysse jr. (19-2-0, 10 K.-O.) and David Théroux (16-4-0, 11 K.-O.) for the NABF Super-Lightweight title. The second main event will be just as exciting as it will oppose the Tiger, Clovis Drolet (12-1-0, 8 K.O.), against the Gatineau native, Danyk Croteau (5-3-0, 3 K.O.) in a duel scheduled for 8 bouts. A former military man, Croteau is known as a powerful fighter with a long reach and an aggressive boxing style that can trouble Drolet, who is coming off a convincing win over Jordan Mccue. Raphael Courchesne (8-1-0, 3 KO's) will be looking to get back on the winning track as he faces a tough test against the man who gave Sebastien Roy a memorable war, Larone Whyte (6-4-0, 5 KO's). Both pugilists have excellent technique and will fight without mercy from the first bell of their 8 round duel. Buckingham's powerful pugilist, Alexandre Gaumont (1-0-0), is looking for his first knockout victory in his second professional fight when he faces Olivier Tshitumba (1-1-0, 1 K.O.) in a 4 round bout. In addition, boxing fans will be treated to a great rivalry between EOTTM boxer Thomas Chabot (3-0-0, 3 K.-O.) and Michel Paré (Professional Debut). These two boxers from Thetford Mines have done countless training rounds together since they were in the same gym during their Olympic boxing career. In addition, before turning pro, Michel Paré was the last boxer to fight against Chabot in a hotly contested bout. To start off the evening, Zachary Adu-Fleurant will make his professional debut against a more experienced opponent in Dylan Rushton (2-3-2).
