  Ulysse Jr. Dominant Against Théroux

Eye of the Tiger Management (EOTTM) presented today the first boxing gala infront of an audience in Quebec in over a year. The event, presented by La Reine des Bières, Mise-O-Jeu and Videotron, was held in front of a crowd of nearly 1,500 people at the Centre Gervais Auto in Shawinigan. This event featured the long awaited fight between Yves Ulysse Jr. and David Théroux. From the first bell, Ulysse Jr. rushed his opponent and managed to send him to the floor in the third round. Although overwhelmed by a very mobile Ulysse, David Théroux never lost hope and tried, as best he could, to get to Ulysse Jr. by trapping him in the ropes on several occasions. However, it was in the 5th round that Ulysse Jr. managed to defeat the Sorel native as his trainers put an end to the fight.

In the second main event of the evening, Clovis Drolet faced a much bigger boxer than him in Danyk Croteau. From the very first moments of the fight, Clovis seemed to study his opponent and had to endure some good attacks from Croteau who reached him through his guard. However, Drolet's clan quickly adjusted and the Beauport native managed to defeat Croteau in the third round in spectacular fashion. In addition, Raphael Courchesne was making his tenth fight and was looking to get back to winning ways against the powerful Ontario boxer, Larone Whyte. At the beginning of the fight, Whyte was very aggressive but was not able to destabilize Courchesne. Courchesne remained focused on his goal and was able to end the fight with the knockout of the night. It was with a combination repeated several times in the gym (left jab to the body followed by a left hook to the head) that the athlete nicknamed "Bad Intentions" put his opponent to sleep. Without even starting the 8 count, the referee immediately put an end to the fight in the 5th round. On his side, Thomas Chabot dominated Michel Paré from the beginning to the end of their duel. Chabot showed great skills in this fight and managed to defeat his former training partner in the 3rd round, in a fight scheduled for four. For the first duel of the evening, the boxing fans present at the Gervais Auto Center were able to witness the first professional fight of the very talented Zachary Adu Fleurant. Fleurant was facing a very experienced opponent in Dylan Rushton. Rushton even managed to shake the man nicknamed "The Diamond" twice. However, Fleurant was the one who ended the fight with his arms up in the air, recording his first victory as a professional boxer.
