Bute vs. Pascal Undercard

PhilBoxing.com


Carl Froch vs Mikkel Kessler II live on big screens
Six bouts added to the Bute vs. Pascal Card on May 25
Alvarez, Bizier and Zewski in action


MONTREAL (April 30, 2013) - InterBox and Groupe Yvon Michel (GYM) are proud to announce all six undercard bouts that will support the historic fight between Lucian Bute (31-1-0 24 KO) and Jean Pascal (27-2-1 16 KO) on Saturday night, May 25, at Bell Centre in Montreal. Four title belts will be on the line on this Mega Card that has already convinced more than 17,000 fans to purchase tickets. Several new good tickets were placed into circulation for the general public on Monday.

Froch vs Kessler II: IBF and WBA World Unification Title fights airing live at the Bell Centre
The evening's festivities will get underway at 6:30 p.m. ET at Bell Centre with the live presentation of the much- anticipated rematch between Carl Froch (30-2-0, 22 KOs) and Mikkel Kessler (46-2-0, 35 KOs) on the big screens. The winner of this bout will unify the Super Middleweight titles (IBF & WBA). Both boxers squared-off for the first time during the Super 6 Boxing Series in April 2010 in Denmark, with Kessler walking away from a hotly contested showdown with a unanimous decision victory on home soil (115-113, 116-112, and 117-111). Having promised Froch a rematch in his home country, Kessler signed on the dotted line to fight Froch at the 02 Arena in London. Froch is looking to avenge his loss and add the WBA belt to his long list of accomplishments.

will air Bute vs. Pascal and Kessler vs. Froch II.

Alvarez vs Green
Undefeated No.5-rated WBA Light Heavyweight contender Eleider Alvarez (12-0-0, 8 KOs) will be looking to score his fourth consecutive knockout at Bell Centre. His opponent is tough and certainly no stranger to Quebec. Allan Green (32-4-0, 22 KOs), a former Super 6 contestant, is 2-0 in Quebec rings, having beaten Quebecers Sebastien Demers and Renan St-Juste. This bout is scheduled for 10 rounds.

Gauthier vs Roman
Sebastien Gauthier (22-4-0, 14 KOs), from St-Jerome, Quebec, has not had life easy his last few fights, having come out on the losing end of physical and bloody wars with ex-World champions Steve Molitor and Rodrigo Guerrero. Gauthier will be looking to renew his career with a win, but he will be facing another tough test in California boxer Manuel Roman (15-2-3, 6 KOs) in an eight-round bout.

Bizier vs Rios
Quebec native Kevin Bizier (20-0-0, 14 KOs) is set for his second fight in 2013. His opponent, the rugged and experienced Aldo Nazareno Rios (48-6-0, 11 KOs), from Argentina, will be looking to capitalize on Bizier's inactivity. Ranked IBF #3 and WBA #6, Bizier will have his hands full with Rios, who has only been knockedout only once in 54 fights. Rios' two defeats by decision in World title fights prove that he is a tough contender. This bout is scheduled for 8 rounds.

Zewski vs Samuels
Coming off another eye-popping victory last April 13th in New York, Mikael Zewski (19-0-0, 15 KOs), from Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, will reacquaint himself with his Quebec fans on May 25. His opponent, Derrick Samuels (18-4-1, 5 KOs), will have a tough task in front of him. The last time the undefeated Zewski boxed at home, he annihilated his opponent in 37 seconds (Cesar Chavez on November 3, 2012). Zewski will be looking to make another huge statement on May 25 in this scheduled eight-round fight.

Bouchard vs Cotroni Jr: A local fight that promises emotion
Sebastien Bouchard (6-0-0, 2 KOs), from Quebec, will face the biggest test of his young career on May 25. Undefeated in six bouts, he will lace-up the gloves vs. Frank Cotroni Jr. (7-1-0 4 KOs) in a junior middleweight bout scheduled for six rounds. The blue-chip prospect of the Club Empire Gym in Quebec City is looking at this fight as his springboard into bigger and more meaningful fights. Both boxers have been calling each other out for the last year, which is great news for fight fans.
