Groupe Yvon Michel (GYM) is hosting a series of four boxing events and the third one is happening this Friday at the Bell Centre. Entitled “Fast and Furious” the series is presented in collaboration with the Casino de Montreal. The main event of the evening will feature a top ranked local boxer: Antonin Décarie (23-1-0, 7KO).
Antonin “Fast” Décarie is a top welterweight boxer and he too will be featured versus a different boxer at each of the four events. He also wants a shot at the world title, but has a difficult task as he has to face boxers like Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao. Décarie will be facing off against American Shamone “The Truth” Alvarez (21-3-0, 12 KO).
Another local boxer will be fighting on this evening as JoJo Dan (27-1-0, 15 KO) will be facing off against the ex-World Champion, Steve “2Pound” Forbes (35-8-0, 11 KO). The night of boxing will not end there as there will be at least six other fights.
Specially set up for the event, the Bell Centre will be transformed into a boxing friendly venue. On the floor will be VIP tables with the ring closer to the rest of the seats. On top of that, to ensure that everyone gets a good view of the action, a giant HD screen will be set up with state of the art sound.
-Event Time: 7:00 p.m. (Doors @ 6:30 p.m.)
