As a preventive measure, Eye of the Tiger Management has announced the modification of its boxing card presented at the Hotel Rimouski on November 21. It is the duel of Simon Kean (19-1, 18 K.-O.) against Stan Surmacz (12-1, 7 K.-O.) which is withdrawn given an injury to the left hand of the boxer from Trois-Rivières. .
The incident occurred on Saturday November 7 during a training session for his fight against Surmacz.
“We are disappointed to have to withdraw this promising fight where the two boxers had a good training camp for this championship duel. Simon Kean suffered what is known as the “boxer’s injury” during heavy training last Saturday. Simon (Kean) will however be back in the arena over the next year, ”said EOTTM president Camille Estephan.
Remember that the gala will be filled with excellent duels of the Carré d’As opponents Yves Ulysse jr. (18-2, 9 K.-O.) to Mathieu Germain (18-1-1, 8 K.-O.), as well as the one where Steve Claggett (28-5-2, 18 K.-O.) will face David Théroux (16-3, 11 KOs).
In addition, Raphaël Courchesne (8-0, 3 KOs) and Josh Wagner (6-0, 5 KOs) will play their perfect record in what promises to be a trench warfare scheduled for six rounds. Heavyweight Adam Dyczka (2-0, 1 KO.) will also be on this card as he returns against British Columbian Jaye Byard (0-1) in a four-assault duel on the waves of Punching Grace and Indigo from 7:30 p.m.
