Dawson-Stevenson undercard nearly complete

The June 8 undercard on the event headlined by World Boxing Council (WBC) light heavyweight champion Chad Dawson (31-2-0, 17 KOs) defending against Adonis “Superman” Stevenson (20-1-0, 17 KOs) at the historic Bell Centre in Montreal is now pretty much complete.

As previously noted, former two-time world champion Yuriorkis “El Ciclon” Gamboa (22-0-0, 16 KOs) will be showcased in the co-feature against Darley Perez (28-0-0, 19 KOs), as Gamboa makes a foray into the lightweight division. Other bouts include light heavyweight Eleider “Storm” Alvarez, middleweight KO artist David Lemieux, unbeaten heavyweight Didier “Big Daddy” Bence, former world amateur champion Artur Beterbiev and 2008 Puerto Rico Olympian Jose “Sniper” Pedraza.

Fast-rising light heavyweight Eleider “Storm” Alvarez (12-0-0, 8 KOs) already ranked #4 by the World Boxing Association (WBA) and #7 by the World Boxing Organization (WBO) confronts a seasoned veteran in American opponent Allan Green (32-4-0, 22 KOs), who participated in the famous international Super Six tournament.

Power-punching middleweight David Lemieux (28-2-1, 27 KOs) faces Polish fighter Robert Swierzbinski (11-1-0, 3 KOs).

In a clash of unbeaten heavyweights, Didier “Big Daddy” Bence (8-0-0, 2 KOs) and Eric Barrack (7-0-0, 6 KOs) meet in a classic confrontation between a brawler (Barrack) and boxing stylist (Bence).

Local favorites Sébastien Bouchard (6-0-0, 2KO) and Mascouche Francesco Cotroni (7-1-0, 4 KOs) meet in a jr middleweight bout.

GYM predicts a great career for former world amateur champion Artur Beterbiev, who will make his professional debut against California invader Christian Cruz (12-14-1, 10 KOs).

Finally, another rising star in professional boxing, 2008 Puerto Rico Olympian Jose “Sniper” Pedraza (12-0-0, 8 KOs), will also be fighting against an opponent to be announced shortly.

The event is part of that weekend’s Canada Formula One Grand Prix activities.
