Lontchi devastated by Jacko news!

Undefeated world title contender Olivier Lontchi is “devastated” by the news of Michael Jackson’s death. Lontchi (18-0-2, 8 KOs), a native of Cameroon, who fights out of Montréal, Québec, Canada, challenges undefeated WBO junior featherweight champion Juan Manuel “Juanma” Lopez (25-0, 23 KOs), of Caguas, Puerto Rico, in the main event of “Latin Fury 9” on Saturday in Atlantic City. Promoted by Top Rank, the four-bout “Latin Fury 9” will be broadcast Live on Pay-Per-View, beginning at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT. “Lontchi came up to me this morning and specifically asked Top Rank’s technical crew to download as many of Michael Jackson’s songs as possible to play in his locker room tomorrow night for inspiration,” said Lee Samuels of Top Rank. “Michael Jackson is his all-time favorite artist and Olivier is making his ring entrance to Jackson’s “Thriller” music video which will be projected inside the Adrian Phillips Ballroom. I wouldn’t be surprised if he moonwalked into the ring.”
