By James Slater

Looks like unbeaten Canadian Dierry Jean (24-0, 16 KOs) will face Cleotis “Mookie” Pendarvis (17-3-2 , 6 KOs) in a final eliminator for the IBF 140 title currently held by Lamont Peterson, who is scheduled to fight Lucas Matthysse in the summer. Southpaw Pendarvis said the following about the opportunity to face the unbeaten fighter from Quebec, Montreal: “I am excited, humbled and welcoming of this eliminator fight for the mandatory position. Where I find myself today is a culmination of all my tireless years in the gym helping prepare some of the top tier talent to get ready for their fights. This is my time. I am ready. I have been ready and look forward to stepping into the spotlight. Thanks to my manager Warren Wilkerson for his continuous support and efforts on my behalf.”
