Following his successful return to the ring last December, Éric Lucas (39-7-3 15 KO) will be looking to add a 40th win to his outstanding pro record on Friday, May 28th in Quebec City.
Considered a Quebec boxing hero, Lucas will be lacing up the gloves against the ever popular Librado Andrade (28-3-0, 21 KO). Andrade is no stranger to Quebec boxing fans, having fought 4 times in this province and showing a record of 2 wins (vs Otis Grant and Vitaliy Tsypko) and 2 losses (both to Lucian Bute, the last by sensational KO last November 28th at the same venue).
This bout will be a tough task for Eric, who has only fought once in the last four years plus. According to Eric, his ring experience and strong defensive skills are the keys to beating Librado.
The former WBC champion has not let up on the intensity level in the gym and will continue his preparation in Florida with his trainer Stephan Larouche and stablemate Lucian Bute.
“I am certain many will tell me I set the bar too high and that the challenge is too big, but this is exactly the type of fight I was looking for when I made my return to the ring.
"I felt the electric atmosphere of the Pepsi Colisee last November 28th when Lucian won, and Quebec City really touched me. Now I want to experience that euphoria for myself in that City” states Eric Lucas.
