A boxing buzz is once again taking over Quebec City as tickets for the eagerly anticipated bout/event featuring Éric Lucas (39-7-3, 15 KO) vs. Librado Andrade (28-3-0, 21 KO) officially go on sale on Thursday, April 1st 2010 starting at 10 AM.
Quebec boxer Pier-Olivier "Apou" Côté (10-0-0, 6 KO), who will box on the Montreal Bell Centre card on April 17th, is also scheduled to fight in front of his Quebec City fans on May 28th. His stablemate Éric Martel (3-0-0, 2 KO), from Quebec City, will also fight on the card.
InterBox fighter Benoit Gaudet (21-2-0, 8 KO) is excited and motivated to be included in this card, and will be looking to continue his climb back up the World rankings ladder.
Benoit will be participating in his second fight since his defeat last May 2nd vs Humberto Soto in a WBC World title bout. On December 11th he beat Jorge Banos by TKO at the Montreal Bell Centre. All undercard opponents will be unveiled in the coming weeks.
In addition to line-up, and provided he can beat Moses Avizo (professional debut) on March 25th in California, Trois Rivières sensation Mikaël Zewski (1-0-0, 1 KO) will more than likely be added to the Pepsi Colisee card. Zewski would be boxing in Quebec for the first time in his young career.
Eric Lucas is following his daily training program geared towards his tough opponent Librado Andrade. On Monday he will join his trainer Stephan Larouche in Florida for one week, before coming back to continue his physical training sessions. The 38 year old former champion will concentrate on his ring work with Stephan Larouche after April 17th.
“Last November our population proved that it only wants to see high caliber boxing Galas, such as those organized by InterBox, held in this City” states Quebec City Mayor Mr. Regis Lebeaume.
“I am certain this second major Gala will confirm the passion of our people for the sport of boxing. In addition, the Gala will feature some local talent that will be very excited to demonstrate their capabilities in the ring to a large audience”.
