It is with much pleasure that InterBox reveals the entire undercard for what is shaping up to be one of the most significant and
intriguing Main Event bouts in Montreal history. The City is vibrating in anticipation for friday's IBF Super Middleweight title showdown at the Bell Centre featuring champion Lucian Bute vs. mandatory contender and Golden Boy Promotions prodigy Librado Andrade.
Showtime will televise this fight live throughout America together with the Ronald Hearns vs. Paul Clavette main supporting bout. Indigo, Bell and Shaw will televise throughout Canada.
Also in action on October 24, will be heavyweight Jean-François Bergeron, 27-1-0 (19), who is set to step into the ring for the first time since his decision loss last year to WBA champion Nikolay Valuev.
Bergeron will face Dominick Guinn, 28-6-1 (19), a former amateur boxing standout in the United States who has fought professionally against some of the biggest names in the division such as James Toney (former World Champion), Serguei Lyakhovich (former World Champion), Monte Barrett and Eddie Chambers. The winner of this fight will be poised to re-enter the World Heavyweight ratings.
Renan St-Juste, 18-1-1 (12) is scheduled to defend his WBC Continental of Americas Middleweight title against knockout savvy Amilcar Edgardo Funes, 18-6 (15) of Argentina. Renan will be looking to beat Amilcar at his own game by registering his fifth KO in his last six fights.
Also on the card, crowd pleaser Sebastien Gauthier, 14-1 (10), will lace up the gloves against 86 fight veteran Dario Azuaga, 71-13-2 (60) from Paraguay. Azuaga has four times more knockouts than Gauthier has fights.
In a battle of undefeated prospects, Young Gun Pier-Olivier Cote, 3-0 (2), will look to derail Ramon Tito Esperanza, 6-0 (1), and introduce him to the loss column.
Eric Martel will make his pro debut against experienced challenger Stephane Tessier, 3-18 (1). Tessier is one of the few heavyweights who went the distance with highly regarded Alexander Povetkin.
The final bout on the card will feature the Sudbury Sensation Phil Boudreault, 3-0, who will fight in Montreal for the first time against Jean Charlemagne, 1-7-2, from Montreal.
