At the Yvon Michel Group (GYM) gala in Quebec on Tuesday night, a boxer played six nights in the hospital. After six nights of matches, it was two more than he agreed. Night.
We tried to understand the reasons behind the last-minute change, which has been endorsed by Régie des alcools, descourses and des jeux.
Due to the cancellation of two games in a short time, the promoter Yvon Michel (Yvon Michel) only has one card with five cards left. He needs a solution to avoid long pauses between each confrontation.
In a phone call, his co-sponsor Yan Pellerin suggested that he play two more games on the map. His first attempt failed with the efforts of Sébastien Bouchard and Mario Perez.
Pellerin then turned to Roberge and Charbonneau.
“My request is very friendly, because I know them very well,” Pellerin explained when he contacted the Montreal Journal on Wednesday. I did not force them to play six games. They accepted my proposal without pressure. “
According to our information, Charbonneau and Roberge do not have the best training camp due to the pandemic. Both athletes clearly know that in the next two rounds, they may run out of energy.
On Tuesday afternoon, Pellerin’s request was approved by Régie’s representative Jean Douville. Can the manager refuse to protect the boxer from self-harm?
“It did not violate our regulations,” said spokespersons for Régie des alcools, des Courses and des jeux and Joyce Tremblay. This agreement was reached in good faith between the two businesses, and Mr. Duville has the right to accept the agreement. This is not a precedent. “
According to Rule 152, there is no provision that Charbonneau (War Three) and Roberge (World War I) cannot play six rounds despite their limited professional experience.
The Régie contract between the two parties has been modified. The Reggies did not object to this six-round match for two reasons. Both boxers accepted the changes. Then, in the second step, the two athletes have the same caliber.
This battle was won by Charbonneau in the split decision. Soon after meeting with Régie’s doctor, Roberge’s pressure dropped due to dehydration.
