This is the thinner and faster Oscar Rivas we saw in the Plaza Hotel on Tuesday night. There is no doubt that the ultra-lightweight category suits him like a glove.
His fists exploded more times than he exploded in a 240-pound battle. His movements are also smoother.
What’s next for Rivas? The battle for the world championship in the super heavy (224 lb) category.
Promoter Yvon Michel explained: “In the beginning, our goal was to shock Bryant Jennings.” Then the negotiations began to circle. Jennings’ interest is weaker than it looks.
“We immediately contacted the camp of South Africa’s Kevin Lerena (26-1, 13 KOs), the latter ranked second in the WBC. We hope to reach an agreement before April.”
However, Michel must explore Top Rank and ESPN’s interest in the possible Rivas-Lerena impact. It must be used as a good argument for obtaining its financial support.
The boss of GYM hopes that this world championship battle will be held somewhere in Montreal in June. Marie Eve Dickel may return to the ring tonight.
After returning to the victory over Luis, Rivas no longer has his usual coach in his corner. Jessy Ross Thompson (Jessy Ross Thompson) gave him advice in two rounds to replace Marc Ramsay.
Thompson is passionate about his sport. He is part of a new generation of coaches of Vincent Auclair, Samuel Décarie and Luc-Vincent Ouellet.
“I like his experience. In the last two weeks of my training camp, we worked very well together. He did a good job. Of course, this is different from Marc, who I have worked for 11 years.” Rivas (Rivas) said.
Sylvera Louis expressed courage and agreed to face Rivas on Tuesday night. He also proved that he is a smart athlete.
