The weather may be cold as of late in beautiful Montreal, Quebec, but Saturday night will be red hot inside the local boxing ring as Groupe Yvon Michel presents “la Série de boxe” at Casino de Montréal. Rising undefeated Canadian based Columbian light heavyweight Eleider ‘Storm’ Alvarez (20-0, 10 KOs) is set to headline looking to keep busy ahead of his recently publicized Canadian super fight with Lucian Bute set for Feb. 24. On Saturday night, Alvarez will face Poland’s Norbert Dabrowski (19-5-1, 7 KOs) in a ten round contest highlighting the exciting night of action. In a co-main event, IBF international middleweight champion and local Quebec hero Francis Lafreniere (12-5-2, 7 KOs) will clash with Poland’s Damian Mielewczyk (10-2, 7 KOs) in an eight round bout. Also seeing action in an exciting co-featured bout is surging and red hot Shakeel ‘The Jamaican Juggernaut’ Phinn (10-1, 6 KOs) looking to pick up his sixth victory in 2016 when he takes on France’s Mehdi Madani (13-7-1).
