Professional boxing returned to Blainville, Quebec on Saturday night where InterBox presented a stellar night of boxing action for the first time under the leadership of newly appointed president Antonin Decarie in association with Eye of the Tiger Management. In the main event of the evening, super lightweight Yves Ulysse Jr. (11-0, 8 KOs) returned to action for the first time in 2016 with a tremendous display of heart getting up from a knockdown to rally back and stop Mexico’s Francisco Javier Perez (15-8-1, 11 KOs). Ulysse Jr, who had been sidelined with an injury thus far in 2016, shook off some ring rust and boxed well early. In the third round he was caught with a big punch and was in a world of trouble. He showed a lot of heart and resolve to get up and survive through some duress to find his legs and survive the round. In the fourth the Montreal charge came out with a vengeance looking to turn the tables and staggered the Mexican with a barrage of violent shots prompting a referee stoppage. It was high drama and a sensational ending! In undercard action, big punching Quebec based Ayaz Hussain (11-1, 9 KOs) returned to action for the first time since suffering a knockout loss in May and rebounded nicely with an eighth round TKO over rugged Mexican veteran Juan Armando Garcia in a super lightweight contest. Rounding out the card was rising Canadian welterweight southpaw Batyrzhan Jukembayev (from Shu, Kazakhstan by way of Montreal) moving to 5-0 (5 KOs) with a sensational second round stoppage of Cecilio Santos.

Ryan Young Blasts Out Wagner for Canadian Crown; Crowley Dominates Bzowski

By FightFan News Wire (24-Sep-2016)

United Boxing Promotions results from the Hershey Centre in Mississauga, Ontario!

When the dust settled following United Boxing Promotions’ short but thrilling main event last night in Mississauga, Ryan Young (10-0-0, 8KOs) of Oakville, Ontario, was the lone man standing in the ring. His opponent, Ryan Wagner (6-4-0, 3KOs) of Orangeville, was sent sprawling through the ropes, while the referee waved off the fight and hurriedly tended to the fallen boxer. In less than three rounds, Young administered three knockdowns, walking away with the KO victory and the Canadian super welterweight crown. Young’s combination of patience and power was utterly devastating. If last night is any indication of what’s to come, the hard-hitting champion may enjoy a very long reign.

Young vs. Wagner heats up: United Promotions red hot card set for Saturday at Mississauga’s Hershey Centre!

By FightFan News Wire (23-Sep-2016)

Canadian Championship Quotes: Ryan Wagner and Ryan Young Discuss the “Battle of Ontario”

On September 24, United Boxing Promotions presents an all-Ontario clash for the Canadian super welterweight title featuring Oakville prospect Ryan Young (9-0-0, 7KOs) and Orangeville battler Ryan Wagner (6-3-0, 3KOs) at Mississauga’s Hershey Centre.

The heavy-handed Young demolished his international competition over the last two years before turning his attention towards his fellow Canucks and a national title. Most recently, Young took on Hungarian super welterweight king Krisztian Santa (12-7-2, 12KOs), stopping his European adversary at 2:38 of the fifth round. In Wagner, however, the Oakville prospect tangles with his most seasoned foe to date. With wins over western standouts Cody Ries (6-1-0, 2KOs) and Rory Coveney (10-2-0, 4KOs), as well as a victory of reigning Canadian middleweight champion Stuart McLellan (16-2-3, 5KOs), Wagner is no stranger to succeeding in the spotlight.

Video by Ace Freeman
