They say when one door closes, another one opens. That’s definitely the case this week for fast rising Canadian welterweight Custio Clayton. The Nova Scotia born Quebec resident was looking forward to fighting in a showcase bout on last Saturday’s Adonis Stevenson vs. Andrez Fonfara II card at the Bell Centre in Montreal, but his bout was cancelled when his opponent came in a preposterous 20+ pounds heavy.

While he’ll have to wait to see his debut at Canada’s mecca of boxing in the famed Bell Centre, Clayton did receive good news this week as he’ll now headline the next installment of Groupe Yvon Michel’s popular ‘La Serie De Box’ on June 15 at Montreal Casino.
Way Productions’ Pierre Lavoie is reporting breaking news that Clayton’s opponent will be Johnny Navarrete (33-9-1, 15 KOs) and it looks as though the vacant IBF International and WBC Continental Americas welterweight titles will be on the line.
Watch the above exclusive video interview as Clayton talks about his new opponent and the new headlining date at Montreal Casino.
Other notable names poised to see action on the card are heavyweight Oscar Rivas, fast rising super middleweight Shakeel Phinn, Patrice Volny, Marie Eve Dicaire and more!
