Montreal, November 30 2010: This Friday, December 3rd, marks the highly anticipated second installment of Groupe Yvon Michels all-new FAST AND FURIOUS boxing series from the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada. All the action will be shown worldwide on boxingchannel.com Friday, December 3rd at 9 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
On October 29th, 2,117 fans streamed through the doors of the home of the legendary Montreal Canadiens for the first FAST AND FURIOUS event to witness David Lemieuxs crushing KO victory over Hector Camacho Jr.
This time around, the main event will feature a long awaited grudge-match between Montreal-area rivals Sébastien Double Trouble Demers (31-3-0, 11KO) and Renan St-Juste (21-2-1, 14KO) as they battle for the NABO Super Middleweight Title. Both fighters held world rankings before hitting unexpected roadblocks in their last outings. These 2 proud warriors know each other well and have built up a real animosity in the 3-year lead-up to this fight. The winner of this bout is guaranteed to be back in the mix on the world stage, and there is no question that they will give it everything theyve got to take home the belt.
In the co-main event of the evening, WBC International Champion and knockout specialist David Lemieux (24-0-0, 23KO), ranked #3 in the world, will be back in the ring for the 5th time in 2010 as he faces off against Grandville, Michigans Purnell Knock You Out Gates (18-1-0, 13KO). Lemieux, of Laval, Quebec, is closing in on a championship eliminator against the dangerous Mexican Marco Antonio Rubio (48-5-1, 41KO), but he must first get by Gates, who would surely love nothing more than to derail Lemieuxs train to glory in their scheduled 10 round bout.
Rounding out the already stacked television portion of the card will be another North American Championship, as undefeated prospect Arash Usmanee (9-0-0, 5KO) will fight once again in his new hometown of Montreal, this time against the tough-as-nails Mexico City native Pedro Navarrete (25-9-3, 14KO) for the NABA Super Featherweight Title over a scheduled 10 rounds. This fight marks an important step-up in Usmanees career, as he comes off a big win over hometown hero Anthony Flores (9-2-1, 6KO) on October 8th in Philadelphia.
