TORONTO (December 16, 2011) - Popular Romanian boxer Victor Lupo has fully prepared for the toughest fight of his pro career, tomorrow (Saturday) night in the 12-round main event against former world title challenger Antonin Decarie for the vacant World Boxing Council ("WBC") International Welterweight Championship, at Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec City.

Lupo (19-1-2, 9 KOs), who lives in Toronto, earned his title shot having defeated former world champion Junior Witter (37-3-2) last February by a 10-round decision for the vacant WBC International Silver title. Presently rated No. 19 by the WBC, Lupo is a former Canadian welterweight and WBC Fedecentro middleweight champion, who is unbeaten the past four years ago.

WBC #26-rated Decarie, of Quebec, is a former Canadian light welterweight and NABO welterweight champion, who lost a 12-round unanimous decision in 2010 to Souleymane M'baye for the interim World Boxing Association ("WBA") welterweight title.

Lupo's Hennessy Sports Canada stable-mate, undefeated light heavyweight Lionnell "Lonnie B" Thompson (11-0, 7 KOs), is also fighting tomorrow night in an eight-round bout versus Christian Cruz (12-12-1, 10 KOs).

Thompson, fighting out of Buffalo, was a U.S. amateur standout who was rated as high as No. 2 in his division. He was a five-time New York Golden Glove and three-time Empire State champion.

Other members of the Hennessy Sports Canada stable include NABA super featherweight champion and that organization's 2011 Fighter of the year, Logan Cotton McGuinness, and unbeaten prospects Tyler Asselstine, Samuel Vargas and Brandon "Bad Boy" Cook.
