Jardon (35-8, 25 K.-O.), a veteran of 43 professional fights who recently fought in England and Russia, did not want to know anything about the role of extras as soon as the hostilities began. His powerful hook landed the Moscow native in the first round.

“Crazy” Jardon lived up to his nickname by exerting sustained pressure on his rival and multiplying the assaults while Oganesyan waited for his moment … which ultimately never came.

The Mexican demonstrated his great stamina and exemplary fitness, keeping his face-to-face in the corner for the vast majority of the fight.

Successful return for Yves Ulysse junior

Montrealer Yves Ulysse junior (21-2, 12 K.-O.) didn’t miss the chance on his return to action after an absence of nearly a year. He showed Argentine Reuquen Facundo Arce (14-7-2, 7 KOs) the stars in the third round.

The one who wore the Montreal Carabin colors when he arrived in the ring studied his 26-year-old rival early in the fight, before inflicting a violent blow to the body to stop the duel.

His next goal? A fight for the world championship, no less.

Leila Beaudoin is still undefeated

She also made the walls of the Cabaret resonate by hitting a dry right in the face of Anouar in the third round, but the native of Le Cannet remained paralyzed, also trying to distract the opponent with facial expressions. The Frenchwoman, however, was only very rarely able to break through Beaudoin’s armor.

La Témiscouataine was not inactive in 2022, she who was in her third meeting in four months. However, she has no plans to quell her excitement about her anytime soon, promising a return to the ring later this year.
