Fans want Marie-Ève ​​Dicaire

When Mary Spencer froze former world champion Chris Namus three times in the first round, Marie-Ève ​​Dicaire’s name began to circulate in the casino.

Namus had lost in 10 rounds to Dicaire in the final at the Videotron Center in Quebec in 2018. That evening, Dicaire became world champion. Ten rounds, some of which to Namus’ advantage.

And on Thursday, at the Casino de Montreal, in a jaw-dropping demonstration, Spencer knocked her down three times in less than two minutes. Fans were comparing and talking loudly about a clash between Dicaire and Spencer.

Several added that it would not happen, that Dicaire would go as far as possible to keep the belt. And then, the two women are part of different promotional companies.

“Fans obviously want this fight. So I’m ready to go out of my way to make it happen. The fans are right, “Camille Estephan explained yesterday morning after a short night’s sleep.

If you want to understand why people say the fight won’t happen, check out TVA Sports for Spencer’s two-minute fight. Dicaire probably saw the video too.

THE BEST GALA IN A LONG TIME

It was a boxing night like I don’t remember knowing. All nine fights were astounding. Artem Oganesyan was fighting in the fifth fight and, despite his cruel defeat, we still had to see a knockout. And all the clashes had been close.

Oganesyan ate a cursed fly. Yesterday he spent the night and part of the day in the hospital. Two broken ribs. Dante Jardon, the Mexican, beat him throughout the fight.

“Artem is only 22 years old. But this is not a normal defeat, “noted Marc Ramsay after the evening.

“He was devastated. We did everything to try to revive him, but his fall to the ground in the first round cut his legs, “continued the coach.

Ramsay and Estephan received a response Thursday: Oganesyan will have to fight at 147 pounds. He can’t beat a bull like “Crazy” Jardon at 154 pounds.

The fight that ignited the crowd was Steven Butler. He completely overwhelmed Brandon Brewer and I agree with Butler when he said that the referee should have stopped the duel after the sixth round.

Butler got some messy instructions from his corner, but when Rénald Boisvert took control, he applied himself to managing his win with methodical attacks.

Butler wouldn’t be Butler if he hadn’t indulged in some not-so-elegant antics when his opponent refused to get off despite the clubs, but he gave an encouraging performance. He is strong, he hits hard, he remains vulnerable to a right hand thrown over his shoulder, but as they say he is only 26 years old.

THE EXCELLENCE OF THE BAZINIANO

As for Erik Bazinyan, he was excellent. Against Marcelo Esteban Coceres, an excellent opponent who had given Billy Joe Saunders a hard time, he was technical, fast, at times powerful and, above all, he followed the game plan to the letter. He only has a couple of world title wins missing.

The rest, Félix Desjardins of the QMI Agency tells you …

Happy is he who like Ulysses …

L.-P. The grandson is pampered in life. He is a leader. He left Tampa on Wednesday to come to Montreal for the boxing gala. Tampa-Chicago, perfect.

In Chicago, he was told that his flight to Montreal United-Air Canada had been canceled. He then he sleeps in the hotel. The next day a Chicago-Boston and then Boston-Montreal flight was found. He gets up at a quarter to 6 to read a text message telling him that he will go to Detroit instead. He flew Chicago-Detroit and a four-hour stopover in Detroit.

He ends up arriving in Montreal with a crush on it unlike any baggage carousel. His two suitcases are not followed and there are 30 people in front of him lined up for lost baggage declarations.

“I went home for Steven Butler’s match. I lost my game in Tampa to come to boxing and I also lost my boxing night, “said Louis-Philippe Neveu of TVA Sports.

This will teach him. Why do you think he came back from West Palm Beach in an Audi?

THE POLICE OCCUPIED THE CABARET

I counted 20 cops in the casino cabaret. In a black Montreal police combat uniform. Plus the greens of the Sûreté du Québec. Apparently there was also the RCMP. He must be the polite guy I spoke to.

The promoter had not requested them. Nor the Régie des alcools, des course et des jeux, as Marco Bergeron confirms. Would this be the casino then?

Well, when you can’t offer valet service, when your carpets look dirty, when there was more atmosphere at my friend Pierre Rouleau’s funeral than in this seedy casino, you don’t make the world sick by scanning them at the entrance to the cabaret?

They explained to me that we are looking for weapons. Street gangs? We don’t want to say it. This would be the norm for cabaret. But I know the ladies had to take off their rings and rush into the cabaret.

I can’t wait to see what we do when Mario Pelchat offers his next singing tour …
