The Yvon Michel Group announced today at a press conference that Mazlum Akdeniz (19-0, 8 KO) will be featured in the final of its gala on May 16 at the Cabaret du Casino de Montréal. For the occasion, he will face left-hander Sebastian Aguirre (19-4, 12 KO) in a fight scheduled for 10 rounds. The latter is not on his first trip to Canada, having fought 9 rounds with Steve Claggett in 2022. It was important for Akdeniz's entourage to face a left-hander, because the Quebecer will serve as a training partner for the former undisputed welterweight champion, Josh Taylor, one of the best left-handers in the world.

After her decisive victory on April 4, Kim Clavel (18-2, 3 KO) will return to the ring to face the American Katherine Renee Lindenmuth (6-2, 2 KO). Clavel is now ranked #1 in the IBF and #2 in the WBC. With a victory on May 16, a world championship fight could arrive quite quickly for the former champion.

In a 100% Quebec duel, Theo Owusu (3-0-1, 2 KO) will face Zacharie Loiseau (3-0-1, 1 KO). A real 50/50 duel, while both boxers have an identical record and will want to use this opportunity to shine. Exactly the type of fight that helps move the entire boxing industry forward.

To open the gala, two Quebec hopefuls will be in action. The popular Abed Almoty El Safadi (6-0, 2 KO) will face Mark Andrejev (2-0, 0 KO), an undefeated boxer from Estonia. After seeing her fight on April 4 canceled, Winner Bondo (pro debut) will finally have the chance to make her professional debut at this gala against an opponent who will be announced soon.

During this press conference, the Yvon Michel Group also announced that another gala will take place at the Cabaret du Casino de Montréal on June 20. Former world title contender Marie Pier Houle (10-1-1, 3 KOs) will make her first final against dangerous Mexican Karla Ramos Zamora (11-10-1, 4 KOs). . The latter knocked out Montrealer Jessica Camara during her last visit to Canada. Houle will therefore have to be at his best to hope to win this duel.
