Christian Mbilli vs Demond Nicholson Rescheduled For September 8th on ESPN+

Press Release:

Following the postponement of the gala featuring WBC, IBF, and WBO light heavyweight world champion Artur Beterbiev in a unification bout against Callum Smith on January 13, Eye of the Tiger has decided to shuffle its upcoming events to ensure that its athletes scheduled to box on August 19 remain active. The duel between Christian Mbilli and Demond Nicholson, as well as the fights of Moreno Fendero and Mehmet Unal, will thus be moved to the card of the gala to be held on September 8 at the Casino du Lac-Leamy.

Currently ranked 1st in the WBC super middleweight division, #3 according to The Ring Magazine and the WBA, and #4 in the IBF, Christian Mbilli (24-0, 20 KOs), the WBC Continental Americas champion, must deliver a flawless performance against American Demond Nicholson (26-5-1, 22 KOs) if he wants to maintain his legitimacy to become a contender for the 168lb world titles held by Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. Having faced some of the biggest names in the division, including Edgar Berlanga and Demetrius Andrade, Nicholson is an experienced boxer known for his offensive style, guaranteeing an explosive spectacle for boxing enthusiasts.

Two championship fights will be presented in Gatineau, as the new NABF super lightweight champion, Steve Claggett (35-7-2, 25 KOs), will defend his title for the first time since winning it last June against former WBA world champion Alberto Machado. He will face the boxer known as "El Tiburon," known for his devastating punching power, Carlos Sanchez Valadez (24-1, 19 KOs).

Also in action at this event will be the pride of Buckingham, Alexandre Gaumont (8-0, 6 KOs), who will face another undefeated boxer, Ulices Tovar Rivera (8-0, 5 KOs), and Vanessa Lepage-Joanisse (5-1, 2 KOs), who will go up against Timea Nagy (2-1, 2 KOs). will also return to the ring, along with Christopher Guerrero (7-0, 3 KOs), Luis Santana (9-0, 3 KOs), and Jhon Orobio (3-0, 3 KOs).
