Top-ten Canadian and undefeated super middleweight boxer Erik Bazinyan will face America’s Alantez Fox in a 10-round main event this Thursday, 2nd February 2023, at Casino de Montréal in Montreal, Canada.
After leaving Armenia at the age of 16, Bazinyan (28-0, 21 KOs) stayed in Canada for his entire professional career. He now gets back into the ring after a unanimous decision victory over former world title challenger Marcelo Esteban Coceres last June, knowing that victory over Fox could secure him one step closer to that elusive world title.
Meanwhile, Fox, boasting a 28-3-1 record with 13 knockouts, has plenty of experience going up against top-tier competition. His most recent outing was in December 2021, when he was stopped in the fourth round by David Morrell. Prior to that, he hadn’t lost in three straight fights.
In chief support, Yves Ulysse Jr. and Gabriel Golez Valenzuela will go head-to-head. The former has four victories following a narrow defeat to Ismael Barroso.
The Canadian middleweight contender Alexandre Gaumont (6-0, 4 KOs) has a chance to go on a three-fight winning streak if he can overcome Carlos Gallego Montijo (8-4, 6 KOs).
Raphael Courchesne (9-1, 4 KOs), who has not fought in almost 19 months, is set to go against Diego Garduno Reyes (10-1-1, 4 KOs) in a six-round welterweight match.
In the same division, welterweight sensation Christopher Guerrero (5-0, 1 KOs) is about to make his return to the ring in 2023 with a six-round match against the unbeaten Edwin Villarreal Flores (3-0-1, 3 KOs).
All the while, Avery Martin Duval (8-0-1, 4 KOs) intends to stretch his series of victories to five against Eduardo Mota Garcia (7-1-1, 2 KOs), who has triumphed over two previously undefeated hopefuls in his last three bouts.
So make sure you check it out. All of the fights, including Bazinyan-Fox and the opening matches, will only be broadcast in the United States on ESPN+ beginning at 7 pm Eastern Time/4 pm Pacific Time.
