The Granbyen Yan Pellerin has achieved the dream of many boxers in passing the K. O. his opponent in the first round, Saturday, at a gala event presented by Groupe Yvon Michel at the Cabaret du Casino de Montréal.
While he was under pressure in a corner of the ring, the athlete of 38 years has sent Alberta’s Justin Schmit to the mat with a right hook.
“The first shot that began the work, it is the left hook to the body. We saw back, he was wrong. He then returned, and I spent [with a move] against the temple, “explained the man they call” Wild Thing ” in interview to the channel, TVA Sports.
It was a fifth victory (and second in a row by K. O.) in six fights for Pellerin in the category of light-heavyweight. Also coming in the middle of mixed martial arts, Schmit now shows a record of two wins and four setbacks in boxing.
Pellerin played his first bout of six rounds, but his stamina has not been finally put to the test.
In the pages of The Voice of the East last week, “Wild Thing” expressed his desire to tackle, in the short or medium term, at the canadian championships in the division of 175 pounds (light heavyweight).
Always in the light-heavyweight, Alex Beaulé has succeeded in his professional debut Saturday.
Note that the Granbyen adoption has had to deal with a change of opponent late. While it was originally scheduled to face Alberta’s Zach Manywounds, Beaulé has rather defeated Alexander Rosales Cruz (file of 0-3) by K. O. technical in the fourth round.
The referee Albert Padulo, Jr. intervened after Beaulé has sent the Mexican into the ropes with good shots from both hands. A decision that has obviously not pleased Rosales Cruz.
During the finale of the gala, David Theroux has beaten the Nicaraguan Jose Alfaro by forfeit in the sixth round in the category of welterweight.
