So you might be wondering how good these Quebec fighters I speak of actually are? Well, Lucian “Le Tombeur” Bute is the current IBF super-middleweight champion, holding a 22-0 record with 18 coming by way of knockout. Not only is he undefeated but he has also exhibited power and brings scintillating energy and excitement to the crowd every time he steps into the ring.

Quebec’s Boxing Landscape

Lucian Bute, Joachim Alcine, Adrian Diaconu, Herman N’Goudjo and Jean Pascal are just a few amongst many Quebec fighters making waves across the boxing world. However, unless you are a French speaking boxing fan from Quebec, you haven’t seen or heard the impact these fighters are making in the sport. This is a problem that is deeply rooted in the lack of media coverage these up and coming stars receive in Canada. Not once have I heard any of these names mentioned on a national Canadian sports network. I put the blame directly on the shoulders of TSN, the Score and Rogers Sportsnet. How can these fighters expect to get into the spotlight without the media attention that they have earned? Currently, the only place one can watch their fights are on the TVA and RDS French television networks or live in person at the Bell Centre or the Casino de Montreal. So unless you subscribe to French cable television or live in the Montreal area you have definitely not been exposed to the tremendous potential these fighters have displayed. As a boxing fan I find this disheartening as these fighters have worked and trained vigorously to make names for themselves.
