Jean joins FightClub


The February 16th card at the Lac Leamy Casino in Gatineau Quebec is taking shape as undefeated super-lightweight Dierry Jean (23-0 15KO) will be headlining and expected to defend his NABA belt, one of two North American belts the talented fighter possesses.

Jean the #1 WBC rated super-lightweight will be part of promoter/manager Camille Estephan’s FightClub series in what looks to be an action packed card. Jean scored an impressive 11th round stoppage in his last fight in October over Mexican Ivan Cano and looks to build on the momentum he created when he nabbed top spot. A successful outing a defence of his NABA should help propel the Haitian born Montrealer up the ladder of the WBA where he currently sits at #14.

Joining Jean on the card will be Ahmad Cheikho who is set to meet Giuseppe Lauri and Andrew Gardiner who will be fighting eight rounds in his adopted hometown and is scheduled to go against Konstantin Piternov of Russia. Also expected to appear are Baha Laham, Brandon Cook, Schiller Hyppolite, Chris Plaitis, Pascal Villeneuve and Mian Hussain.
