A painful defeat on all fronts for Kim Clavel

A painful defeat on all fronts for Kim Clavel


Quebecer Kim Clavel fought well, but lost to Mexican Jessica Nery Plata by unanimous decision of the judges, Friday at Place Bell.

Nery Plata (29-2-0, 3 KOs) dismissed Clavel (16-1-0, 3 KOs) with difficulty. The judges ruled in her favor by virtue of cards of 97-3, 97-93 and 96-94.

Clavel, 32, thus failed to unify the titles of the WBC and the WBA for light flyweight.

Positive results

Yvon Michel must have been jubilant before this disappointing conclusion, since all the other boxers under his aegis have beaten their opponent.

Montreal Mazlum Akdeniz (18-0-0, 8 KOs) won the WBC Americas continental title in the super- lightweights by disposing of Christian Bielma (19-5-2, 7 KOs) by unanimous decision.

The amateurs gathered in Laval also saw the Quebecer Marie-Pier Houle (8-0- 1, 2 K.-O.) to easily get rid of the Mexican Marisol Moreno (6-4-0, 0 K.-O.) by unanimous decision of the judges.

Same story for the Canadian Eric Basran (3-0-0, 1 KO), who won against Mexican Juan Carlos Ramirez (4-3-0, 0 KO).

In his second professional fight, the former Olympian pienne Caroline Veyre (2-0, 0 KOs) dominated Mexican Estefania Gonzalez Franco (3-6-0, 0 KOs).

Quebecer Derek Pomerleau (4 -0-0, 2 KOs) also preserved his perfect record thanks to a unanimous decision against Mexican Gustavo Magana Rodriguez (3-2-1, 1 KOs).
