The wait is finally over for Quebecer Kim Clavel and Mexican Yesenia Gomez!
The two boxers, who will face off Friday night at the Casino de Montréal for the World Boxing Council (WBC) light flyweight world championship, took part in a press conference on Wednesday morning, on the sidelines of the fight which had been postponed several times.
“It's the most important moment of my career so far, because there are going to be others. It's 20 minutes of work that can change my life,” said Clavel, who was also shocked by the Gomez clan when she was accused in the spring of having forced a postponement by pretending to be hit by the COVID-19.
“I don't want to go back to the past, but if I could get in the ring now, I would,” noted Gomez.
“I don't let the past get to me because I need all my focus,” said Clavel, who was in good spirits.

Gomez (19-5-3, 6 K.-O.) holds the WBC title at 108 pounds while Clavel (15-0, 3 K .-O.) is the obligatory aspirant. Originally, this world championship fight was supposed to take place in December 2021.
“You can not imagine how excited I am about this world championship fight”, has for its share indicated the promoter Yvon Michel, specifying that all the tickets are sold.
In the event of a victory of Clavel, Michel specified that a rematch was an option that holds Gomez.
