THREE RIVERS — While the clash of titans between Simon Kean and Adam Braidwood continues to chat away on social networks, the semi-final of the gala June 16 at the Centre Gervais Auto Shawinigan has just been strung. The Novelist has, in effect, learned that Yves Ulysse Jr (15-1, 9 K.-O.) will rub to Ernesto Espana (25-0-1, 20 K.-O.), a veteran of the venezuelan still undefeated since the beginning of his career.

“It is important for us to provide a semi-final that looks great. There was never a half-measure with Ulysses then this is not obvious to find someone to fight him. With Ernesto Espana, it was a fight with a lot of potential. This is a guy who has not lost and who is ranked first in his country”, confirmed the Short-story the president of the Cataracts de Shawinigan, Roger Lavergne, who is organising the gala in partnership with the team Eye of the Tiger Management.
