Lemieux fight card postponed

By Gabriel F. Cordero

The April 17 fight card at the Videotron Center in Quebec City to be headlined by former IBF middleweight champion David Lemieux (42-4, 35 KOs) against Ronny Landaeta (17-3, 11 KOs) has been postponed due to Covid-19 restrictions on the entry of foreigners into Canada.

Eye of the Tiger Management (EOTTM) promoter Camille Estephan had all documents in order including work visas and airline tickets, but the airlines blocked foreign fighters Landaeta and heavyweight Artem Oganesyan (who was to fight Simon Kean) from boarding their flights.

Estephan hopes to reschedule the event in May.

  • Seems with Prime Minister Trudeau’s tyrant policies of overkill restrictions against people entering Canada even for Canada’s own citizens, a lot of sporting events will be canceled besides boxing.

  • Question, are American Basketball, Hockey, & Baseball teams being equally restricted by Canada when they travel to Canada to play Canadian based teams or is this merely selective restriction imposed by a corrupt Canadian government with their FAKE concerns

    • Hockey has redesigned their divisions for this year so that all the Canadian teams are in the same division and only play each other. I live near the Detroit-Windsor, Ontario border and non necessary travel to Canada has been banned for quite some time. Canada has fewer cases than us and is very wary of allowing US citizens in, fearing that they would cause an increase in infections there.

  • Our leader Trudeau is a tyrant. We even have detention facilities for those who dare to fly out of the country.
