Leblond gets second bite of Contender Series cherry

Team Canada’s Dave Leblond, who already has a loss in the Best of the Best Wray and Nephew White Overproof Rum Contender Boxing Series, will return to the ring against debutant Nico Yeyo at the Chinese Benevolent Association auditorium tonight.

The programme opens at 8:30 pm with an amateur card with Damion Williams of Jamaica fighting Joshua Frazer from Canada in the welterweight division, and Jonathan Hanson of Jamaica going up against Jake Daoust from Canada in the middleweight division.

The main event is scheduled for approximately 9:45 pm.

Leblond had his appeal in the split-decision loss to Team Jamaica Tsetsi Davis weeks ago turned down, but will take the place of Ryan Wagner after the Team Canada number-three seed failed his medical to fight Yeyo.

There was an outpouring of support for the Canadian in his fight against Davis, which many thought he had won. His return to the contest, if good enough, could see Leblond possibly facing Davis later in the competition in a rematch.
