Bute-Mendy: Renan St-Juste, Pier-Olivier Cote Added

Montreal, Friday - EuroPlus Computers S.R.L., in collaboration with InterBox, have finalized the opponents for WBO #2 rated Super Middleweight contender Renan St-Juste and fellow Quebecker Pier-Olivier Cote.  Both InterBox protégés will lace up the gloves in Bucharest, Romania on the undercard of the July 9th Lucian Bute vs. Jean-Paul Mendy IBF World Super Middleweight title bout.

Cote vs Navarette

Up and coming 140-pound prospect Pier-Olivier Côté (16-0-0 11 KO) will be looking to continue his climb up the Division ladder as he prepares to make a name for himself in Romania, 2 short months after impressing promoters and television executives alike at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on the Pacquiao/Mosley undercard.  The undefeated Cote will be facing Pedro Navarette (25-11-3, 14 KO), a rugged and durable Mexican boxer who was only KO’d once in his long professional career.  Navarette’s last bout was on InterBox’s March 19th Bute vs. Magee Bell Centre card, where Navarette lost a split decision to Romanian undefeated prospect Viorel Simion (13-0-0, 5 KO).

Navarette is a good test for me at this stage of my career.  This will be the third time I fight outside Quebec and I am looking at this as another opportunity to expand my fan base and gather more experience.  July 9th will be a Historic day for InterBox and for Lucian, and I am extremely happy to be a part of this Event” states Pier-Olivier Cote.

St-Juste vs Zepeda

WBO #2 Super Middleweight contender Renan St-Juste (22-2-1 15 KO) has been busy helping Lucian prepare for Jean-Paul Mendy, and will also box on the undercard.  He will face Jaudiel Zepeda (12-4-1, 9 KO) in a Super-Middleweight bout scheduled for 8-10 rounds.  “I am very grateful to not only help the best 168 pounder in the World prepare for his title defense, but also to return to the ring in Lucian’s Country.  All I need is a good victory in Romania and I will be well on my way to a significant fight this Fall” states Renan St-Juste.

Simion vs Talape

Undefeated 126-pound Romanian prospect Viorel Simion (13-0-0, 5 KO) will also participate in this history-making boxing Card. Simion will dispute the most significant bout in his young career as he takes on WBC International 126 lb champion and #15 rated Jun Talape (20-7-1, 8 KO) from the Philippines.
