Dierry Jean Targets Pier Olivier Cote, Wants Showdown
by Richard Cloutier
BoxingScene.com spoke with Camille Estephan, who heads the Eye of the Tiger Management firm, which oversees the interests of many fighters, including those of heavyweight Berman Stiverne. Two weeks ago, Pier-Olivier Cote (18-0) returned to action at the Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec, and stopped Jorge Teron in the second round of a junior welterweight clash. Estephan is confident that his boxer, Dierry Jean (20-0), would do well against Cote, and they are ready to make the fight happen.
"I want to see Dierry fight against Cote. We are very confident in the ability of Dierry to produce a very good fight against this kind of opponent. I think a duel between Pier-Olivier Cote and Dierry Jean would arouse a lot of interest among the fans in Quebec City. Dierry Jean is associated with GYM, while Pier-Olivier is under contract with InterBox. I think it could be a great rivalry."
