Adviser Greg Leon, during a recent interview on BoxingScene.com, stated that there were talks for a potential a bout between former light heavyweight world champions Zsolt Erdei (33-0-0) and Jean Pascal (26-2-1). Leon also said that he would love to see a clash between former WBA champion Joachim Alcine (32-2-0) and aspiring contender Antonin Decarie (25-0-1) as the support to Pascal-Erdei.
Montreal promoter Yvon Michel reacted strongly to the interview. Michel told BoxingScene.com that he had never been approached about either fight.
"This is not imagination, but storytelling! I have nothing against the idea, but it is a misrepresentation to say that there are negotiations for Erdei vs. Pascal or Decarie vs. Alcine," Michel said.
