By Richard Cloutier

At the official weigh-in held at the NRJ Studio in Montreal for tomorrow's Fast and Furious card at the Bell Centre, all of the boxers managed to comply with the weight limits of their respective categories. Regarding the main event, David Lemieux came in at 159 lb, 10 ounces, while Marco Antonio Rubio was 159 lb, 15 oz. He was too heavy by 7oz at his first try with the weight and needed two hours to comply with the limit of 160-pounds. The fight is a WBC middleweight eliminator.

Promoter Yvon Michel Group is delighted with the 5,000 expected spectators for the final event of the first season of this series, which has offered many exciting, strong fights.

"We are very pleased with the results generated by this series of shows," said Michel. "We have achieved our goals. In the case of David Lemieux, he will fight in mandatory eliminator.  Antonin Decarie, we took him to the desired level and his name is now circulating around the world to obtain big fights. Obviously, we'll come back next year with the same formula."
