Former amateur standout Marie-Eve DiCaire has inked a promotional pact with Groupe Yvon Michel (GYM). The unbeaten prospect signed on Tuesday, the move coinciding with International Women’s Day.

"I am very happy because it allows me to just focus on my performance without having to worry about the rest of my career,” Dicaire (2-0, 0KOs) said in a statement released through the GYM press office. “I know GYM will be able to plan everything because they will have my interests at heart."

Before becoming a boxer, the 29-year-old Quebec native was a standout karate practitioner, winning a Canadian championship at 11 and a world championship at 18.


Dicaire had 50 amateur fights, including her winning Quebec and Canadian championships in 2013 and being named Athlete of the Year in her home province.

Her professional debut came last November, winning a unanimous decision over Christina Barry, repeating the feat this past January. The rematch took place at the Montreal Casino on a show promoted by GYM, with the very same venue hosting her formal debut under the company’s promotional banner on March 17, when she faces Mexico’s Martha Patricia Lara (9-4, 6KOs).

“We are very pleased to welcome Marie-Eve within our family and we will do everything possible for it to be accomplished,” said GYM president Yvon Michel. “She will also be a great ambassador for our organization and for sport in general.”
