TORONTO, ON — Pierre Hubert Dibombe is ready to go global.
The light heavyweight contender has signed an agreement with top Canadian promotion outlet Lee Baxter Promotions, and is expected to make his debut under the banner on March 13 on an event broadcast by FightZone.
Dibombe (20-0-1, 10 KOs) won the French super middleweight title in 2016 and followed it up with a move up in weight to 175, where he won national gold in 2017. He would vacate the title, which would next be won by current light heavyweight contender and Olympic medalist Mathieu Bauderlique. In 2019, he won the EBU European Union light heavyweight title with a victory over then-champion Serhiy Demchenko. The 30-year old now has his sights set on a world ranking of his own, and the opportunity to test himself against international opposition.
"I'm very happy to be signing with Lee Baxter Promotions and to start working with Lee right away. Working with Lee will make a big impact on my career as I step up my level of opposition and go after world class fighters," said Dibombe.
