WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders will be hosting a special Cinq a Sept in downtown Montreal to greet media and fans alike ahead of his December 16 HBO clash against David Lemieux.
The event will be held at the Irish Embassy at 1234 Bishop St., which will be renamed and rebranded the Gypsy Embassy for fight week. Saunders is a proud Traveller, one of two world champion Travellers in modern day boxing, alongside lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.
Saunders and his trainer Dominic Ingle will be joined at the event by former IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook, who recently announced his first bout at 154 pounds against Sergey Rabchenko on March 3. In addition, top-rated featherweight Kid Galahad will be in attendance.
Joining the UK contingent will be Quebec-based prospects from the Lee Baxter Promotions stable, Canadian middleweight champion Patrice Volny and Kurdish-Canadian star Mazlum Akdeniz.
Food and drinks will be provided for working media in attendance.
