BIZIER WALKS AWAY FROM WORLD TITLE SHOT

Press Release: Yesterday, the IBF issued a statement that welterweight Kevin Bizier was appointed as the new mandatory challenger to IBF champion Devon Alexander. Alexander was scheduled to face his mandatory challenger, Kell Brook, on May 18th in Atlantic City, but Brook was injured during training and had to withdraw.  To ensure Bizier's presence in Atlantic City to fight Alexander, Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaeffer also contacted the president of GYM, Yvon Michel, offering a very attractive proposition. However, Team Bizier - Kevin Bizier himself, promoter Yvon Michel, Marc Ramsay, and Remi Bizier -- met yesterday to analyze the entire situation. [Even though Bizier already has a fight scheduled for May 25th, and therefore should be in shape], the unanimous conclusion was to refuse the IBF and Golden Boy's proposal. According to Michel's statement, "The current circumstances do not allow Kevin Bizier sufficient training and preparation required to participate in a fight of this magnitude against the established IBF champion." Michel also stated, "We believe that Kevin Bizier has the talent to become World welterweight champion this year," Michel said. "We thank the IBF and Golden Boy for the opportunity offered but, unfortunately, we had to decline because Kevin would not have been able to offer a performance, given the current context, at the height of his talent. This is only a postponement." Bizier's next fight will take place May 25th, as planned, on the Jean Pascal-Lucien Bute super event in Montreal.
