“It’s unique,” said Michel. He is the athlete who has made the greatest impact outside of boxing.
“At GYM, we had boxers like Jean Pascal, Adonis Stevenson and Eleider Alvarez who made their marks on the international scene. They shone in world championship fights.
“On the other hand, stories like Kim’s are a first.”
Michel is enthusiastic and we can understand that. His protege now has significant marketing value outside of boxing. He will have to find a way to monetize this popularity in Clavel’s sports career.
It’s already started since she signed a contract with Top Rank. After the fight against Natalie Gonzalez, the American promoter got his hands on the rights of the next two duels of the Quebecer. We can bet that Bob Arum’s gang will put them to good use.

Before the end of the year ?
Clavel would like to return to the ring before the end of the year. Its promoter has the same goal, but he has lifted the veil on the current situation.
“Top Rank is waiting to know the number of dates they will have by the end of the year on ESPN,” explained Michel. They are notably in the process of determining the moment of the third duel between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury.
“At first it must have been December 19th. Now, there is talk of the fight being postponed to 2021 to satisfy everyone. “
Thereafter, all the pieces of the puzzle will fall into place.
“Initially, Oscar Rivas was to be part of the Wilder-Fury III submap. The plans have changed and he could now make a final and Kim would be on the card too.
“If that doesn’t work, it could also be that Kim is fighting at a gala in Mexico. This is plan B. ”
