Simon Kean - IBO Intercontinental Champion

 
Simon Kean

A Summation By TVA Sports Of Simon Kean's Last Fight In Defense Of His IBO Intercontinental Title.
 
Quebec heavyweight Simon Kean won by KO. in the eighth round against the American Alexis Santos, Saturday night, at the Gervais Auto Center in Shawinigan. The Quebecois retains his intercontinental heavyweight belt of the IBO.
 
The main event was presented live to TVA Sports and TVASports.ca.
 
Kean (13-0-0, 12 k.-o.), who fought close to home in front of his home crowd, had before him the most formidable opponent of his professional career so far.
 
But the 29-year-old slugger, who was taller than his American opponent by a few inches, made good use of this advantage to keep him at bay for most of the fight. Santos (18-3-0, 15 k.-o.) tried hard to reach the Quebecois with the body, because that was his best strategy, but his tests were more or less ineffective throughout the confrontation. The "Grizzly" has never really been in trouble.
 
Asked by his coach Jimmy Boisvert to launch his right with more authority before the sixth round, Kean finally hit the target with confidence during this engagement, sending Santos to the canvas twice in the last minute of action. The tough American, however, was able to continue the fight, even showing particular effort in the seventh round.
 
The eighth and final round, which was new for the Quebec fighter previously unaccustomed to long fights. With just over a minute to go, Kean launched a solid right that hit Santos on the chin. Shaken, Santos wavered. Kean then rushed him and the American surrendered, slowly falling to the canvas to not get up again.
 
"I wanted to manage my energy and I slowed down until I lost a round (the seventh). But Jimmy shook me up in the corner, "said Kean after the fight, confirming that Santos had been his toughest opponent since his time with the professionals.
 
Definitively the most tough. Even if we do not seem to like each other, he has a lot of heart and I respect him for coming to fight with me, "said the Quebecois about his rival, adding that he still hoped to obtain a fight against Canadian Adam Braidwood in the near future.
