He has been waiting for this moment for almost two years.
Beaten on November 24, 2018 by the Francilien Adel Hadjouis, the Pontois Hugo Legros (10 V, 1 D, 2 N) will have a new chance to win the belt of champion of France of the super-cocks against the defending champion, the Alençonnais Thomas Barbier (10 V, 20 D, 1 N).
The fight will take place on Saturday, October 31, at the La Salamandre gymnasium in Pont-Sainte-Maxence.
These are the conditions of the mutual agreement found a few days ago by the clubs of the two boxers, thus canceling the auctions scheduled for Wednesday.
In fact, an agreement had already been made in February, providing for the French championship on May 16, in Pont.
Health crisis requires, it had obviously been postponed to a later date.
"As the deadline for the fight, at the end of September, was going to be exceeded, a new auction date was scheduled and a new agreement had to be made," explains the president of the Olympic Boxing Club of Pont, Franck Dourlans.
But, apart from the date, it is the same as the previous one.
We discussed again and that did not pose a problem, Thomas Barbier agreed to come.
And we were keen to welcome the second attempt from Hugo, who arrived at the club in January.
The club is waiting to see the evolution of the health situation
However, the hypothesis of a closed session remains entirely possible.
“We have planned two budgets, admits Franck Dourlans, but that has no consequences on the boxers' purse.
We do not yet know what request we will make to the prefecture, with or without the public.
We are waiting to see how the situation evolves.
We will also be attentive to how the fight between Yoka and Duhaupas unfolds on Friday in Paris.
But in any case, it's still nicer for Hugo to be at home.
Hugo Legros, he has ants in his arms.
The 27-year-old super-rooster was scheduled to box at the Cap d'Agde gala organized by Brahim Asloum at the end of August, but it was canceled.
Ditto for his club's meeting last Saturday where he was supposed to face Georgian Edgari Sarkisiani.
"I am super happy that this is done in Pont, it's a relief, breathes the person concerned.
Even if there is no public, it is a gymnasium that I know well, and there will still be members of the club.
I hope to celebrate with them… ”
