Another change for the Alcine-Simms fight.
For the third time already, I have to talk about another change for the WBA super-middleweight championship bout between Joachim Alcine from Montreal (28-0-0) and Travis Simms (25-0-0).
This time, the announcement says that the fight will take place on July 7th at the Bridgeport Harbour Yard arena in Connecticut.
The negociations between Don King and GYM (Groupe Yvon Michel) are going on since months already. Don King was initially asking for the rights on the next Alcine fights should he win the title. A demand that was denied by GYM. There was also negociations on the location of the fight. GYM wanted to present the fight in Montreal as Don King was pulling the blanket to present it in the US. Then the purse bid went to the very limit before being cancelled.
I have been posting about this championship bout twice already. Once on January 31st 2007 then another time on march 7th 2007. Let's hope that no other changes will be made and the fight will finally take place at the scheduled date. Alcine must be itching to finally step in the ring with Simms.
