Alcine-Simms fight almost official.
Yesterday at 18h00 after long negociations between GYM (Groupe Yvon Michel) and Don King have been concluded and the WBA title fight between Montreal's own Joachim Alcine and american Travis Simms will take place. Rumors say that the fight could take place right here in Montreal in next april. The purse bid scheduled for next February 2nd has been suspended.
The reason why the negociations have taken so long was because Don King wanted the rights to the next Alcine fights if he was to defeat Travis Simms but Groupe Yvon Michel rejected that option.
