Nervousness has fallen for Kim Clavel: the Quebecer will play the second professional fight of her career in boxing on February 10 in Shawinigan against Jessica Guerrero.
"I do not know what to expect," said Eye of the Tiger Management (EOTTM) on Wednesday at TVA Sports. I can not wait to get into the ring, I can not wait.
"I have reduced my work hours a little to increase my training hours and manage it to perfection."
Clavel should have no problem putting on weight for the duel with his Mexican opponent.
"I have a pretty healthy lifestyle. I never stand too high above my weight because I do not want to have to dehydrate. 108 lbs, for me it's easy to reach. "
A KO, this time?
On the occasion of his first professional fight, last December under the banner of EOTTM, Clavel scored a unanimous decision victory over Mexican Yoseline Martinez Jose. Will the Québécoise seek the K.-O. against Guerrero?
"I do not know her very well," she warned. I know she beat the opponent I beat at the boxing gala last December 16th. She has three victories against two defeats; his two victories were signed by KO. She has to hit hard enough, but it's going to be me who's going to hit her hard. I want to hurt her. "
As we know, Clavel leads the double life of boxer and nurse. She begins to be recognized as part of her job! Some will see the consequence of the growth of women's boxing in the province.
"I think we are in a good era, there are more and more women in boxing in the United States and Quebec. Names are starting to come out. We leave the head of the water. The women's boxing fights, it comes very beautiful to watch.
"Quietly, people ask me for autographs. We start to be recognized. At the hospital, I'm asked, "Are you the boxing nurse?"
In Shawinigan, Clavel will fight in the sub-card of the gala that will be paid by Simon Kean of Trois-Rivières, who will defend his intercontinental belt of the International Boxing Organization (IBO). The four main bouts of the card will be presented live on TVA Sports.
