Victoria’s 6’4” 250-pound heavyweight boxer, Adam Braidwood, will be fighting again on March 31st in Montreal at the Casino Montrèal.
The 11-1 World Boxing Union champ will be putting his record to the test against a yet-to-be-announced opponent.
It is well known that he has had an ongoing social media joust with Trois-Rivières fighter Simon Kean.
Kean owns a record of 13-0. All but one of the fights ended in a knockout (KO) or technical knockout (TKO). Kean was a perfect 5-0 during 2017. The 6’5” 29-year-old is the International Boxing Organization Intercontinental champion.
The 245-pound Kean knocked out Alexis Santos on February 10 during the eighth round and should be ready to go.
As for Braidwood, he has won eight consecutive fights by TKO or KO. He was also perfect in 2017 at 5-0.
Thursday, February 21, Eye of the Tiger Management, who represents Kean, will hold a press conference to announce who Braidwood will be fighting.
Asked if he will be fighting Kean, Braidwood told Victoria Sports News, “No, it will be another guy, Kean will be after, sometime.”
Braidwood is a former Edmonton Eskimo of the Canadian Football League. He grew up in Greater Vancouver and now calls Victoria home. He is coached by Rich LeStage.
Asked about his current fitness he said, “I am always in shape.”
The press conference will take place Thursday at 11:00 am EST. Speculation about his opponent suggests Mario Heredia from Mexico City, who owns a record of 14-6 with 12 KO’s.
Kean will have to wait.
