MONTREAL, Tuesday, March 5, 2024 — Today marked an electrifying moment as the final press conference for Thursday’s gala at the renowned Casino de Montréal set the stage for an intense showdown between Montreal’s own Steven Butler and Toronto’s Steve Rolls. The event promises to be a spectacle, featuring top-tier boxing matchups, including reigning IBO super-middleweight world champion Osleys Iglesias making his Quebec debut against the seasoned Marcelo Coceres. Additionally, Vanessa Lepage-Joanisse will be stepping back into the world championship arena to vie for the vacant WBC heavyweight title against Abril Argentina Vidal, both determined to etch their names in boxing history in la belle province.

Steve Rolls echoed a sentiment of resilience, declaring, “This is who I am, I don’t back down from a challenge,” showcasing his readiness to face whatever comes his way.

Marcelo Coceres acknowledged his opponent’s skill but emphasized his own experience, saying, “He’s a great rival, but he has little experience, for me it’s just another war,” underscoring his confidence in his ability to navigate the ring.

Osleys Iglesias, making his Quebec debut, emphasized his readiness for battle, stating, “I may not have much experience in the pros, but I have a huge amateur background and I’m ready for war,” highlighting his extensive preparation for the upcoming matchup.
