At the Emera Centre Stadium in Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada, Three Lions Promotions hosted an electrifying event headlined by a WBC cruiserweight eliminator. In the spotlight was Ryan “The Bruiser” Rozicki, boasting a record of 20-1 with 19 KOs, squaring off against Olanrewaju “God’s Power” Durodola, who entered the ring with 43 wins and 10 losses, 40 of those victories by knockout. Rozicki, ranked #1 by the WBC, made a stunning statement, securing a first-round TKO victory over Durodola, a seasoned world title challenger, in just 1 minute and 47 seconds. This emphatic win positions Rozicki as the official mandatory challenger to newly crowned WBC cruiserweight world champion Noel Mikaelyan.

Riding high on his victory, Rozicki shared in the post-fight euphoria, “It was an honor to share the ring with Durodola, but it’s my time now, and Noel is next. I’m setting my sights on unifying the belts and becoming the face of the cruiserweight division.” He went on to express his reverence for the legendary Jack Dempsey, calling him his boxing god and a source of inspiration in his quest for world championship glory.

Daniel Otter, Rozicki’s promoter, hinted at a potential blockbuster fight date. “We’ve been in discussions with Don King Promotions about this showdown with Mikaelyan. A Fourth of July weekend bout would be ideal, echoing the historic beatdowns and memorable fights of Rozicki’s idol, Jack Dempsey. It’s a significant weekend in U.S. sports, and it just might make perfect sense,” Otter revealed.

The event also featured a co-feature bout where Canadian Super Middleweight Champion John Michael Bianco outclassed Bryam Galvez in a six-round unanimous decision. Bianco dominated throughout, with all three judges scoring the fight 56-50 in his favor, showcasing his boxing mastery.

In the undercard action, super featherweight Pedro Bernal notched his twelfth victory, taking down Mario Victorino Vera with a knockout in the third round. In the middleweight division, Canadian fighters Brett Beaton and Kenny Chery went toe-to-toe for eight rounds, with Beaton securing a dramatic late KO in the final round. The female super welterweight clash saw Mexico’s Diana Tapia triumph over Canadian Jennifer Williams in a six-round fight, earning a well-deserved unanimous decision. Kicking off the event, former two-time Algerian Olympian Reda Benbaziz won a unanimous decision in a rematch against Mexico’s Ramiro Garcia Lopez, setting right their previous no-contest fight due to an accidental head-butt.
