Sports Quebec boxing promoter faces hearing after Hells Angels seen at bout
Undercover agent told to guard 100 kilos of cocaine in Griffintown apartment
A picture is worth a thousand words but it is worth much more to police when it is a photograph of a hundred kilos of cocaine. A man who was working undercover for police in 2012 testified Thursday at the Gouin courthouse in northern Montreal about how police across Quebec suddenly took a keen interest in his work when he sent his handler photographs of a shipment of 100 kilograms of cocaine that he was left in charge of for a network that was distributing the drug across the province.
MONTREAL — A well-known Quebec boxing promoter is defending himself before a tribunal against accusations stemming from two of his boxing cards, including claims he fixed a bout and hosted members of criminal biker gangs in reserved ringside seats.
A hearing for Groupe Yvon Michel began today in Montreal before an administrative tribunal of the provincial authority that oversees combat sports.
The authority's representative, Mario Lacroix, told the tribunal of several irregularities that he said occurred during two 2019 boxing events promoted jointly by Michel's company and New Era Fighting.
Lacroix says members of the Hells Angels biker gang were seen in ringside seats reserved for the promoters during a Sept. 20 bout at Montreal's Centre Pierre-Charbonneau.
He also says he thinks a charity bout between strongman Hugo Girard and mixed martial artist Patrick Cote was fixed and did not respect provincial regulations.
Michel has denied all the allegations against his company and is scheduled to address the tribunal Wednesday.

This is just the latest chapter in a long and complicated legal saga that has played out in courtrooms in Halifax and Ottawa. Kelsie shot and killed Sean Simmons in the lobby of an apartment building in north-end Dartmouth, N.S., on Oct. 3, 2000. Kelsie was one of four men who took part in the killing.
