Boxing: Jo Jo Dan to fight against Steve Forbes in Montreal

Romanian boxer Dan Ion Ionut (aka Jo Jo Dan) will box against America’s Steve Forbes on Saturday at 4 AM (Romanian time) in Montreal, the bout counting for the welter category (66.7 kilograms). The bout will have 10 rounds and will be broadcast live by TVR 1, Agerpres informs. If he wins, Jo Jo Dan could end up fighting again for a world title just as he did last year against Turkey’s Selcuk Aydin. The bout will take place at Montreal’s “Bell Centre” Arena, the fiefdom of Interbox, the club for which Jo Jo Dan boxes alongside fellow nationals Lucian Bute and Adrian Diaconu. Jo Jo Dan (29) has 27 wins (15 KOs) and one defeat. Stephen Phelipe Forbes (33) has played 43 professional bouts, totaling 35 wins (11 KOs) and 8 defeats (none by KO).
