Two Vierzonnais, Logan Berck and Lilian Bedin, will face, respectively, Kadir Diop (St-Denis) at 60-63.5kg and Adem Saigaa (Montluçon) at 66-70kg, in a party organized on Saturday evening at Jimmy Agard’s dojo by BCV .
Lillian Beden will have the honor of kicking off the evening by entering the ring first. It will also be the first amateur fight with the youngster (15 years old), who pushed the doors of Grands Moulins gymnasium in September 2021. After trying his hand at basketball, soccer and table tennis, Lillian has found her sport. The boy recalls, “But I still play the Portuguese in Mihon. What I like about boxing is the atmosphere in the gym. The trainers are nice. And I love the sport. My first fight? I can feel it. I don’t feel any special pressure.”
Logan Burke (18 years old), who will enter the ring between the first and second professional fight, has more experience. “Logan, I have been working with him for several seasons,” notes his coach Jerome Lasnier. This will be his eleventh fight, but the first without a helmet in 3×3. He falls against a Parisian guy. I hope there will be a victory in the end.
“It pleases you to be able to make such an appointment”
For four years in BCV, Logan has not yet managed to achieve a championship. “I will not hide from you that there is a little tension in the idea of \u200b\u200bfighting without a helmet. I have not changed my preparations yet,” says the boy, who was chosen by the Val-de-Loire Center committee to cross the Atlantic and go to face Guyana next week.
“It’s a great opportunity and a great experience for Logan,” BCV President Emmanuel Alcon, who works hard with the club’s volunteers, rejoices to throw the party. “Organizing an event like this is complicated. We’ve had several setbacks, including with professionals. It’s frustrating. You should be excited. But it’s a relief to be able to make such an appointment. We hope the audience is there.”
