Eric Lucas’s Biography :

Éric Lucas, speaker, marked Quebec’s boxing history. He was born in Montreal, on May 29, 1971; he competed against powerful professional boxers and became the World Super Middleweight Champion.

He collected 65 wins and 19 losses as an amateur boxer, and then began his professional career on December 17, 1991 in Jonquière, where he won.
