Can Michel Gagnon Stop Bo Harris?
Can Michel Gagnon (7-1) put an end to David ‘Bo’ Harris’ run through the Canadian Bantamweight division?
According to several sources (update: confirmed by Ringside), Bo Harris (6-2-1) has verbally agreed to take Stephane Pelletier’s spot on the Ringside 12 card in Montreal on October 21. Harris has been a one man wrecking crew going 4 for 4 against Canadian 135ers over his career. In 2011 alone, Harris has progressively beaten better and better Canadians. First he quickly dispatched Chucky Mady at MFC 29 and then won decisions over Brent Franczuz and Adrian Wooley at MMA Live and Global Warriors, respectively.
Harris’ opponent will be Michel ‘Mitch’ Gagnon from Sudbury, Ontario, who slammed his way to the Ringside Featherweight title this past April. Gagnon was to challenge Stephane Pelletier for the Ringside Bantamweight title on October 21st in his first attempt at making 135. Gagnon has not lost in two and half years since a unanimous decision loss to Will Romero. Stopping Harris in his 135 debut would certainly place Canada’s 5th ranked Featherweight high up the Bantamweight ranks.
