World champion, Kim Clavel on her cloud

World champion, Kim Clavel on her cloud


Quebec boxer Kim Clavel saw the culmination of a lifetime's work Friday night when she secured the WBC light flyweight title following her win over Yesenia Gomez at the Casino de Montreal. 

“The feeling of accomplishment, it's great, there are so many hours of work behind it”, explained the friendly champion, Monday, to “Salut, Bonjour!”. 

” Now, I'm going to take advantage of a great week to be on my cloud,” she said… even if she was already back in the gym on Sunday!

  • Listen to Kim Clavel in an interview with Mathieu Boulay on Yasmine Abdelfadel's show on QUB radio :

“It's like a racehorse, if you train him for eight weeks, after that you can't leave him in his box!”, she illustrated.

Once down from her cloud, she will be preparing for her next challenge, when she will likely have to defend her title unless a unification fight becomes possible.

“I love challenges, so I'm waiting for my next challenge and if there is one to give it to me, it is (her promoter) Yvon Michel”, she summarized.

The champion then became emotional for a brief moment when came the time to talk about his family.

“My father, my mother, I love them so much, they are my family and they have supported me for all s those years,” she explained.
