Welterweight Antonin Decarie returned to the ring on Friday night in Gatineau, Quebec, beating veteran Pablo Munguia on Eye of the Tiger Management's "Fight Night Series."
Decarie (29-2, 9 KO) won a 10-round decision on scores of 98-92, 97-93, and 96-94, suffering a cut in the fifth round from an unintentional headbutt.
"Antonin fought a tough, awkward, physically strong opponent who kept coming forward," said Camille Estephan, President of Eye of the Tiger Management.
Decarie, 31, has now won three straight after a decision loss to Luis Abregu in April 2013 in Argentina, on the Martinez-Murray card. The level of opposition hasn't been great since then, but it's been about rebuilding Decarie and hopefully getting him back into a title race.
"After his loss to Abregu there were some things missing, so we wanted Antonin to be exposed to a fighter like Munguia," Estephan said. "This was a perfect fight for him and he passed the test for his third win in a row. He had to deal with a cut, too. He should be moving up in the ratings and is on the right path towards a world title fight."
