Vision drives undefeated Dierry Jean to brink of 1st world title shot

OTTAWA, Canada – International Boxing Federation (IBF) No. 1-ranked and mandatory light welterweight challenger, undefeated Dierry “Doggy Style” Jean (25-0, 17 KOs) credits a vivid dream for driving him into a boxing career. Years later, Jean finds himself on the brink of his first world title shot against IBF 140-pound champion Lamont “Havoc” Peterson (31-2-1, 16 KOs).

“In that dream,” Jean noted, “I was a very good fighter. Now, I’m following a new dream to be world champion. It’s my time”.

The 31-year-old Jean moved with his family to Canada from Haiti when he was 10. Disinterested in boxing until the experiencing the aforementioned vision when he was 18, Jean went on to become a Canadian National Champion as an amateur, and presently he’s unbeaten in 25 professional fights.
