Former Canadian Heavyweight Champion Patrice L’Heureux Dies at 46

By Robert Brizel, Head Real Combat Media Boxing Correspondent

Montreal, Canada (October 11th, 2018)–  The colorful former Canadian Heavyweight champion and Canadian pro football player Patrice L’Heureux has died at age 46.




L’Heureux turned pro in 2000 after participating in the Pan American Games as an amateur in 1999. From 2000 to 2010 L’Heureux compiled a professional boxing record of 24 wins, four losses and one draw, with 13 knockouts. He went 14-0-1 in his first 14 bouts. He stopped Steve MacKay in the ninth round in Montreal in November 2004 to win the Canadian heavyweight title, and figured into six Canadian title bouts, the last being an eight round split decision win over Stefane Tessier in May 2009 for the CQB version of the Canadian Heavyweight title.

L’Heureux also played Canadian Pro Football for the Diablos of Trois-Rivieres in Quebec. In his most important pro bout, L’Heureux was knocked out by the then 11-0 future WBA World Heavyweight champion Alexander Povetkin in May 2007 in the second round in Bamberg, Germany.
