Eleider « Storm » Alvarez was the « first overall draft pick » of Groupe Yvon Michel (GYM) at the Beijing Olympic games.

 

The Colombian boxer, now living in Montreal, amazed scouts at the 2007 Pan-American Games, knocking out Cuban Yusiel Napoles in the championship final.

From that moment on, GYM vice president Bernard Barré dedicated himself to convincing Alvarez to choose Quebec as his adopted home.

After an escapade that only a script from a James Bond movie could match, Alvarez and his compatriot, Oscar “Kaboom “ Rivas, secretly took the road to Montreal by plan to sign a professional contract with GYM.

Technically gifted with a major league jab, quick reflexes and crisp power, the Marc Ramsay-trained fighter won a North American title in only his seventh professional fight.

Since then he has captured a second North American title, dominating veteran Edison “Pantera” Miranda by unanimous decision in a battle between Colombian power punchers.

In his first outing outside Quebec as a pro, Alvarez stormed the Casino of Monte Carlo, Monaco, where he crushed undefeated South African prospect Ryno Liebenberg in the seventh round to capture the WBC Silver title.

June 12, 2015 in Chicago, in a card presented by Premier Boxing Champions, Alvarez destroyed Ukrainian opponent Anatoliy Dudchenko in the second round with a vicious uppercut.

‘‘Storm’’ faced a stiff test August 15, 2015 at the Bell Centre, against undefeated Paraguayan slugger Isidro Ranoni Prieto. After a grueling war, the Montrealer saw the judges giving him a unanimous decision win.

November 28, 2015, at the Vidéotron Centre of Québec City, he won a majority decision over top challenger Isaac Chilemba of Malawi in an important WBC light heavyweight elimination bout.

In his last outing, July 29 at the Vidéotron Centre, Alvarez dominated solid southpaw Robert Berridge from New Zealand to win a clear unanimous decision.

Well established in the world rankings, it is now only a matter of time before Eleider Alvarez storms his way from a top challenger to a world champion.
