Montreal, Quebec (Canada) Tuesday August 15th 2017 – Kevin Genereux will not be part of the TKO40: DENOUEMENT fight card against Jesse Ronson on September 8th 2017 and was subsequently suspended indefinitely by the TKO organization as he has refused to meet with the TKO medical team for evaluation and treatment.
TKO president Stephane Patry is actively looking for a replacement to face Jesse Ronson in 3 weeks: “This is obviously very disappointing for Jesse, who’s been training real hard for this very important fight but it’s also very disappointing for us and our fans as everybody was looking forward to this fight. Genereux decided on his own to pull out from the fight and refused to see our medical team for treatments and evaluation. I met with Kevin, he has no serious injuries but in his own words – this whole camp has been a mess for him – and he doesn’t feel he can be ready for the fight. I wish we would’ve been notified of this before so that TKO and Jesse Ronson could have more time to adjust, it’s a question of respect.“
