GYM is proud to have spectacular Cameroonian Olympian Wilfred « Free Boy » Seyi in its ranks.

Dieudonné Wilfried Seyi Ntsengue of his full name, is the son of Cameroonian professional boxer Rim Seyi. In 2016, he was the flag bearer of the Cameroonian delegation to the Olympic Games in Rio, where he defeated the Colombian Jorge Luis Vivas as a curtain raiser before lowering the flag in front of the Egyptian Hossam Bakr Abdin, in the eighth round of a tournament final.

He also won gold at the African Games in 2015, the African Olympic Qualifiers in 2016 and the African Championship in 2017, in addition to bringing back bronze at the 2015 World Military Championship in South Korea.

In his last major amateur competition, he won silver at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia, where he was all the rage on YouTube with his style. In this tournament, he took turns defeating Marvin Anthony of Saint Lucia, Musah Raman Lawson of Ghana, Ryan Scaife of New Zealand and John Docherty of Scotland, before losing in the final to Indian Vikas Krishan.

Seyi made his professional debut on June 10, 2016 in Cameroon, where he defeated Gabonese Chanel Tessa Tonda by unanimous decision in four rounds, before disputing his first fight in Quebec on December 1st at the Videotron Centre in Quebec, where he stopped Mexican Fernando Galvan in the third assault.

Since then, he’s had a spectacular knockout in just 31 seconds over Marco Antonio Morales and won a unanimous decision over unbeaten tough guy Ismael Molina Moreno at the Cabaret du Casino de Montreal.

Four more victories led him to his first minor championship against unbeaten boxer Devin Tomko who could not finish the fight (TKO8).

Qualified for the Tokyo Olympics this summer, he added a ninth consecutive victory to his professional career last February.

Already at ease in Quebec and speaking French, coach Stephan Larouche’s protégé has everything it takes to become a boxing superstar.
