BY foxsports • December 13, 2009

Former junior middleweight champion Joachim Alcine moved one step closer to a shot at a second world title with a hard-fought unanimous decision over France's Christophe Canclaux on Saturday night.

Alcine was awarded the win with scores of 115-113, 117-110 and 117-110.

Alcine, a native of Laval, Quebec, improved to 32-1 with 19 knockouts since losing his WBA title to Daniel Santos in July 2008 by way of a sixth round knockout.

Canclaux (40-3, 25 KOs) was rated in the top 10 going into the fight by three of the major sanctioning bodies. Alcine is expected to be ranked third by the WBC when the next ratings are published.
