A rematch between former TKO heavyweight champion Icho Larenas and popular hockey enforcer Steve Bosse may take place at TKO 32: Ultimatum on February 28th according to TKO president Stephane Patry.

Patry indicated the possibility of the fight to The Fight Network earlier this week.

Larenas and Bosse fought for the first time at TKO 31: Young Guns last month where Larenas ended up stopping Bosse with strikes in the third round.

After the fight, Patry stated that Larenas may have verbally submitted after receiving an unintentional poke in the eye during the second round. Larenas reportedly told referee Yves Lavigne that he was unable to see and Lavigne ended up giving Larenas a few minutes to recover.

Under the rules of the Quebec Athletic Commission, the fight should have been stopped once Larenas said he was experiencing vision problems. The bout was put under review by the Quebec Athletic Commission but we haven’t been able to find out any information pertaining to an official decision.

Bosse is currently recovering from a hand injury that will keep him out of action for 2-3 weeks.
