Joachim Alcine is a Canadian professional boxer of Haitian descent. Born March 26, 1976 in Gonaives, Haiti, Alcine was the WBA Light Middleweight champion up until July 11, 2008 when he was succeeded by Daniel Santos in the match held in the Uniprix Stadium, Montreal, Quebec. He was also a former Canadian Junior Middleweight champion.

Alcine turned pro in 2001 and has since become a popular boxer in Quebec, especially since the majority of his fights were held in Canada. His first major win was against Jose Hilton Dos Santos for the WBA Federation Light Middleweight title, which was held on April 24, 2004. A few months later, on October 9, 2004 he was up against Fernando Hernandez for the NABA Light Middleweight Title, which he won after a knock out during the 5th round. He defeated Elio Ortiz on May 28, 2005, grabbing the WBC International Light Middleweight title.

A few years later, Alcine became the WBA Light Middleweight champion after defeating American boxer Travis ‘Tremendous’ Simms in a match which ended in a unanimous decision for the Canadian boxer. The match, which was held in the Arena at Harbor Yard in Bridgeport, Connecticut, was only one of the few matches which took place out of Alcine’s home country. A few months after this match, Alcine successfully defended his title by TKO in the 12th round in a fight against Panamian boxer Alfonso Mosquera, which was held at the Bell Centre in Quebec.

Out of a total of 31 matches, Alcine has won an impressive 30, with 19 fights by KO. His most recent loss to Daniel Santos in June ended his one-year reign as the WBA Light Middleweight Champion, a defeat which led to a significant drop in the boxer’s rankings.
