Lemieux Flaunts Looks And Skills Against O’Sullivan
One of the featured fights on the undercard for the September 15th rematch between Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez, is the middleweight showdown between David Lemieux and Gary “Spike” O’Sullivan.
As the two prepare for their showdown at the T-Mobile Arena, former IBF middleweight champion Lemieux is looking to win his second fight of 2018, losing two of his last seven fights, the most recent loss to WBO champion Billy Joe Saunders in December.
“We’re studying Gary O’Sullivan very closely throughout my camp,” Lemieux said to Yahoo Sports.
“We’re not worried. We’re very confident, my team and I, in what we’ll bring to the table against Gary. I’m stronger, I’m better looking and I’m the better fighter.”
While Billy Joe Saunders is campaigning to fight the winner of the Golovkin-Alvarez fight, the winner of this undercard clash may draw the winner of the main event.
Lemieux was trounced when he faced Golovkin a few years ago, but the Canadian feels like if he had a second chance, the odds would be in his favor.
“The interesting thing would that after all these years that have passed, I’m reaching my peak now. Back when I fought Golovkin, he was at his peak. The difference in the rematch would be David Lemieux at his peak and knowing what he’d be facing against Golovkin,” Lemieux said.
