Lemieux “Very Interested” In Canelo Next

David Lemieux did more than win on Saturday night against Spike O’Sullivan, but his first round knockout victory may be the road to facing Canelo Alvarez.

Following both he and Alvarez winning their respective fights at the T-Mobile Center in Las Vegas, Lemieux made it clear that he is down to square off with Alvarez later this year.

“A fight with Canelo is something I’m extremely interested in,” Lemieux said. “I think it would be a great opportunity for me to show the world what I’ve got.”

“We have to analyze the situation first,” De La Hoya said of a potential December 15th return for Alvarez at Madison Square Garden. “We have to talk with [Alvarez’s] team. Obviously there’s a cut. We’ve gotta deal with the doctors, deal with the situation. But it’s a potential fight and he’s a worthy contender.”

“Big congratulations to Canelo, who fought an excellent fight tonight against Golovkin in the rematch,” Lemieux said.

“I thought it was a fair play that he won the fight. It was a great fight and also, [Canelo is] someone I’m extremely interested in. So hopefully [I’ll have] a fight against him in the near future. Hopefully the fans will demand it.”
