If Lemieux could cure his stamina problem, he would be a very tough customer.Posted May 27, 2014 7:09 pm
I like some of the improvements David has made. He cuts the ring off more and follows less, but his lack of head movement still discourages me. If he’s gonna step up to the championship level, he’s gonna need more head movement so that he can get off some good counters. An A level boxer will keep him at a distance all night if he doesn’t get some head movement that’ll allow him to decrease that distance. If he doesn’t do this, he will always be stuck at the B level of the game.Posted May 27, 2014 10:31 am
That was a beat down. It reminds me of how Amir would beat Floydee. Nice work Lemieux. #KingKhan2014Posted May 27, 2014 10:12 am
Guerrero is a C fighter!!!Lemieux is a solid B at best!!Posted May 26, 2014 8:15 pm
Limieux’s a beast!Posted May 26, 2014 12:01 pm
@ fergus- i believe all sturm, geale, macklin handily beat Lemiuex- Soliman would be intrresting…Posted May 26, 2014 4:13 am
Yeah @Bighead: lemieux vs stevens would be a beauty as would bringing in, say Proksa.Posted May 26, 2014 4:10 am
We can’t tell a whole lot about Lemieux from this fight.. He was fighting a crappy opponent.. He is obviously stronger for his weight, faster, and a sharper puncher than Fonfara … who fought the main event.
Charlo was the beat fighter on the card… Then Lemieux… Then Stevenson.Posted May 25, 2014 11:52 pm
Lemieux always had power, we knew that from before. Before he had horrible footwork and would be hopping on the balls of his feet that whole time. He wasn’t bouncing as much last night but you can still tell when he is going to come in and a good boxer will time that. Great fight last night that should get him a good pay day vs Quillen. The winner of that will be prime for Martinez if he still wants to fight contenders, if not give the belt up to GGG.Posted May 25, 2014 6:17 pm
I think he’d stand a real shot against Quillin.Posted May 25, 2014 5:43 pm
Lemieux was a treat to watch, exciting from beginning till end, even against a sprinter runner like Guerrero.Posted May 25, 2014 5:42 pm
“This guy made peanuts last night and got clobbered as his compensation.”
S O …. W H Y … D O E S … H E … K E E P … D O I N G … I T ?????
Fernando Guerrero meet Mike Alvarado, Andre Berto, Michael Katsides … and other guys who have heart but keep taking big beatings every time they fight.
Maybe, time to think of alternative career options?Posted May 25, 2014 5:25 pm
well,I must tell you that with a puncher like lamieux,it will have no dull moments.if it were GGG,and he lands first he could send David to his dressing room fast.vice versa is not out of the question either.kid chocolate,or the winner of Quillans next fight may be in the works promoted by Showtime.Posted May 25, 2014 4:02 pm
Lemoore vs GGGPosted May 25, 2014 2:10 pm
i want to see david lemieux vs curtis stevens or tureano johnson or gillbert ramirez those will be good fights for david lemieuxPosted May 25, 2014 12:47 pm
Im aware that boxers chose the profession and that they are compensated for it. Youre stating the extremely obvious. Also, if seeing someone get beat up bothered me, i wouldnt be a fan of boxing. Thats also obvious. Change your moniker to love of stating the fing obvious. I dont have an issue with the sport, with some boxing ‘fan’ giving his opinions or insight, or with a boxer getting ktfo. I do have an issue w someone not knowing the differnce of whats acceptable critique, and bashing a fighter who has more balls than you ever will. After all, he didnt take a dive or quit as the main event of a ppv. This guy made peanuts last night and got clobbered as his compensation.Posted May 25, 2014 12:23 pm
Lemieux looked like the real deal a few years ago…then he looked like the next Jeff Lacy….time will tell if he can get back into the mix and do something big..Posted May 25, 2014 12:18 pm
El Chapo … This is boxing. These guys get paid to go in the ring and risk their lives.
If these guys don’t want to risk their lives — they should choose another profession.
If you don’t like the fact that boxers get beat-up … you should not be a fan of boxing and you should not be on a boxing website.
Why don’t you get off this website?Posted May 25, 2014 11:42 am
Lemieux’s 25 with only 2 losses against respectable opponents. He also showed in the post-fight interview that he’s still anxious to learn from each fight. That tells me Lemieux’s got a future as a top contender. However, I think he needs 3 or 4 more bouts against tough, experienced opponents like Geale, Sturm, Soliman, or Macklin before taking on GGG.Posted May 25, 2014 11:40 am
Love…you can continue to site your facts which i dont dispute or have confirmed, and your opinions on Guerrero. Your opinion of Guerrero that hes a doormat and that everyone knows he sucks are just that – opinions. Your opinion that Lemieux would be successful at 154 but not 160 is simply your opinion. Just like it is my opinion that youre a d-Ck in how you address a fighter who was clearly outgunned from the opening bell and who gave it his all,while being aware that the outcome of the fight would not be in his favor.Posted May 25, 2014 11:26 am
El Chapo … Actually you are confused.
I believe that Guerrero is no good — therefore the win by Lemeiux is no big deal.
I believe that Lemeiux is also not very good at 160 pounds — hence the loss to Rubio who is a big 6’1″ middleweight.
Lemeiux would be very, very good and possibly an elite champion at 154 pounds.
I don’t think Lemeiux could beat Alvarez — but it would be great fight.
However, I don’t think Lemeiux has much of a chance beating any of the top fighters at 160. Golovkin, Quillen, Martinez, Sturm, Macklin, Murray, Geale — all of these guys would probably beat Lemeiux.
But Lemeiux might do great against Lara, Molina, Martirosyn, and other guys at 154.
Feel free to respond to my thought El Chapo with — you know — actual thoughts about boxing. This is a boxing website. So, if you know something about boxing, I think it would be informative.
If you don’t know anything about boxing — well, then what the f*ck are you doing here you moron.Posted May 25, 2014 11:05 am
Love…sure you believe Guerrero is no good, and Lemieux is. However, youre also a d-bag who should consider getting a life outside of watching world class athletes fighting for your entertainment. Guerrero would pound your punk arse with one hand tied behind his back.Posted May 25, 2014 10:35 am
Guerrero definitely not that good. But it was a good TV win for Lemieux. Guerrero has always been chinny. And getting stopped by Brewer ment Guerrero wasn’t gonna do much in boxingPosted May 25, 2014 10:31 am
Do you know why you are “sick” of hearing that Guerrero is not a good fighter?
BECAUSE EVERYBODY, EVERYBODY, EVERYBODY THINKS GUERRERO IS NOT A GOOD FIGHTER.
So, of course, you are sick of hearing it.
Apparently you are the only moron who believes Guerrero is any good. So, of course, you are sick of hearing it. I don’t blame you. If you want to keep believing Guerrero is a good fighter you better go get some Pepso Bismol or something because you are going to keep getting “sick.”
Guerrero has been knocked 2-3 times in every single significant fight. Guerrero vs. Gabriel Rosado — Guerrero was knocked down. Guerrero vs. Ishe Smith — Guerrero goes down. Guerrero vs. Quillen — Guerrero goes down 3 times. Guerrero vs. Gatica — Guerrero goes down.
Guerrero got very, very, very close wins against Rosado, Smith, and Gatica and this could just be luck. If you change 1-2 rounds and Guerrero would have 8 losses.
So, Guerrero is basically a doormat for elite fighters at 160 pounds. He is no big deal. You are a fool.Posted May 25, 2014 10:28 am
I get sick of people downing Fernando Guerrero. He was a top rising contender when Brewer upset him in the same year Rubio upset Lemieux. His other KO lost was to titlist Quillin who wasn’t hardly as dominant over Guerrero as David was. Yes GGG would probably demolish Lemieux, but he’s still a contender level fighter and still developing at 25 to be written off.Posted May 25, 2014 10:14 am
Good news and bad news for Lemieux.
Good news … he looked good. He got the knockout. He looked sharp and threw short hard punches.
Bad news … who cares. Guerrero had been knocked down 10-12 times going into this fight. Michele Obama could knock down Guerrero.
If you look at Lemieux and where he is at the 160 pound level — honest boxing fans would say he is probably not a 160 pound fighter.
David Lemieux should go down to 154. At 160 pounds I don’t think Lemieux carries power against Golovkin, Quillen, Martinez, Sturm, Macklin, Murray, Geale, etc. etc.
At 154 pounds, I think Lemieux would not carry power with Alvarez — but would otherwise have great power against Lara, Molina, Angulo, Martirosyan, et. etc.
For example, Lemeiux vs. Trout would be a great fight with Lemeiux able to bring a power advantage against a slick boxer.
I just don’t think Lemeiux will do well against the elite fighters at 160.Posted May 25, 2014 10:00 am
