    Lemieux looks to be a talented, well trained prospect. He has good defense and doesn't get hit with many shots. He throws good combinations. It seems from these clips that his favorite punch is the overhand right which he delivers like a major league fastball!

    I hope his handlers gradually pit him against better competition so that he can develop into a champion.

    Lemieux fights on the Diaconu-Pascal undercard. His opponent will be Martin Avila 9-5(3).

    The Diaconu-Pascal card will be televised on Versus this Friday. Hopefully we'll get to see Lemieux in action.Edited by: Blue Devils

    David improved to 17-0(17) with a 5th round stoppage of Bladimir Hernandez. It was the first time in his career he had to go past 4.

    I've seen him on ESPN a few times. Is only 20 but would like to see a gradual step up in competition.

    Lemieux takes a big step up in competition this Saturday. He faces Donny McCrary 24-9-2(13). McCrary has been in the ring with world class opposition like Lucian Bute, Peter Manfredo Jr, Yuri Foreman, Kofi Jantuah, Allan Green etc. Of his nine defeats only four were by stoppage. Saturday we'll get to see if David's power is for real.

    Make it 18 for 18 as middleweight knockout sensation David Lemieux destroyed former ‘Contender' series star Donnie McCrary (24-10-2 13KO) at 2:40 of the opening round. After exchanging combinations in the middle of the ring, McCrary walked straight back with his hands down and was brutalized by a Lemieux right hand, dropping the Missouri hard to the canvas in a crumpled heap. McCrary managed to beat the count, but Lemieux managed a right to the body and followed it immediately with another to the head which had McCrary down and out and the fight being called immediately.

    Impressive performance [​IMG]

    Super Middleweight afflete Allan Green went life and death with McCrary and was almost knocked out in the sixth round of their fight.

    All of these up and coming black affletes are overrated. Andre Dirrell, Allan Green, and Andre Ward are all bums that will be exposed very soon.

    It looked as if it was going to be long day for knockout sensation David Lemieux. It wasn't. The exciting middleweight scored his 19th knockout in as many fights getting things done before the end of the second round. Alfredo Contreras (10-7-1 4KO) took a blitzkrieg of blows in the second round and remained vertical until a body blow crippled the Mexican fighter, taking him down for a count of ten and beyond at the 2:57 mark.

    David Lemieux made it a perfect twenty for twenty as he absolutely destroyed Delray Raines (17-7 12KO) of Paris Arkansas, knocking him down three times on his way to a 2nd round knockout at 2:51. Lemieux was brutal in his assault on Raines who did his best at trash talking at the weigh-in, despite not be abling to make weight in his first attempt. After going down from a left hand in the first, Lemieux shrugged to the crowd as he walked to the neutral corner, disappointed in the staying power of his latest victim. Raines managed to get up but from that point forward it was Lemieux opening the floodgates and raining down on Raines, knocking him dwon twice more in the second round. The 20 year-old Lemieux captures the WBC Youth belt with the victory.

    David Lemieux easily KOed Delray Raines, while Joe Greene, a top African-American prospect, had a difficult fight with Delroy.

    Knockout sensation David Lemieux (21-0 20KO) entered unchartered territories Saturday as he forced to go the distance against Jason Naugler (18-12-1 11KO), easily scoring a 100-89 victory on all three scorecards in his first headline appearance Saturday afternoon at the Casino de Montreal. Lemieux captures the vacant Canadian super-middleweight championship with the victory after dispatching his first twenty opponents in less than five rounds. Lemieux scored a knockdown in the second round, catching Naugler who has only been stopped once with a right hand and sending the Nova Scotian feet flying out from under him. Naugler proved to be a tough nut to crack as he absorbed the best that Lemieux had to offer and was able to offer back giving the Montreal fighter his toughest fight to date.

    David successfully defended his Canadian Super Middleweight title by knocking out Walid Smichet in the second round. David improves to 22-0(21).

    Walid Smichit is strong and durable, as we saw in his fight with John Duddy.

    Lemieux takes another step up on June 11. He'll face former world title challenger Elvin Ayala 20-4-1(9). The vacant WBC International belt will be on the line.

    This is an interesting matchup on ESPN2 this coming Friday. Ayala is a slick runner, he was evading Abraham until the last minute of the last round. How will Lemieux deal with Ayala's style?

    David Lemieux is a very exciting up-and-comer. Too bad Teddy Atlas will be discrediting him as he has in the past.

    Teddy will be telling us that Lemieux has and advantage with being younger at age 21, but if it was a white 29 year old against a black 21 year old he'd go on about how the white guy has an advantage in maturity and experience. Ayala in fact is in his prime at 29 and has the advantage in experience, having fought two former world titleholders: Sergio Mora and Arthur Abraham.

    Wow. It couldn't have been any better...

    Teddy starts out with his hate for Lemieux "I don't know what people see in him" and favors Ayala to win...

    Then Lemieux floors Ayala.

    Teddy says "if Ayala survives the round he'll win this fight"

    Lemieux floors him again, and then again...

    Lemieux wins by KO 1. Very impressive performance!

    Lemieux looks like the best Canadian prospect since Gatti. He has it all offensively. He just has to survive a chin check to see if he can take a world class punch. I have been thoroughly impressed by this fighter every time I have seen him on Canadian TV fighting out of the Montreal area.

    Atlas is an idiot. Just wait and see how he destroys Povetkin's career.
