David Lemieux to battle Curtis Stevens on March 11th
Former IBF Middleweight Champion David Lemieux (36-3, 32 KOs) will go toe-to-toe with Curtis “The Cerebral Assassin” Stevens (29-5, 21 KOs) to battle for Lemieux’s NABO title on Saturday, March 11. Scheduled for 12 rounds, Lemieux vs. Stevens will take place at Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, New York and will be televised live on HBO Boxing After Dark beginning at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT.

 

“The time for talking is done, and after many long months of hearing Curtis yell about all the things he’s going to do in the ring, I’m really looking forward to shutting his mouth on March 11,” Lemieux said. “I’ve told everyone my goal is to once again become middleweight champion of the world. Curtis is in the way, and I’m going to go right through him.”

“The wait is finally over!” said Stevens. “No more talking. My hands will do the talking on March 11.”

 

Let the fireworks begin, this one should be a barnburner with somebody ending up asleep on the canvas.

 

Your thoughts, I'm rolling with Lemeiux, Stevens just doesn't impress me all that much with his overall skill.

Stevens either gets beat or beats himself (gasses late), it's a tale as old as time. I know this is a fight and anything can happen, but, Stevens got crushed by GGG, who didn't even pressure him until late....Lemieux gets the pressure going early. 

 

Stevens always has a puncher's chance, more of a puncher's chance than most of these guys out here who are only limited to closing their eyes and landing something big.

Lemieux will win by KO. Gonna be decent for as long as it lasts.

Stevens, to me, is just one of those guys with a punch who never took his career as seriously as he should have. He's always been in love with his power and never struck me as a guy who was even remotely interesting in going the distance. Lemieux chops him down.

Lem is just better overall, and if the GGG fight was anything to go by definitely better chin. I mean he took a massive shot, while down and still was well kneeing but wasn't out
