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.
