After stopping Curtis Stevens in round 3 in the knockout of the year, former IBF middleweight champion David Lemieux has stated he wants either Canelo Alvarez or WBO champion Billy Joe Saunders.
The Canadian dispatched of Stevens in ruthless fashion as the pair made for a very interesting build up. There was lots of trash talking prior to the bout, and Stevens even set up a crowd funding page online for the stretcher that would carry Lemieux to hospital. Ironically Stevens was hit to hard, he was unconscious and he himself was the one that ended up in hospital.
Lemieux then went on to say in the post fight press conference that he wants to face either Canelo Alvarez or Billy Joe Saunders as he feels he is still a world contender. He does also want the rematch with Gennady Golovkin but most people feel the same result would happen.
