David Lemeiux versus Curtis Stevens, 12 rounds on HBO at the Turning Stone Casino in Verona, New York is a fight I have personally felt for several years now was the best pure match up to be made at 160 pounds. Titles, money and networks aside, just in terms of the two fighters in the division who matched up the best, this was the middleweight fight I’ve been waiting for.

It exceeded expectations. (continue reading…)

NEW YORK CITY, NY, October, 17, 2015 — In front of a packed Madison Square Garden in the biggest city in the union, Gennady “Triple G” Golovkin showed new dimensions of his game never on display before mixed with his usual penchant for all action pressure to completely dominate and dismantle his biggest challenge to date in IBF champion David Lemieux. Speaking of bigger and more dangerous challenges, this seems to be the main theme of each successive GGG outing nowadays. The latest bigger and more dangerous challenger is turned into just another opponent over and over as he beats them up and makes it look easy every single time.

David’s entourage is carrying the champions IBF middleweight strap aloft, proudly displaying the hard earned hardware for the crowd. (continue reading…)
