LEMIEUX TO FACE GAONA IN MONTREAL NEXT MONTH
Press Release: On October 12th at Montreal's Bell Center, 23-year-old middleweight David Lemieux (26-2, 25 KOs), will be showcased in a ten-round co-feature against Mexico's Alvaro "The Cobra" Gaona (15-1-0, 12 KOs). Gaona's only loss as a pro was to Esau Errera (17-5-1, 8 KOs) in 2011, which Gaona avenged last June by technical knockout. After a difficult, injury-plagued 2011 and early 2012 that saw him lose two of his last three bouts, Lemieux hopes to finish this year strong. "Last weekend I was excited watching boxers in my division like (Sergio) Martinez, (Julio) Chavez Jr. and (Mathew) Macklin,” Lemieux commented. “I thought that is the level I want to be fighting at and as soon as possible. I know I'm not there, yet, but I am neglecting nothing, personally or professionally to get there. I assure you that I am not so too far away.” The show's main event matches Adonis "Superman" Stevenson (18-1-0, 15 KO) and Donovan "Da Bomb" George (23-2-1 , 20 KO).
