The venue will be the Turning Stone Resort Casino, with live coverage featured on HBO Boxing After Dark. Lemieux was joined his trainer Marc Ramsay and here is what they had to say:
DAVID LEMIEUX, Former IBF middleweight champion:
''The last time that my opponent spoke so much and I so disliked him, I believe it was Delray Raines. I broke three of his ribs and his nose. It didn't end up very well for him.''
''I couldn't be more prepared for a fight. I have one objective in mind: I want to take his head off. I am so motivated to put on a great performance on Saturday night. Stevens put a lot of oil in the fire with his disrespectful comments and he will pay for it. ''
''I had an exceptional camp and we have prepared for this fight very seriously. We are ready for the best Stevens there is, going 12 rounds if needed. I guarantee you that it will be a rough night for him. ''
MARC RAMSAY, Trainer to David Lemieux:
''It is important to go there and deliver a spectacular performance. This is a good challenge. In this fight, we have to execute well what we have prepared to do for the last eight weeks. ''
