Saunders vs Lemieux Weigh-ins – The weigh-ins are in the books in Quebec for Saturday’s middleweight world title fight between Billy Joe Saunders and David Lemieux.
Saunders, the WBO champion out of the U.K., is putting his belt and undefeated record at risk fighting the Canadian Lemieux in Quebec. Lemieux, known as a knock-out artist, is eager to get another world title fight after failing in his first bid in 2015 against Gennady Golovkin. Whereas Lemieux vs Golovkin was a battle of hard hitters, this match-up with Saunders presents totally different challenges. Saunders, a stylish boxer who has held onto the belt through two title defenses, is his usual confident self heading into his first pro fight outside the U.K.
