BOXING NEWS – Lemieux vs Rubio: WBC middleweight title eliminator


Tomorrow, Friday, April 7 will be an important day for the young talent David Lemieux that will face the experienced and dangerous Marco Antonio Rubio. Canadian Lemieux has already fought against difficult opponents, such as Hector Camacho Jr. or Elvin Ayala (both have lost at first round by ko!), but “El Veneno” Rubio is much more dangerous as he is a boxer with heavy punches, 42 ko on 49 victories, and he lost just against the best: Kelly Pavlik, Zaurbek Baysangurov, Kassim Ouma, Kofi Jantuah and Saul Roman. If the 22-year-old Lemieux (25-0-0 with 24 Ko) will win the fight (we think so) it means that Read more »
