David Lemieux: "The Bout
Will Finish Badly For Stevens"
 
By Daniel Cloutier
MONTRÉAL — Former IBF middleweight champion of the world, David Lemieux (36-3-0) believes he will beat Curtis Stevens (29-5-0) by KO or TKO March 11th in the ring of the Turning Stone Casino, in Verona, New York.

It will be a NABO North American 160 pounds championship fight. “I always try to win by KO and TKO, and it will be no exception March 11th, said the Montrealer Thursday in a press conference held in Montréal. No doubt in my mind, the bout will finish bad for Stevens. He is tough? Me too. And I like the fact that he loves offensive bouts like me. More the fight will be physical, more I will feel comfortable in the ring. I like so much violent bout. The Stevens name has been mentioned to me few months ago, then, I am more than happy to know that the fight will become a reality in few weeks.”
