  Cloutier’s Canada Corner
Lemieux vs. O’Sullivan Possible For Las Vegas

By Daniel Cloutier

MONTRÉAL -The Montrealer middleweight David Lemieux could fight the Irish Gary O’Sullivan September 15th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, just before the presentation of the main event, this WBC and WBA middleweight world championship bout opposing Gennady Golovkin (38-0-1), from Kazakhstan, and Saul Canelo Alvarez (49-1-2), from Mexico.

Last December at Place Bell in Laval, a Montréal northern suburb, O’Sullivan (28-2-0) beat Antoine Douglas (22-2-1), from Burke, Virginia State, by TKO in the seventh round. The same night, just after the fight O’Sullivan-Douglas, Lemieux (39-4-0) lost by unanimous decision against the WBO middleweight champion of the world, the British Billy Joe Saunders (26-0-0).

Apparently, the promoter of Golden Boy Promotions, the former world champion Oscar De La Hoya, is in negotiation with the Montrealer promoter Camille Estephan to finalize a deal for a fight Lemieux-O’Sullivan.

De La Hoya is Lemieux’s promoter, Estephan is the manager.

Recently, Lemieux mentioned that De La Hoya was very interested to have him on the September 15th boxing show, and the Montrealer fighter said he was extremely interested to fight on this prestigious boxing show.
