Biography

From the beginning, David Lemieux’s boxing style was tailor made for the professional ranks; needless to say the Olympics were never his ultimate goal. His devastating punching power, his extremely physical style and his intensity all were factors that encouraged him to join the professional boxing world at the age of 18. The gamble paid off for David as he has built an impressive record of 36 wins with 32 knockouts in his young career.

Lemieux has enticed the masses with his raw power and confidence but in reality it is equally due to his overflowing energy and charisma. Many fans make their way to attend his spectacular performances. His intensity and knock-out power has earned him the Quebec Championship (CQB), the WBC Youth Intercontinental title and the WBC International Title that he successfully defended in one round against Hector Camacho Jr. In addition, David was award the Canadian Super Middleweight title when he defeated Jason Naugler via a 10-round unanimous decision.

His perfect record was broken when he faced Mexican Marco Antonio Rubio in a firefight. Following his first defeat, he then faced veteran Joachim Alcine but once again came up short relinquishing his WBC International Title via unanimous decision from the judges.

After these heart breaking losses, Lemieux quickly bounced back and defeated Juadiel Zepeda by knockout in the second round and has followed it up with seven consecutive wins to once again establish himself as a major player in the middleweight division. In his last bout, David has made a statement obliterating the well-respected Fernando Guerrero.

2014 was good to David as he earned his eighth consecutive win and seventh consecutive knockout against Gabriel "King" Rosado in a headlining bout at Barclays Center on December 2014. The bout garnered the attention of boxing critics and fans and elevated him to become one of the best fighters in the middleweight division ranked in the top ten by the IBF, WBO, and WBA. In June of 2015, David proved to the world he deserved a world championship crown when he defeated number one contender, Hassan N’Dam, for the vacant IBF Middleweight World Title. The Montreal native won the belt in style, dropping N’Dam four times before winning the bout via unanimous decision.

David Lemieux was seen as a serious contender against the elite of the middleweight division and fought valiantly for the Unified Middleweight World Championship, in a winner takes all bout for the IBF, WBA, IBO and WBC interim world titles against Gennady “GGG” Golovkin on October 17 via HBO Pay-Per- View.

Lemieux fell to the undefeated Golovkin via eighth-round technical knockout. The loss turned out to be a fruitful one – he went on to stop the hard Glen Tapia on May 7 to gain the NABO Middleweight title and go on to defend the belt against Argentine Christian Rios on October 22, 2016.

In a slug fest this March 11 from Turning Stone, Lemieux faced Curtis “Cerebral Assassin” Stevens for a unification of the WBO Inter-Continental, WBC Continental Americas, and IBF Middleweight Title. Although the two had good exchanges, Lemieux had the upper-hand as he stopped Stevens with a third round knockout.
