The Five Things We Learned From Lemieux-Stevens

David Lemieux and Curtis Stevens thrilled us with a three round slugfest on Saturday night in Verona, New York. The former IBF middleweight champion walked off with one of the more impressive knockout wins of 2017 so far. 

Let's take a look at five things we learned from that middleweight bout:

1. Not Going The Distance

The fight had all the makings of a bangfest not only because of the fighter's reputations but because of the bad blood between them. 75% of the fans at the Throwdown Scoring app predicted that the fight won't go the distance with 52% calling it a KO win for Lemieux. They were correct.

2. David Lemieux Outgunned Stevens

David Lemieux completeley outgunned Curtis Stevens through three rounds. If you take a look at the post fight punch stats of the bout, it was all David Lemieux by a mile. Stevens allowed Lemieux to go off early and paid for it dearly

3. It was Checkmate

David Lemieux has to thank Curtis Stevens for bringing out the best in him. Lemieux got so pissed off with Stevens that he promised to destroy him. Stevens fell hard on the canvass and took several minutes to regain consciousness. It was scary but good thing he was ok. As for Lemieux, he called it 'checkmate'.

4. Never Put Gas On Fire

David Lemieux said it best before the fight: “You don’t want to put gas on a fire and make it bigger when you know that fire can grow and grow and grow and eventually you get burned.” Lesson learned for Curtis Stevens.

5. Big Fights Await David Lemieux

With the victory, David Lemieux goes back to the top of the middleweight picture. The Montreal slugger talked about regaining his world title or fighting Canelo Alvarez. Either way, bigger things await David Lemieux after his spectacular third round knockout win over Curtis Stevens.
