Following a crowd-pleasing fight debut in American soil, Canadian David Lemieux (33-2, 31 KO’s) signed an exclusive promotional contract with Golden Boy Promotions. In a press release, Lemieux said that he is “very pleased” and “excited” with GBP’s association.
“I am very pleased and excited with my association with Golden Boy Promotions,” said David Lemieux. “I am ready to face the best and this is the mission that I give to Camille Estephan at Eye of the Tiger Management and Oscar De La Hoya and Eric Gomez at Golden Boy Promotions.”
Lemieux scored a knockdown in the third round and eventually won a technical knockout in the tenth round against Gabriel Rosado last year. Rosado, a known bleeder, left eye was swollen shut, forcing the ringside doctor to stop the contest.
In order to settle a lawsuit against GBP’s former CEO, Richard Shaefer, GBP surrendered promotional rights to Haymon-advised fighters. Golden Boy Promotions tried to strengthened their pool of fighters by signing international and local talents.
I think signing Lemieux could somehow help fortified the breached Golden Boy banner.
