Middleweight titlist David Lemieux (34-2, 31 KOs) of Montreal, Quebec, Canada said that Golovkin has not faced a fighter like him before during a public media workout held at the historic Forum in Montreal today.
Lemieux is set to face middleweight multi-titlist Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (33-0, 30 KOs) in a highly anticipated title unification on Saturday, Oct. 17 at the Madison Square Garden.
“Golovkin has not faced a fighter like me before. I am an aggressive fighter and I am confident in my abilities. I feel that I will be successful on Oct. 17.” said Lemeiux.
If you’re going to look at it, yes, Golovkin may have not faced a fighter like Lemeiux before. Lemeiux is the type of fighter who really comes forward and throw hard punches. But the question there is that: how durable he is when hit also by power punches coming forward?
We all knew that both fighter are capable of knocking an opponents out. I think the difference is that Golovkin really has power in both hands capable of knocking anyone in the division with just one punch, but Lemeiux overwhelms an opponent with series of punches wearing them down before stopping them.
This is a very exciting fight and is interesting to watch.
