Therefore, the Lemieux is the card off. Lemieux had looked thin during the last press conference this past week. Your time and effort to generate the 160 lb weight limitation was overly difficult to get Lemieux.
This really can be actually a continuation of the problems Lemieux was having between his burden for the past two years. After he did not make weight for this 20, lemieux had a fight with James De La Rosa fall. Lemieux would continue to battle being overweight in his battles against Billy Joe Saunders and Karim Achour. Lemieux astonishingly made weight due to his last fight against Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan on September 15 on the undercard of Saul Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin II.
That is disappointing news for most, Canelo Alvarez & golden-boy . Lemieux vs. Johnson was possibly the very best fight on Saturday’s card using a long shot. There’s nothing wrong with all Canelo vs. Fielding, apart from being a mismatch. Fielding is actually a limited fighter in super middleweight, and rsquo & wouldn;t be some sort of champion if he had to some body that is fought with talented due to his 168 lb title that is secondary. Fielding won his strap off Tyron Zeuge, a guy that wasn’t well thought of with way of a great deal of boxing fans. Lemieux-Johnson could have been a genuine fight that was interesting. Unlike the Primary affair between Canelo and Fielding,” Lemieux vs. Johnson was a 50-50 battle. It was a with a lot on line for the two guys. The winner of the fight was viewed as having a great shot.
The consequences of Lemieux pulling out of the Canelo-Fielding fight due to weight issues will make it Harder to get Golden Boy Promotions to warrant matching Canelo contrary to the fighter on May 4 from the Mexican star’s next battle on Cinco de Mayo at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Bernard Hopkins of Golden Boy Promotions leaked the advice that Lemieux is one of the 2 options that they have for Canelo&rsquo. The other guy that golden-boy is enthusiastic in fitting Canelo contrary to is IBF middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs, who has squeaked with his two competitors Sergiy Derevyanchenko in winning a set of 12 round split decisions, and Maciej Sulecki.
Jacobs would be much more difficult opponent for Canelo due to reach, his size, speed, conditioning and power in contrast to Lemieux. Then they may have to elevate the burden out of 160 to 168 so as to adapt the fighter In case Golden Boy elect to still use Lemieux to get Canelo on May 4. It would be too insecure for golden-boy to schedule Canelo vs. Lemieux at middle weight. The World Boxing Council would need to give Canelo their boon for still another middleweight fight rather than him protecting his WBC middleweight title against one among the contenders. This would look bad on the WBC’s most part allowing Canelo still another fight at super middleweight without protecting his WBC 160 lb title. The WBC might strip Canelo if he chooses to continue to fight at super middleweight and maybe not face his challenger Jermall Charlo.
Lemieux is resisting moving up to super middleweight , however it appears like he’therefore definitely going to need to get that movement whether he wishes. Heor rsquo;therefore needing too many problems trying to make the 160 lb weight limit, and he will no more be counted on to make weight each time out. When it reaches the point whereby Lemieux is hospitalized for dehydration as a consequence of his problems trying to get weight in 160, then ’s a sign that he needs to move up to 168. At this point 168 may be a problem for Lemieux. He’s a guy that needs to have made the progress to middle weight a long time ago. The one thing is, Lemieux could wind up at light heavyweight eventually. Eight extra pounds is nothing once you&rsquo got the size that Lemieux has. Lemieux’s promoters in rsquo & Golden Boy may;t continue to schedule him fights in middleweight if he could ’t make weight to your own division. This would be an insane move on their role.
Lemieux moving up to middleweight’s drawback may be the simple fact that he&rsquo. To be sure Lemieux is going to be large enough to fight at super middle weight, in terms of his stature, he also ’s definitely going to be short to be more fighting in that division. The guys at super middleweight are 6’two ″ and also above. Believe it or not, rsquo; Prime & 1; Fielding & the 6 may be the shortest of the super middleweights, and he’therefore viewed as the weakest link among the champions. WBA Super World champion Callum Smith is rsquo; & 3 & Prime;, WBO belt holder Gilberto Ramirez is 6 & 6 ’Prime & 2 1/2; and IBF champion Jose Uzcategui is rsquo 6 &;Prime & two;. If miniature 5’9″ Lemieux strives fighting those guys, he’will get worked from the out from those fighters, and probably easily defeated in precisely the same way he was by Billy Joe Saunders and also Gennady Golovkin. It would be the problems Canelo could have if he strove in the super middleweight division against the excellent fighters instead of poorer fighters like Fielding to effort.
It’will appear ridiculous on Golden Boy’s most a part if they pick on rsquo Lemieux as Canelo &;Could 4, s rival rather than Jermall or Jacobs Charlo. Golden Boy needs to select some body that can be counted on to produce the 160 pound weight limitation so that Canelo can defend his WBA/WBC middleweight titles. If Canelo will fight consecutive battles at super middleweight while freezing his WBC middleweight title he needs to vacate the buckle that fighters can fight to it.
The Canelo-Fielding card additionally won’t have light-welterweight potential Vergil Ortiz Jr., as he pulled out of this card thanks to the New York State Athletic Commission not licensing him because of Lasik eye surgery.
