Estephan co-promotes the 30-year-old Lemieux, and he thinks a fight between him and Canelo can still happen in 2019.
Golden Boy Promotions harbor ’t awarded some ideas of who Canelo will be fighting in his second battle May 4. The single guy the boxing fans seem interested in watching Canelo fight is Gennady Golovkin. Daniel Jacobs’ promoter Eddie Hearn was saying that DAZN wants Canelo to fight Jacobs, but we don’t know whether this ’s the case or maybe not. Lemieux are a decent competition if Canelo doesn’t wish to manage Jacobs or look after his World Boxing Council compulsory challenger Jermall Charlo (28-0, 21 KOs). Canelo vs. Lemieux might have the ability to earn a few subcribers to get DAZN. It’s an easy fight to earn contrast to this Canelo-GGG 3 and Canelo vs. Charlo struggles. Putting a fight with him may possibly end up being difficult.
Lemieux was hospitalized for dehydration earlier this month while trying to help make the 160 pound weight limitation for his fight Tureano Johnson around the undercard of the Canelo vs. Rocky Fielding fight on DAZN in Madison Square Garden in New York. That battle was supposed to place Lemieux from the conducting to face Canelo on May 4 to Cinco de Mayo at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Golden-boy co-promotes Lemieux, therefore that it ’s a pure fight for them to wish to make. Estephan still considers the Canelo vs. Lemieux fight can occur, so long because it happens at 168. Canelo demonstrated within his fight against former World Boxing Association ‘routine ’ super middleweight champion Rocky Fielding on December 15 he’s equally as talented in 168 as he is at 160. Enrolling in weight to super middleweight isn’t an issue for Canelo. The single question is does Canelo want the fight with Lemieux or does he prefer to move down to 160 so as to resist famous brands IBF middleweight champion Daniel Jacobs in a unification fight?
If GoldenBoy Promotions wants Canelo to own an advantage over a weakened Lemieux, they can insist that the fight between them take place at 160. It’d have been an identical situation where GoldenBoy setup a fight between Canelo Alvarez and super middleweight Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in May 2017. It turned out to be a catchweight fight at 164.5 lbs. In his recent struggles earlier that, Chavez Jr. had been fighting badly merely to produce 168. Requiring that Chavez Jr. get down to 164.5 to fight Canelo was only asking for trouble.
If the idea was to be certain Chavez Jr. was weakened enough to get Canelo to win an easy fight, afterward GoldenBoy accomplished their goal in having the fight conducted in a catchweight in the place of the complete weight for the super middleweight division. But if this has been the idea behind the catchweight, afterward it backfired on GoldenBoy, as Chavez Jr. was so feeble he looked ailing for the fight. Canelo wound up dominating a drained looking Chavez Jr. on HBO PPV, and the boxing fans that paid to observe the boring struggle were angry in getting little value for their money. For GoldenBoy and Canelo’s fascination, they will need to produce ensure Lemieux isn’t drained as Chavez Jr. was because of his fight with Alvarez. The focus should really be on ensuring Canelo’s fights are fan-friendly as possible therefore that his fame can continue to rise. Regrettably for Canelo, his struggles against Chavez Jr. along with Rocky Fielding looked like awful mismatches against poor resistance. Like he’d no skills at 9, fielding fought. For some sort of champion, Fielding was an embarrassment.
It’d be insecure for Canelo to schedule a fight Lemieux in 160, as he may not have the capability to produce weight for the fight. As-long-as Canelo is flexible with all the weight, a fight between him and Lemieux can still happen even though the Canadian neglects to produce weight. Ideally though, Canelo vs. Lemieux should take place at the entire weight for the super middleweight division at 168. Lemieux is too big for middleweight at this time in his career, and the final thing he needs would be to be hospitalized again trying to make weight. Lemieux should be able to produce 168. That weight might not be easy for himas he looks as he walks around in the 180s to reduce 190s. If Lemieux struggles even to produce 168, afterward it’so hard to see him with enough time left as a high degree expert. Those guys would provide a variety of issues with their own size to Lemieux.
