Russ Anber, the trainer for middleweight contender David Lemieux (25-1, 24KOs), said his boxer abandoned their planned strategy in the recent WBC eliminator with Marco Antonio Rubio. Last Friday at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Lemieux started strong but faded in the later rounds as Rubio took over ther fight and stopped him in the seventh.

Anber says Lemieux, 22-years-old, stepped away from their strategy while attempting to secure a quick knockout to satisfy the live crowd. The strategy was to take Rubio into deep waters by breaking him down slowly, but Lemieux was going for a knockout in every round. 

"It's youth. David really wanted to please the public. But this was not what we had prepared to do in the gym. Our strategy was to run a marathon, but David decided to run 200 meters. Even at ESPN, they heard us, we told David to calm down, but it lasted 30 seconds and then he would go for the knockout. And when you spend too much time looking for something, that's when you lose. You need confidence, but when you have too much of it - you become deaf. You lose your ears. Young people lose sight of reality. They see a mirage," Anber told Alex Lebrun.

ZigZag - You failed to realize is it doesn't matter WHAT age a fighter is, being 9-0 to 15-0 he had NO business fighting SUB 500 fighters! Sorry to break the news but I have seen EVERY episode of ShoBox and seen MANY 20-23 year old fighters fight other prospects when Lemieux was fighting guys wit...

[QUOTE=mellow_mood]This ^^^^^^^^^^^^[/QUOTE] I notice that in your video of Trinidad beating Vargas you didn't include video of Trinidad beating Oscar. That's because there isn't any! LOL!

I know more then 90% of people on here, but thanks for the advice. Maybe you should learn a few things though... [QUOTE=richardt]There is a REASON why Lemieux fought light punching washed up Camacho Jr. and light punching Elvin Ayala. There is a reason why from his 9th to 15th fight he did ...
