Video: Billy Joe Saunders Breaks Down Domination of Lemieux

Billy Joe Saunders (26-0, 12 KOs) outpointed hometown hero David Lemieux (38-4, 33 KOs) to retain the WBO Middleweight World Championship in the 12-round main event of HBO World Championship Boxing at Place Bell in Laval, Quebec, Canada.

Saunders, a native of the United Kingdom, outboxed Lemieux for 12 rounds from his slick southpaw stance to win via unanimous decision with scores of 120-108, 117-111, and 118-110.

Irish middleweight Gary "Spike" O'Sullivan (27-2, 19 KOs) dropped and stopped Antoine "Action" Douglas (22-2-1, 16 KOs) of Burke, Virginia in the seventh round of an exciting back-and-forth co-main event that was initially scheduled for 10 rounds.

Douglas scored an early lead with a hard jab and hooks to the body, but O'Sullivan eventually wore him down with an incessant amount of pressure, featuring left hooks and right hands from a high guard that guaranteed the technical knockout victory. Douglas was taken to the hospital immediately after the fight.

Yves Ulysse, Jr. (14-1, 9 KOs) scored a wide unanimous decision victory against Cletus "The Hebrew Hammer" Seldin (21-1, 17 KOs) across 10 rounds of super lightweight action.

Ulysse scored a knockdown in each of the first three rounds, and followed that explosive opening with a veritable boxing lesson for the next seven rounds. All judges scored the fight 99-88 in favor of Ulysse.

Rising super featherweight star Ryan "Kingry" Garcia (13-0, 12 KOs) of Victorville, Calif. stopped the experienced southpaw Noe Martinez (10-10-2, 6 KOs) of Michoacan, Mexico via TKO in the final round of a scheduled eight-rounder.
