Alcine Eyes 154, But Open To "Big Money" Lemieux Redo

By Chris LaBate

Joachim Alcine's career is back, after his shocking twelve round majority decision upset win on Saturday night at the Bell Centre in Montreal. A huge underdog going in, he got the better of the bigger and stronger, but inexerpienced David Lemieux (25-2, 24KOs). Alcine was give the win with scores of 116-112, 114-114 and 116-112.

In winning, Alcine (33-2-1, 19 KOs) captured the WBC's International title at 160-pounds. Alcine would like to continue his career at 154-pounds, where he captured the WBA's championship, but he's open to a rematch with Lemieux - for the right price.

"He lost against a former world champion. Within a year or two, he will be world champion. David has what it takes to be a champion, all he lacks is experience. It was a difficult fight. Much hard than my world title fight [against Daniel Santos] Lemieux was much bigger than me, about 15 more pounds, and I had to compensate for that with additional effort to get the win. If there is a lot of money on the table, I'll make the effort [to do the rematch at 160]. I had confidence in myself and now I want to go home and celebrate with my family," Alcine said.

good for him, i can see arum setting up a fight with him and chavez. and if he goes down to 154, it'd be nice to see him face delvin rodriguez or something, but again, i think the wbc champ…
