Golovkin's Promoter Will Call Golden Boy For Lemieux

By Steve Kim

David Lemieux captured the vacant IBF middleweight title on Saturday night in Montreal in emphatic fashion by defeating the game Hassan N'Dam in what was an entertaining affair that saw Lemieux score four knockdowns over the course of the night. Lemieux won by the scores of 114-110 and 115-109 (twice).

A very interested observer was Gennady Golovkin, who currently holds the WBA, IBO and WBC-interim belt, and is looking for a significant fight as it looks like Miguel Cotto - who holds the full WBC belt - will be facing Saul "Canelo" Alvarez in the fall.

Tom Loeffler, the managing director of K2 Promotions, who handle Golovkin's career says he will be calling Golden Boy Promotions on Monday regarding a possible clash between Golovkin and Lemieux.

"Lemieux's a very strong puncher, he knocked down N'Dam numerous times and we congratulate him for winning the IBF title and it'll be a great unification clash with 'Triple G,'" Loeffler told just a few minutes after Saturday night's bout that took place at the Bell Centre.

But will Golden Boy be willing to throw Lemiuex in there versus 'GGG' so quickly?

''I think it's very realistic, I think it would be a great fight and it's the two biggest punchers in the middleweight division fighting each other," Loeffler stated.

As for where a potential Golovkin-Lemieux fight could take place, Montreal or New York seem to be the most natural destinations. Loeffler remarked:

"We'd have to see first if Lemieux and Golden Boy accepts the fight then we'd  have to see which arena's would be available. I know that HBO would definitely be interested in that fight."
