Lemieux vs. Bursak, Makhmudov-Peter, Kean-Liakhovich on Dec. 7

The Eye of the Tiger Management team confirmed Tuesday morning that David Lemieux will headline a gala presented at the Bell Center on December 7, according to RDS.

In the main event of the evening, Lemieux (40-4, 34 KOs) will make a comeback in Quebec for the first time since his clash with Karim Achour in May 2018 and this time, in his first at 168-pounds. For the occasion, he will face the Ukrainian Max Bursak (34-5-2, 15 KO) - who never lost by knockout.

"I am very excited to come back to fight at home, in front of my loved ones and my fans. I feel at the peak of my fitness and I plan to give everything in order to offer a memorable evening to boxing fans," Lemieux said.

Arslanbek Makhmudov and Simon Kean will also be in action on the card.

"We are very proud to present this event, which is special for us because it represents the fruit of nearly a year of work for both the organization and our boxers. It embodies our desire to surpass ourselves in order to present exciting and spectacular duels not only in order to ensure the progress of our athletes but also to put the eyes on boxing fans," said the president of EOTTM, Camille Estephan.

Makhmudov (9-0, 9 KOs) will defend his NABF heavyweight title against the so-called "The Nigerian Nightmare" in reference to his reputation as a slugger, Samuel Peter (38-8, 31 KO). The former Nigerian-born world champion has rubbed shoulders with some of the biggest names in heavyweights including Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko as well as Hughie Fury.

Kean (17-1, 16 KOs) will get an important test as he faces former WBO heavyweight champion Sergie "White Wolf" Liakhovich (27-7, 17 KOs) .

A representative of Belarus at the 1996 Olympics, bronze medalist at the 1997 world championships, Liakhovich had an impressive amateur career in which he had a record of 145 wins and only 15 defeats. He continued his progression in the pros by measuring himself to the elite of the division including Andy Ruiz Jr., Deontay Wilder, Bryant Jennings or Shannon Briggs.

Makhmudov is pretty decent, will crush the old Peter.

Was wondering when the mule would turn up again, interested to see how he goes at 168, maybe a new chapter.
