Photos: David Lemieux Looks Depleted at Weigh-In For Achour

by Luke Furman

Back in December, it may have been the last time that former IBF middleweight champion David Lemieux (38-4, 33 KOs) competed at 160-pounds.

Earlier today, Lemieux failed to make the middleweight limit - coming in at 162-pounds, for his scheduled fight on Saturday night in Quebec City.

Lemieux will take on Karim Achour (26-4-3, 4 KOs), who has never been stopped in his career.

 While the 29-year-old boxer was unable to make the limit, Achour scaled in at 159 pounds, a full pound under the limit.

Lemieux was given time to get down in weight and come back.

But after less than an hour, Lemieux's promoter and manager Camille Estephan of Eye of The Tiger Management, advised the local officials that his boxer would not be fighting at 160.

Lemieux is attempting to bounce back after suffering a one-sided twelve round decision loss to WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders back in December.

Estephan told local reporters that he wants Lemieux to move up to the super middleweight limit of 168-pounds - because he's concerned about the physical hell that Lemieux endures while squeezing down to the middleweight limit.

Not just depleted, also neglected.
