Photos: David Lemieux, Yves Ulysse Presser For Canelo-Fielding

Middleweight knockout sensation David Lemieux (40-4, 34 KOs) will look to make a second potential Knockout of the Year performance before 2018 ends as he takes on Tureano Johnson (20-2, 14 KOs) in the scheduled 12-round co-main event of Canelo Alvarez vs. Rocky Fielding.

Lemieux and junior welterweight contender Yves Ulysse Jr. (16-1, 9 KOs) of Montreal were both present to discuss their returns in the coming weeks on the Canelo-Fielding card.


The card will also feature the return of Sadam “World Kid” Ali and will showcase some of Golden Boy Promotions’ best rising stars. The event will take place Saturday, December 15 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.


 Lemieux is a 29-year-old puncher coming off a spectacular first-round knockout victory against Gary “Spike” O’Sullivan on the televised pay-per-view undercard of Canelo vs. GGG2. The native of Montreal, Canada will look to earn another shot at the middleweight crown in this bout against Johnson.

Johnson is a 34-year-old contender who hopes to fight for a world title despite some setbacks. Johnson’s only losses were against Curtis “The Cerebral Assassin” Stevens and Sergiy “The Technician” Derevyanchenko. If the native of Nassau, Bahamas can get past Lemieux, he will join a short list of fighters who are worthy of a middleweight title shot.

 Yves Ulysse Jr. (16-1, 9 KOs) of Montreal, Canada will return in a 10-round super lightweight fight.

[QUOTE=Superbee;19282179]Yup... And not that long ago... He also lost to Curtis Stevens by TKO in 2014... TBH that's a fight to setup a Derevyanchenko vs Lemieux fight before they try on Canelo again... As for Ulysse, it's time for him…

We all know he's fighting Canelo next, so they put him in with someone that can possibly push him a little and even make him look good.
