Saunders vs. Lemieux - CompuBox Historical Review

By CompuBox

As Billy Joe Saunders (last 6 fights) jabs goes, so goes Saunders. 25 of his 38.9 punches thrown per round (64.3%- CompuBox avg.: 41.6%)) are jabs and 6.2 of his 10.7 landed punches per round (57.9%- CompuBox avg.: 28%) are jabs.

He landed just 4.4 power shots per round- nearly 1/3 the CompuBox avg. His style is effective, as opponents landed just 18% of their total punches (7.8 per round-- half the wgt. class avg.) and just 23.6% of their power shots (4.7 per round).

Lemieux is busier and made more contact in his last 5 fights than Saunders (18 landed per round/55.3 thrown- 45.1% power connect pct.). As a result of his aggressiveness, opponents landed 36.8% of their power shots.

saunders-lemieux-compuboxWBO Middleweight World Champion Billy Joe Saunders has vowed to put David Lemieux 'out like a candle' when the bitter rivals square off at the Place Bell in Laval, Quebec this weekend, live on BT Sport HD2 and BoxNation.

Hatfield star Saunders will be fighting overseas for the first time in his professional career when he makes the third defence of his crown against the hard-hitting Lemieux in his own backyard, and is unfazed by fighting in hostile territory.

Former Middleweight title holder Lemieux has promised to 'do everyone a favour' by 'getting rid' of Saunders. The Montreal native boasts 33 big knockouts from 38 career wins and is eager to 'do damage' to Saunders, telling journalists at Tuesday's media workout that the Champion will 'hit the floor'.

Hertfordshire hitter Saunders is in a typically confident mood heading into Saturday's showdown, even promising Lemieux his entire fight purse if the Canadian manages to knock him out.

"I'm a fighting man, a gypsy warrior, and I'll travel anywhere on the planet to defend my World Title," said Saunders. "I'm heading into the lions den this weekend, Lemieux will have the whole arena behind him but that won't make one ounce of a difference, I'll thrive off their hate for me. Once that bell goes it's just me and him stood in that ring, he's is for one hell of a tough night.
