Spike O'Sullivan: Lemieux Was a 179-Pound Light Heavyweight!

T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas - David Lemieux (40-4, 34KOs) of Montreal, Canada defeated Gary O'Sullivan (28-3, 22KOs) of Cork, Ireland via knockout in the first round of a middleweight bout scheduled for 12 rounds. Lemieux earned a chance at the WBA Middleweight Title by stopping O'Sullivan at 2:44 seconds of the aforementioned round.

"Unfortunately, this is boxing," said Gary O'Sullivan. "I got caught, and it just so happens it was against a 179-pound light heavyweight who caught me. That was a big weight discrepancy at fight time."
