Tureano Johnson Focused To Expose David Lemieux's Flaws

Former IBF middleweight champion David Lemieux (40-4, 34 KOs) will be looking to pull off a very big knockout victory against Tureano Johnson (20-2, 14 KOs) in the scheduled 12-round co-main event on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

The event will be headlined by WBC, WBA middleweight world champion Canelo Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KOs), who moves up to the super middleweight limit of 168-pounds to challenge WBA "regular" super middleweight world champion Rocky Fielding (27-1, 15 KOs).

In his last bout, which took place in September in Las Vegas, Lemieux barely needed a single round to blow away Spike O'Sullivan at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Johnson realizes that his upcoming fight is very dangerous, with Lemieux being one of the biggest punchers in the sport.

Because of that, Johnson has studied Lemieux for quite a while - and he believes there are more than enough flaws to expose in the future. 

"Boxing is a strategic sport. In fact, boxing isn't really a sport-it's a lifestyle. You have to live this and that's what I do. I live boxing. I study my opponents. David Lemieux is a great puncher, but he does have some flaws, and that's what I'm going to expose Saturday night. Many have beaten Lemieux, but this is going to be a new one. Trust me: this is a treat. We all know that he's a great finisher," Johnson said.

"Once he sees a wounded animal he goes for the kill, but indeed Tureano doesn't know how to get wounded. I don't even know how to get hurt. I'm expecting him to bring the best David Lemieux he can possibly be, but David Lemieux it's going to be a hell of a fight for you if you think you're going to knock Tureano out."

Johnson aint no BJS or GGG... At the presser he said he couldn't wait to feel Lemieux power... Bad call dude, bad call... Lemieux by TKO before 6th round...

Taureano is tough as nails. He almost beat Stevens and he stood and went to war with Derevyanchenko. While he showed he has heart, he also showed he doesn't always make the best decisions to get the win and that…

Johnson is my Bahamian bredren but he got blasted by Derevyanchenko last year and hasn't been in a ring since. I'm not sure that he can keep Lemieux off him.
