LEMIEUX TO FACE GUERRERO ON SHOWTIME
Press Release: Groupe Yvon Michel (GYM) announced the Showtime co-feature for May 24th at Bell Centre in Montreal. Quebec middleweight David Lemieux (31-2-0, 29 KOs) will take on Maryland's Fernando Guerrero (26-2-0, 19 KOs).
Michel says Lemieux (pictured) has made vital changes since his loss to Marco Antonio Rubio (59-6-1, 51 KOs). Lemieux is riding a six-fight win streak, five coming by knockout.
Last November in Laval (Quebec), Jose Miguel Torres (27-6-0, 24 KOs) was stopped in the seventh round, his first stoppage loss in his career, after Lemieux floored him six times.
Guerrero had a great amateur career, highlighted by being crowned national champion in 2007. His more notables wins as a professional have been over Gabriel Rosado (21-8-0, 13 KOs), Ossie Duran (28-11-3, 11 KOs) and Ishe Smith (25-6-0, 11 KOs. In his lone world title shot to date, by way of seventh-round technical knockout to WBO middleweight champion Peter Quillin (30-0-0, 22 KOs) in 2013.
