    Default Saunders vs Lemieux official

    According to fat Dan they have agreed to the fight. December 16th is the date I think. Good fight. Let’s see if Lemieux can make a Saunders fight exciting or if Saunders can make a Lemieux fight boring.

    The rumour is it's gonna be in Canada. Couple of thoughts.....
    1. Although he probably never had a choice in the opponent if he wanted to keep his title, props to Saunders that he's actually fighting Lemieux.
    2. Yet again, old Frankie baby has decided not to back his man with his wallet to get him home advantage.
    I really think it could be crucial in this fight. If it's in Canada, Lemieux wins , without a doubt.
    If it's in the U.K. , Saunders might get a hometown robbery decision.

    Saunders wins an easy decision. Lemieux is shit and he won't land a glove on Saunders.

    Always weary of the one brick sluggers but I think Lemieux will catch him. Monroe spent half a fight standing in front of him just posing and BJ actually thought he was in Golovkin-Canelo sweepstakes after.

    Lemieux has a chance.

    Lemiuex knocks Saunders's BLOCK clean off.... smooooottttthhhhhh out of his boxing shoes. Saunders will think he can box, but he will realize that he had better run at around the 3rd round. Then it is just a wait and see until Lemmy connects and then it is lights out.

    I don't think Saunders beat Eubank cleanly. It could have gone either way, with Saunders tiring at the end.

    I think people (not here as such) are getting carried away with Lemieux's punching power and jumping to the conclusion that Saunders is getting flattened.


    I still dont like the fucker but for me, Saunders stands him on his head.

    This post sums it up for me.

    Saunders will make it boring to win and Lemieux the other way round.

    I believe Saunders is a better boxer and want him to win in style.

    Yeah, he can punch a bit but he won’t land clean and even if he does Saunders chin doesn’t seem that bad. It’ll be a shut out for the far better boxer against a very overrated puncher.

    This is Saunders chance to back up all the talk, Lemieux is a solid challenger and a tough outing in his own back yard I don't like Saunders at all but if he pulls of a good win fair play to him. Tbh I think Saunders looses a close points 12 rounder.

    I actually agree with GayMo on this one.
    BJS has a decent chin and I think he'll take a few big shots but ultimately will win on points after outboxing Lemmy

    Saunders wins this and he has his GGG or Canelo fight next year..

    We haven't seen the best of BJS.

    I think Saunders just has to make it through the first few rounds and then it probably becomes his fight. He took some decent shots from Lee and kept himself out of the wheelhouse. He's a better boxer than Lemieux, so presumably if he doesn't pork up between fights and keeps himself sharp, he just uses his jab and footwork to play bullfighter the first few rounds.

    Lemieux tends to load up which is a big tell. After he blows his wad in the first few, his shots become a lot easier to see because the wind up is slower and easier to spot. If Saunders keeps his back off the ropes, stays out of the corners, jabs and doesn't go straight back... he can put lemieux behind on the cards and Lemieux's desperation means he'll start loading up even more.

    Lemieux could land a shot conceivably if he uses his jab and backs Saunders up and loops one over the top or sneaks one underneath on the left side on a panic stricken Saunders. For me the pro Saunders situation is easier to fathom because its not as much of a stretch for Saunders against a plodder. Lemieux working on his head movement and learning to deflect with his shoulders to create opportunities for himself on the inside before Saunders makes his exit, would up my stock in Lemieux for this fight.

    The x factors are of course:
    • The hometown advantage
    • The weight issue, both fighters have a tendency to bloat, Lemieux tends to get stronger at the cost of endurance and Saunders just gets pudgy winded and looks disinterested overall.
    • Whether enough Saunders Jab has enough on it to get lemieux thinking or just have him reset.
    They want your @$$ beat because upsets make news. News brings about excitement, excitement brings about ratings. The objective is to bring you up to the tower and tear your @$$ down. And if you don't believe that, you're crazy.
