    Probably the best willing and available for the fight. I guess it could be said he earned his shot. Can he Beat triple G. I think it really depends on How GGG plans to fight.
    - Triple G can box him and try to take the starch out of him early, use his jab and make lemmy waste a lot of energy early. Eventually, line him up and walk him into big shots.
    - Triple G can brawl and give this kid a chance to land a big shot. Even if he doesnt Brawl, GGG is not a defensive whiz so with the right training and good set of eyes, Lemmys camp could still workout a game plan to land a shot.

    If GGG is smart, he'll jab him and pick at him from the outside. Flurry with him in the phone booth to give the fans some excitement and then tie him up. The Key for GGG is to avoid that mid-range where Lemmys punches are their most lethal. The Key for Lemieux is to slip that lead punch get into the mid range, use his jab back GGG (he has a bad habit sometime of going straight back sometimes) and set up something big. When GGG gets him in close range and attempts to tie him up, lemieux needs to keep the attack going, work the hooks to the body and avoid an uppercut that can shorten his night (Lemieux has a bad habit of keep his head down while inside--ripping wide hooks to the body leaves a wide window of opportunity for GGG to come straight up the middle with something heavy.)

    Say what you will about the limited skills (and perhaps beard) of Lemieux, hes still not a weatherbeaten Berto. Just my opinion.
    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.

    Yep, just about the best MW Available that's prepared to fight him. Of course , the anti GGG mob will say he should be stepping up to fight Ward and the rest of the SMW's, but they're all tied up at the moment, and Ward is supposedly fighting TBA on the Canelo-Cotto undercard.

    Berto should not be compared as mayweather is in a different place from GGG.

    Ten years ahead in constant champion wins and about to retire.

    If GGG does beat David then the best business move is to pick on the little guys winner from canelo and cotto and then take the ultimate test in Andre ward.

    It's a good fight. Lemieux isn't great but he's one of the best at the weight. Just the weight class doesn't have much to offer.

    The division is in scam mode. The Kazak according to Fat Dan got between 800,000 to 900,000 to step aside for the farce championship.They got off easy all things considered. Now the fake champion is making 30 million to fight a non-middle who gets close to 4 million in a catchweight fight for whats called the Ring and lineal middleweight title.

    Sanctioned racketeering.

    He'll find someone worthy before his prime ends. I remember listening to Jake Lamotta talk about Marvin Haglar- he said- Haglar wasn't that good because he didn't have real competition in his era LOL!

    Haglar is probably saying the same thing about GGG.

    Just came to me- Jake said about Haglar what we say about guys like Floyd.

    He said Hagla's best fights came against guys who were WW's that gained weight. not TRUE MW's

    Well, Hagler did make his name off of x welter stars that moved up. So did Monzon and Hopkins.

    The Kazaks problem is different and if you will 3 fold. This "A-side" posing as champions wont fight him. None of the other 3 had that problem. He's destroyed everyone he's fought and even when he's a mandatory and aired out the division and all thats left is unification, the one falsely recognized as the REAL champion wont fight him holding top spot hostage and putting on farcical defenses. Those 3 never dealt with that either. And finally the welters wont move up and fight him. They did for those 3.

    Hagler would have smashed Jake Lamotta and that is all that matters. Actually so would have Hearns and many of the opponents Hagler beat.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    Exactly. Lamotta was tough as nails but couldn't crack an egg.

    He's the bull in the china shop that is the middleweight division. All you can do is beat up everyone willing to step in and for what he lacks, Lemieux can crack and thinks he belongs and unlike some diva champs he'll try to prove it.

    It's all true. But the big difference for Haglers era was the best Welters were big. The best welters now started well below welter and have maxed out size wise. There's a big difference between guys 5'10/6'1 and guys 5'6/5'8

    Pretty sure golovkin is being set up by hbo(big tv guys are really in control I think) to fight the winner of cotto v canelo , so it's certainly a good fight to kill time for golovkin, I really believe golovkin will be fighting for the wbc belt next year, if he wins of course.
