Saunders-Lemieux Heats Up

It’s official. WBO World Middleweight Champion Billy Joe Saunders (25-0, 12 KOs) will put his belt on the line on Saturday, December 16 against former IBF World Middleweight Champion David Lemieux (38-3, 33 KOs) at a soon-to-be announced venue in Montreal, Canada.

Billy Joe Saunders: “Lemieux looks good against ‘B level’ fighters, but he is now getting in the ring with someone who is far more superior and slick than anyone he has ever been in with. I don’t just want the dog meat that Golovkin has left behind, I want the dog himself and when I come through this fight I will have him. He is a mandatory and we’ve agreed to a deal to go over to foreign soil and get it on. I have a lot of friends in Canada, and I’ll be bringing a lot of supporters over to Canada from the UK. It has all the makings of a good fight. I’m expecting a good, clean, fair decision. Once I beat Lemieux I’ll be moving onto bigger fish; the winner of the rematch between Canelo and Golovkin. I’m looking forward to a great fight.”

David Lemieux: “It’s time to be world champion again. Saunders is about to get destroyed. I’m going to be extremely ready for this fight and I’m going to inflict a lot of pain on Saunders. His 0 must go.”

WBA 160lb champ N’Dam impressive in public workout

By Joe Koizumi
Photos by Naoki Fukuda

Every day there is any schedule of event prior to the world title tripleheader on this coming Sunday. We saw WBA middleweight titleholder Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam, France, show a unique training menu at his public workout today (Tuesday) at the Teiken Gym in the center of Tokyo, Japan.

Spiritually well-guided by Cuban trainer Pedro Diaz, the champ N’Dam, originally hailing from Cameroon, displayed various kinds of training—some being acrobatic and others unique—to stun the press people. The 33-year-old veteran showed them as if he boasts of his capability of beating his challenger Ryota Murata with a variety of skills, which may need 24 rounds or 36 rounds to show all in a fight. Japanese athletes are traditionally excellent in gymnastics, as they are small and quick enough to do physical magic. Should the gymnastics adopt weight system, Hassan N’Dam may be able to gain a medal in the middleweight category of the game since he is so flexible, quick and athletic.
