Former IBF middleweight champion David Lemieux (44-4, 35 KOs) scored a fifth round KO against Francy Ntetu (17-4, 4 KOs) in a super middleweight bout on Saturday night behind closed doors at the Centre Gervais Auto in Shawinigan, Quebec, Canada. The aggressive Lemieux pressed the action and progressively broke down Ntetu. Two knockdowns in round five ended it. Time was 1:58.

Unbeaten NABF heavyweight champion Arslanbek Makhmudov (11-0, 11 KOs) needed just 27 seconds to stop Dillon Carman (14-6, 13 KOs). Makhmudov almost immediately dropped Carman with a hard jab. Carman beat the count and seemed good to continue, but the referee waved it off.

In a clash for the vacant NABF super middleweight title, Lexson Mathieu (9-0, 8 KOs) scored a first round KO over “Irish” Tim Cronin (12-5-2, 3 KOs). A left to the body put Cronin, the current Canadian light heavyweight champion, down for the count. Time was 1:34.

This was the first fight card in Canada since covid.

  • David Lemieux is still dangerous. I wanna see him against Jaime Munguia if Jaime gets past Johnson.

      • Agreed…Lemieux still has sneaky power that can change an opponent’s outcome at a drop of hat. That being said, he still has some juice in the tank to give anyone trouble in the ring.

  • As expected Arslanbek Makhmudov made easy work of the former Canadian champion. I want to see him fight fellow 31 year old Canadian prospect Simon Kean. I think Makhmudov is the real deal & I’m not so sure about Kean after he got KO’d by Carman. Both are 31 & need to start moving up the competition now…

  • I don’t know how they would make it and maybe they’re friends or something else, but I would absolutely love if Lemieux ended up fighting Jean Pascal before the end of their careers. If not Pascal, then maybe someone like a Lionell Thompson for Lemieux.

  • i dont know if somebody notice i think David lemieux ko ntetu faster thant david benavidez XD
