David Lemieux Takes On Ronny Landaeta On April 17th

By: Hans Themistode David Lemieux vs Glen Tapia (Round 4) Vacant NABO Middleweight Title Referee: Russell Mora photo credit: WILL HART Former middleweight titlist David Lemieux will look to get back into championship contention next month when he takes on Ronny Landaeta. Originally, Lemieux (42-4, 35 KOs) was scheduled to take on Robert Talarek. However, due to reasons that are unclear, Talarek was forced to withdraw. For Lemieux, his career has somewhat stalled following a wide unanimous decision loss at the hands of Billy Joe Saunders in 2017. Since then, the former belt holder has picked up four straight victories but in both 2020 and 2019, he managed to only step into the ring once. Despite the victories and inactivity however, Lemieux is still looking to bag his first big win since a 2018 first-round stoppage over Gary O’Sullivan. While Lemieux is attempting to recapture championship glory, he’ll do so in his second weight class. After spending years at 160 pounds, the strain placed on the body of Lemieux eventually became too much for him to bear. And with that, he moved up in weight in late 2019. Although the results have been to his liking, Lemieux is hoping that he continues to impress. In part because of his desire to face unified super middleweight champion, Canelo Alvarez. The two were thought to be on a collision while the Montreal native campaigned at 160 pounds. However, with Lemieux constantly dealing with weight issues, their contest ultimately fell by the wayside. In the case of Landaeta (17-3, 11 KOs), his newfound date with Lemieux will undoubtedly represent the toughest fight of his career. Presently, the Venezuelan product has hit a rough patch in his career. In his last ring appearance, the 38-year-old lost via wide unanimous decision against Kevin Lele Sadjo. In totality, he has come up short in three of his past four fights and appears to have a tall mountain to climb in his contest against Lemieux.

Roy Jones Jr.: “Y’all Gonna Make Me Mess Around And Come Back And Become Champ Again”

By: Hans Themistode It’s been a long time since Roy Jones Jr. officially entered the ring. It’s been even longer since he held a world title. Regardless of that, Jones Jr. feels like a new man ever since he took on former undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson during an exhibition match late last year. Their contest may have officially ended in a draw, but Jones Jr. has spent most of his time since then working the rust off. After one of his more recent gym sessions, a drenched in sweat Jones Jr. took the time to give the boxing world a bit of a warning. “Y’all gonna make me mess around and come back and become champ again. I’m trying not to but y’all pushing me.” In the opinion of most, Jones Jr.’s championship aspirations would appear to be farfetched. The last time the former four-division titlist had a world title draped around his shoulders was nearly two decades ago in 2003. While he would continue to fight for 15 years, Jones Jr. was a shadow of his former pound-for-pound self. Outside of his exhibition showdown with Tyson, Jones Jr. has kept busy by training younger fighters with title dreams of their own. Amongst the many he is currently training, is WBA interim middleweight champion Chris Eubank Jr. After suffering several knockout losses during the latter portion of his career, Jones Jr. decided to hang up his gloves for good in 2018. Yet, his boxing itch has struck again. Instead of kicking his feet up and enjoying the fruits of his labor, Jones Jr. spends his time training his now 52-year-old body. Despite his reflexes slowing down considerably, the future first-ballot Hall of Famer appears to be as focused as ever. In fact, the Florida native even took the time to offer advice to anyone that would be willing to take him on. “See where I’m from it's called dedication,” said Jones Jr. “If you ain’t dedicated to taking on a legend, then you ain’t ready. You gotta be dedicated, so dedicated that you willing to take over the nation.” The post Roy Jones Jr.: “Y’all Gonna Make Me Mess Around And Come Back And Become Champ Again” appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.
