Former IBF World middleweight champion, David Lemieux makes it two in a row, after his devastating 2015 loss to Gennady Golovkin, defeating the sturdy Cristian Fabian Rios in his hometown of Montreal on Saturday night.

Lemieux looked less than stellar in victory but got some good work going the distance against a durable Argentine southpaw that has never been knocked out.

“I am very happy,” said Lemieux’s trainer Marc Ramsay. “These are the things that are needed for David’s development. “Now I have material that I could use to sit with him and watch what we did, which hasn’t happened too often in the past, unfortunately. It’s very difficult when you have to base decisions on only one or two rounds of film.”
