Canadian Armenian David Lemieux Wins IBF Middleweight Boxing Title –

David Lemieux of Montreal knocked down Frenchman Hassan N’Dam four times and won the vacant International Boxing Federation middleweight title with a unanimous decision early Sunday morning.

Lemieux (34-2) dominated the bout, flooring N’Dam (31-2) once in the second round, twice in the fifth and again with a left hook in the seventh to win the title.

Lemieux’s impressive performance in a fight broadcast in the U.S. on the Fox network may earn him some high profile bouts. There is already talk of a clash with WBA champion Gennady Golovkin, or a bout with the winner of a proposed match in November between WBC champ Miguel Cotto and Mexican star Saul (Canelo) Alvarez.

David Lemieux (born December 22, 1988 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada) is a Canadian professional boxer. Lemieux fights in the middleweight division. He is the current IBF Middleweight Champion and former WBC International Middleweight Champion. Lemieux is of French and Armenian descent. Lemieux began boxing at the age of nine.

Lemieux’s mother is Lebanese Armenian, her last name is Khavloudjian. He speaks fluent armenian.
