With the retirement of Floyd “Money” Mayweather most people are looking at who the new P4P boxer is. My pick is WBA Super World, IBO and WBC interim champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin, 33-0 (30) with his last 20 bouts ending in knockout! He will be defending his WBA Super World title for the 14th time October 17th at MSG!

Finally one of the organizations champions steps up to meet GGG in IBF middleweight champion David Lemieux, 34-2 (31) who is making his first defense and poses as the biggest threat to GGG with power of his own. He scored knockouts in his first 20 fights before winning the Canadian super middleweight title by decision in February of 2010. He came back with 4 straight knockouts including a WBC International middleweight title defense stopping Hector Camacho, Jr., 52-3-1, before losing back to back bouts.

Lemieux’s first loss was in April of 2011 to Mexico’s Marco Rubio, 49-5-1, in Lemieux’s home city of Montreal. The same Rubio was stopped by GGG in October of 2014 when GGG won the hearts of the Mexican people.

For Lemieux to come back after losing for the first time against the former WBA Super welterweight champion Joachim Alcine, 32-2-1, some 8 months later seemed like a tough return to the ring losing by majority decision. He’s since won 9 in a row 7 by knockout including winning the NABF title stopping Fernando Guerrero, 26-2.

In December of 2014 Lemieux stopped “King” Gabriel Rosado, 21-8, in 11 rounds in a NABF title defense. Golovkin stopped Rosado in 7 rounds. It would be 6 months later when Lemieux won the vacant IBF middleweight title defeating Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam, 31-1, in June in his last bout over 12 rounds. The winner of Puerto Rico’s Miguel “Junito” Cotto’s WBC defense November 21st in Las Vegas against Mexico’s Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, 45-1-1, the former WBC and WBA super welterweight champion is expected to meet the interim champion a title GGG now holds.
