The search for Canelo’s next opponent continues and it seems to be going further and further away from the top names that people want him to fight. This is due to Golden Boy wanting a cheaper opponent because they will have no money from the gate which i think is reasonable enough.
David Lemieux looks to be the fighter who will get the big Canelo pay day as he’s with Golden Boy and his manager said they have begun talks to fight Canelo. Lemieux is a recognizable name and most likely the best they can get right now in the weak Super middleweight division. Obviously fans won’t be happy with this fight but its either a fight like this or Canelo doesn’t fight until sometime next year.
