Lemieux Unimpressive in Win Over Reyes

Marcos Reyes came to fight against David Lemieux, who was lackluster in a unanimous decision win.

The fight was a general disappointment as the co-headliner in an event of this magnitude. Although, when you compare it with Canelo/Chavez it looks like an edge-of-your-seat nail biter.

Lemieux showed up with some extra weight around the midsection and his signature hair unkempt in this tune-up fight against journeyman Marcos Reyes as a 25-to-1 favorite.

The performance of Reyes was the lone bright spot on a dull night of boxing. While he certainly had the will to win, he lacked the ability.

Reyes absorbed all manner of punishment from Lemieux and was bloodied early in the contest. Lemieux, who obviously did not train seriously for the fight, gassed out early as he tried to get Reyes out of there.

Lemieux has serious holes in his game, and were thoroughly exposed on this night as he was flustered at times by the most basic tactics of Reyes.

Lemieux was hit cleanly, missed wildly, and chased Reyes as he circled the ring without being able to successfully cut him off. Honestly, the night could have been a lot worse for Lemieux if Reyes had more punching power.
