Dominic Ingle, Saunders’ trainer then also acknowledged they have a stern test in front of them on December 16th but it is a test that he has assured his fighter will be ready. “David is a great fighter, big puncher and a clever boxer. Billy is in a very good place and he’s had some brilliant training and a great camp so far. He is super confident to put on a great show. Hopefully, Dec.16 is going to be a great night of boxing!”
The thunderous punching Montreal native, Lemieux then had his chance to address the media “I think that you are in for a surprise. I will be at my best and take the title from you,” Lemieux assured those in attendance he will be raring to go come fight night. Lemieux then explained whatever approach Saunders takes on fight night, he will be prepared and ready for anything. “If the fight demands me chasing you, I will chase you. If the fight demands me to go toe-to-toe, I will. On December 16, I promise that I won’t leave the Place Bell without the belt. I’m extremely excited. Let’s get it on!” Lemieux concluded.
Marc Ramsey, the head trainer for Lemieux then said: “I’m proud to train a boxer such as David Lemieux, who is a true warrior, a real champion, always up for real challenges.” Ramsey like all who took to the podium before him, he demonstrated total confidence in their team’s ability to pull off the victory “Once again, he will give the fans a show to remember and a beautiful Christmas gift.”
Ramsey then added on a final note, that the fight represents an opportunity for Lemieux to emulate Canadian boxing legend, Arturo Gatti by winning his second world championship “This fight is a great opportunity for David to write history and follow the steps of great Arturo Gatti, by becoming two time World Champion”.
