Another upset on Azteca America


Recommended Posts

Bronx, NY December 12...Joe DeGuardia's Star Boxing in association with GYM INC. presented the 5th installment of "BOXEO AMERICA" broadcast live this past Saturday December 10th, from the Bell Center in Montreal Canada on the Azteca America network and once again a major upset took place in the main event as former WBA Jr. Middleweight champion Joachim Alcine (33-2-1 19KO) won a spirited 12 round majority decision over hometown hero David Lemieux (25-2 24KO) capturing the WBC Intercontinental Middleweight championship.


Lemieux started out strong rocking Alcine in the first round and continued being the aggressor for the next couple of rounds. Alcine started to fight his way back into the fight in the fourth round using a strong jab, good counterpunches, and slick movement. Alcine rocked Lemieux in the fifth round with a big right hand but David kept applying the pressure as the bout wore into the championship rounds. It was mostly a give and take affair but in the end Alcine prevailed and scored the big upset by majority scores of 116-112 on two cards, and 114-114 on the third.

Agreed. He needed a couple of confidence builders, but was trying not to lose the momentum he built up before his first loss...

He's a great fighter to watch, but unfortunately, struggles against anyone who stands up to his punches and throws them back with interest.


I really had high hopes for him, but he's really set himself back with this loss.

He does still have time, but needs to get back to winning ways pretty fast now.

He's put more pressure on himself than he really needed to at this stage.


Also, I wouldn't really say that an Alcine victory was much of "an upset".

He's a proven fighter with plenty of ability, and I would be more surprised if he wasn't the slight favourite going into the fight...

Psychologically it's devastating because he was able to rationalize the Rubio loss by blaming his ex-Trainer Russ Anber so vehemently, but with Russ no longer in his Corner, he's got to take full responsibility for this one and not sure his 22-year-old maturity is going to be able to handle that. They BADLY underestimated what Alcine had left and most of all what young Lemieux could handle.
