With the victory Lemieux is now the IBF middleweight champion of the world. Scores were 115-109, 115-109, and 114-110 all for Lemieux.
Lemieux spent most of the fight chasing N'Damn to the ropes and unleashing huge left hooks and right hands. When the fight was in the middle of the ring N'Dam was able to win rounds by throwing his jab and moving. N'Damn found himself on the ropes to much though with Lemieux being able to land big left hooks that kept hurting N'Dam. Lemieux never lost his energy though in the final rounds N'Damn was landing some big shots that appeared to be hurting Lemieux but the Canadian fighter never did touch the canvas.
