As Gennady Golovkin and David Lemieux kicked off their three city tour press conference today in NYC at the Empire State buildings, Lemieux is very confident that he has what it takes to beat the most feared man in boxing. This is what Lemieux had to say about the fight:
"Who would have thought a small kid like me would end up fighting at Madison Square Garden, 'The Mecca of Boxing'. I am extremely proud to be here, this event is already historical breaking MSG's record for most tickets sold for a boxing event during a pre-sale.
"You can expect what you see and what you know from us on Oct. 17, two exciting fighters ready to give the fans a really fight.
"In boxing you have to be ready for anything, patterns change. I am ready to be part of that change and become the unified middleweight world champion.
"I respect Golovkin I think he is great fighter, but I'm not here to be his friend I am here to be is opponent. I promise you, there will be blood.
"I am extremely proud to be here and I just want to say that you will see history in the making on Oct 17."
