Lemieux back with a bang to score 25th knockout

Canadian middleweight David Lemieux got his derailed career back on track last night with a second round knockout victory over Mexican Jaudiel Zepeda at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

The 23 year-old boasted a remarkable 25-0 record with 24 stoppages eighteen months ago, prior to suffering back-to-back defeats to Marco Antonio Rubio and Joachim Alcine in 2011 and is now back to winning ways with a customary stoppage.

Lemieux looked back to his old best, working behind his jab in the first, before picking his shots beautifully in the second to put Zepeda down with a right hand to the head. The home fighter then worked the body and a crisp left hook ended the fight as the Zepeda, 29, took the full count midway through the second.
