David Lemieux Misses Weight – Fight with James De La Rosa Canceled

Davie Lemieux vs. James De La Rosa has been canceled.

Lemieux missed weight and, as a result, his would-be opponent, De La Rosa, has pulled out.

De La Rosa made weight, coming in at 162 lbs while Lemieux came in at 165.6 lbs.

The fight was meant to be a “comeback” for Lemieux, after losing his IBF Middleweight title against Gennady “GGG” Golovkin back in October of last year.

Camille Estephan, David Lemieux’s promotor, offered Adrian Clark, James De La Rosa’s promoter, a 40% increase on his purse. Clark denied the offer.

An agreement was not reached.
