Canadian Middleweight boxer David Lemieux is a fighter who has looked unstoppable in recent months and Saturday just proved that.
Lemieux took on Curtis Stevens in New York on Saturday night and was declared victorious in the third round after a brutal knock out.
OUT OF NOWHERE
Lemieux delivered the knock out punch seemingly out of nowhere and left Stevens out cold behind the ropes as the referee brought the fight to an end.

The hit was brutal as even the announcers said, it needed a second watch in order to even see what the Canadian fighter actually did.
Delivering a brutal left hook that was both sneaky and crushing, Lemieux continued his winning streak that started following his 2015 loss Gennady Golovkin.
None of those victories will be as satisfying to him as Saturday's win as he was making his first return to New York since that painful title unification loss.
The former IBF Middleweight Champion got off to a rocky start in the fight but was able to find his rhythm and claim the big victory thanks to the devastating blow.
Speaking after the fight, the 37-3 boxer said:
"I told you what I was going to do, and I did it,"
Boasting an air of confidence, the former champion didn't need 12 rounds to claim victory over Stevens and is quickly becoming a big name once again in the division.
With his impressive record and 33 of his 37 wins coming by way of knock out, Lumieux could prove to be a tough ask for any fighter brave enough to climb into the ring with him.
Lumieux could be looking at another chance at the title, while fighters like WBO Middleweight Champion Billy Joe Saunders or a big money bout with Canelo Álvarez could also be on the cards.
