The pair battled it out for the WBO middleweight championship of the world this past December gone and despite the fight reaching a conclusive end, the champion won’t let things go in the verbal department.
Saunders recorded arguably the best win of his career via unanimous decision.
Shutting a previously 50-50 tipped opponent completely out of the contest, largely.
Following the beating the Englishman received world-wide acclaim in the sport but many who knew of his talents were less than surprised, in reality.
Going into the bout there was a lot of back and forth exchanged between the two.
Some of it over the top to be honest when Canadian Lemieux said he was looking to properly do hospitalized damage to his opponent.
Despite battering Lemieux, Saunders won’t let him off the hook it would seem because of these pre-fight threats and heated words.
Lemieux posted the following update on Instagram:
To which Saunders replied:
your still flat footed in that pic David pal

It looks like Saunders will just never get along with him.
From his own career’s perspective he’s a busy man mind you, with Martin Murray on his plate next up he’ll need to keep his eye on the ball and focus on the serious task ahead of him.
