Lemieux came in incredibly 15 pounds heavier than O’Sullivan, despite the two both being middleweights.
How he put on that amount of weight since the weigh-in yesterday must be near a record surely for weight advantage on fight night.
The power he put on display was crushing in the end.
Lemieux lost to Billy Joe Saunders in a unanimous points decision just before last Christmas.
The win by the Englishman and WBO champion looks even more impressive now following Lemieux’s big win tonight.
