Canadian trainer, manager and boxing analyst Russ Anber was on The Fight Show with Mauro Ranallo today to talk about his fighter, David Lemieux, and Saturday's fight in Montreal between Bernard Hopkins and Jean Pascal. Anber says that Lemieux won't fight again until the end of the year, probably, and he expects Pascal to turn up the heat on Hopkins this Saturday.
