David Lemieux is billed as Gennady Golovkin's biggest challenge to date, but is he?

With just a few days remaining until Gennady Golovkin and David Lemieux take to the ring for their HBO pay-per-view main event from Madison Square Garden, Lemieux remains a big underdog against the unbeaten Kazakh middleweight, though a couple of lines have moved a little bit on various sports books.

The four A-sides have been heavy favorites for the pay-per-view fights since the lines opened, and that isn't changing. Along with Golovkin, favored fighters Roman Gonzalez, Tureano Johnson, and Luis Ortiz are not expected to encounter much resistance against their opposition on Saturday.

Here are some lines as of Wednesday morning:

Two of those Golovkin-Lemieux lines have moved since Wednedsay. The line at 5Dimes has gone from -2000 (Golovkin) / +1250 (Lemieux) to -1650 and +1300, while the GT Bets line has narrowed slightly. On Wednesday, Golovkin was at -2000 and Lemieux at +1200. Today, those lines are -1900 and +1150. Neither line indicates any serious change in the perception of the fight.

Do you see any serious possibility for an upset on this pay-per-view, or will everything be business as expected?
