HBO Boxing After Dark is back this weekend as middleweight punchers David Lemieux (36-3, 32 KOs) and Curtis Stevens (29-5, 21 KOs) will go head-to-head. Stevens, who is known for a getting under his opponent’s skin leading into fights, has certainly done so here with Lemiuex - who says Stevens will pay for it on fight night.

''The last time that my opponent spoke so much and I so disliked him, I believe it was Delray Raines. I broke three of his ribs and his nose. It didn't end up very well for him.

''I couldn't be more prepared for a fight. I have one objective in mind: I want to take his head off. I am so motivated to put on a great performance on Saturday night. Stevens put a lot of oil in the fire with his disrespectful comments and he will pay for it.”

The fight on HBO kicks off on the late-night this Saturday, starting at 11pm EST. Lemieux is most recently coming off a decision win over Cristian Fabian Rios while Stevens last won a decision over James De La Rosa last November.

Yours truly will be on the round-by-round call for BLH. Come keep me company...
