Joachim Alcine scored a shocking 116-112, 116-112, 114-114 majority decision win over David Lemieux in a battle of local rivals at the Bell Centre in Montreal Saturday night. Lemieux came out strong but the former world champion Alcine, who was fighting above his regular 154 pounds, was able to weather the storm and came back and rocked Lemieux in the fourth round. Alcine did what he could to get inside the 22-year-old’s head by smiling, asking for more, and continually pounding his chest. Lemieux wouldn’t admit that the experienced Alcine got the best of him mentally, but did admit that the tactics did have him loading up on his punches a bit more. Alcine swept the last four rounds on the judges’ scorecards as Lemieux’s production slowed in what ultimately cost him the fight
