The WBA and IBO world champion is well aware that the clash with Canadian Lemieux will be his hardest fight yet, in a division brimming with talent, including Miguel Cotto and Canelo Alvarez who meet next month and Andy Lee and Billy Joe Saunders later this year, all exclusively live on BoxNation.
"This is the biggest test for me. He's the IBF champ. It's big situation, unification, pay-per-view. Right now it's a very interesting…
