Well, 168 is currently a lot less talented than 160, I'd say. Fighters are larger, but we're not seeing the same p4p quality. Lemieux does a lot better against the bottom top guys at 168, I'd think. I mean Eubank Jr./Lemieux would be a competitive fight, I'd say. Lemieux could also beat Dirrell, Yildirim, Chudinov, and Abraham. Also, if he lands a great shot, I think he might be able to stop Ramirez. Hart, stylistically, would be poison for Lemieux, though.He might put Eubank to sleep but he will find it very hard to find Smith imo.
I would rather see him at 160
While stylistically and talent-wise, I can't see Lemieux beating Derevyanchenko, Golovkin, Canelo, Andrade, Charlo, or Jacobs.
