  • Lemieux was born in Montreal, Quebec on December 22, 1988 to André Lemieux and a Lebanese Armenian mother, Aznive Khavloudjian. The couple divorced after having one son, the 2-year senior to David. David was born after the departure of his father and he claims he has never seen his biological father.
  • Lemieux studied at the local Saint-François-de-Laval school, in the Ahuntsic district of Montréal, but did not excel, spending most of time on the streets. He was eventually expelled from the school for street fights. Encouraged by his adoptive father to focus, he started training in Ring 83 located in Ahuntsic with the encouragement and guidance of Baha Laham, a successful Canadian boxer of Lebanese descent.
