**** all these boxing fans who can't appreciate skills and need some WWE type **** to get interested. If you find Alexander vs. Maidana boring you are the worst type of boxing fan. Go watch UFC.
Skills? He is fast and sharp but he has no idea what he is doing with his punches. Jab, jab, jab, jab without any idea. His timing and ability to find those connecting spots are awful.
He was able to outwork Maidana which is a great achievement but still.. Kotelnik was able to outbox him pretty bad cause he was smart. Not fast and slick as Alexander but he knew what to do there. Alexander had no answer
