Before someone gets the wrong idea Im not saying that no one is taking tough fights but him but he has had 7 hard fights not one soft touch in that group.

No doubt.

But look at Chad Dawson's last 9 fights: Ward, Hopkins II, Hopkins I, Diaconu, Pascal, Johnson II, Tarver II, Tarver I, Johnson I

American boxers are over-hyped by American media, but vastly underrated by international fans. It just is what it is. Everybody looks to discredit and dislike successful American boxers.

Im pulling for Alexander in the Brook fight and it would be nice if he can stop him and then get a new trainer.

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
***y bitch

Yup. I hope and think he'll come out on top in a close one.

We will see if Brook is the goods, though. Plenty of basis for comparing him against other top fighters depending on how he does with Devon.

I think he is rather arrogant. Brook is going to take the smug right of his face when their fight ends. Win or lose, Alexander is going to get taught a lesson on fight night.

Got a feeling he's another overhyped american benefitting from some seriously questionable decisions in the past. Hats off to Brook for going to america to fight him with that in mind, fancy Kell to step up and beat him handily, but maybe lose a dodgy decision.

As a boxer he is absolutely horrible to watch, and he should have 3 losses on his record. The shameless St. Louis homecooking doesnt help people warm to him either
Alexander looked good lifting Durango off the canvas and giving Marcos Maidana a sound ass-whipping..

I like Alexander and while the Bradley fight was probably too much too soon for him, you can't argue that he's not ducked anybody and has more than earned his place.

Hate watching him fight but he's a good fighter and he always fights good opponents so I respect him. Brook is way out of his league in this fight, Devons gonna embarrass him.
