Default Bradley is overrated. Devon Alexander is the truth

Bradley's good dont get me wrong. But he's really overachieved. Reminds me of a poor mans Sugar Shane Mosley in the way he can box but can also go toe to toe if he wants to. A ferocious puncher, good technique, getting better with every outing, but he's just too small for 140lbs in my eyes and not really exceptional in any one area.

If Bradley and Khan were to fight today, I'd consider BRadley only a slight favorite. However Devon Alexander, has true power and size for the weight class. Nobody has ever straight up punked Urango like that. Even Ricky Hatton merely roughed him up to a boring decision. Yet Alexander smoked him.

Alexander has it all. He can fight in the pocket, can box, has a great jab, great upper cut ect.

Frankly, im putting my money on Alexander to rule the division. I dont think BRadley or Khan are complete enough fighters to compete with The Great.

Bradley is proven and has came up victorious when the odds were against him.
Alexander beaten people he was expected to beat and shouts like a ***** when he throws a punch.

I love it! This is a great fight in the making and the rivalry is heating up. Khan will join shortly and the forum will be split 3 ways regarding who is the future. The only way boxing can create some buzz today is bigtime rivalry, and this is what's heating up at 140.

I personal opinion is that Bradley is a superb fighter and improving fight to fight, I consider him the better fighter at this very moment, though I expressed my thoughts well before Devon-Urango that I feel Alexander might have the bigger potential. Alexander also improves from fight to fight and it was a big statement vs. Urango, though it must be noted that the fight was very close on the cards at the time of stoppage, Devon was even behind on one card. But Alexander stepped up competition a good 3 years younger than Bradley, and I see them outperforming each other fight after fight.

I even feel Ortiz will be back in the mix for this eras fantastic four.

Thats the point. Because Bradley seemingly came from nowhere he's a bit overrated. Virtually went life and death with Kendall Holt, and while he should have a W over campbell, I think Juan Diaz made Nate look a little too good.

As for Alexander, dont know what the odds for him beating Junior Witter and Urango but im pretty damn sure it was Alexander by stoppage in both fights. Witter and Urango are extremely hard to look good against, yet Alexander managed both.

Carl Froch would knock them both out. I don't see what they bring to the table that men far bigger haven't already tried with.

There is no blueprint on how to beat Carl Froch.

Terrible scoring then.


Oh and I agree. Cant sleep on Ortiz either. Who would probably be the best of the bunch if he could take a punch.

Im assuming this is some kind of in-joke, but anything bashing Carl Froch is cool by me The guy is ridiculously overrated.

I also think Alexander has more talent, skill and upside, but at this point, Bradley would grind out a win, his chin is too good. Give Alexander a few more years and he's the best at 140, no doubt. The Madaina fight would have a terrific one for Alex.

Have to admit, Alexander looked awesome against Urango.Don't forget Juan went the distance with Hatton and the bigger Berto, but was disfigured and squashed against Alexander.Bradley is very good, but Alexander would appear to have more potential at this point.This is a fight to look forward to. Khan, Ortiz and Maidana are all significantly flawed compared to Alexander and Bradley.

Might as well shut down this message board if we aren't going to debate/argue about different fighters and matchups.

Anyway, I am a big Bradley supporter and don't agree with the overrated ****. He continues to improve with every fight and looks better against better competition. I expected the Peterson fight to be competitive and it was a beating. Nate Campbell was lucky too as that fight was clearly going to Bradley before it was stopped.

Alexander has a little bit to go before he's ready to jump in the ring with Tim IMO. Elite talent, no doubt. These two may be the Pac/May of 2011. Let's hope both of them add some nice wins to their cards and meet up early next year.
