Default Devon should still face Bradley

Yeah I'm an Alexander fan and admit he didn't look great but Bradley isn't as defensively-sound as Kotelnik and loves to fight. The thing is, Devon loves to fight aswell so it should be a great fight. Despite all the controversy it was a good fight though Devon didn't look impressive. If any of you think Kotelnik won fine I can't argue with that it was a close fight. I see Khan giving him hell & beating him though. He might even kick his ass but oh well I'll still root for Devon Alexander last night didn't change that.

Kotelnik lost because he's white. It would be a riot in SL if they gave him the decision ala Golota in NY.

Do we have to resort to the race card?

He lost because he was the opponent going into theother guy's hometown. He knew they would value Devon & his aggression so he should've pushed the action more even though still it's not unreasonable for us to score the fight for him.

Agree. Bradley/Alexander still looks good to me as both guys didn't look great in their last fights but Bradley was fighting @ 147 so that can be excused. I still saw that he couldn't finish Abregu though he had him hurt several times so maybe his lack of being a finisher may show up again...who knows? Still, Bradley is the man to beat at 140 and I'm not sure Devon can pull it off but he has a chance. Bradley is good at adapting.

It's okay it happens lol. Kotelnik is a much better fighter than I gave him credit for before yesterday night and I think it was more of Kotelnik being good than Alexander looking bad. Kotelnik had great d he impressed me & had me nervous. Still he should've stepped on the gas pedal a bit more but overall he looked pretty good.

According to Shaw, the fight should be a done deal by next week.

Devon's gonna get a savage beat down if he doesn't learn how to fight on the inside and move his feet.

I don't think it was said that he wouldn't fight him after last night. I just think it will diminish the praise Bradley gets once he beats his ass.

He wasn't listening to his corner. The fight could've been possibly easier for him if he did.

Kotelnik has defence and chin.Bradley has been put on his back-side by the great kendall Holt.Alexander can put him down.They will expose each other IMO.Khan is the beast of this division (the most explosive hands).Maidana the most dangerous (because of his power).

It's a good win for either guy. Much props to both men if they fight each other. Styles make fights and Bradley LOVES to fight which in a way can play into Devon's plans, or not because his defense isn't good enough to avoid an onslaught from Bradley. Also if he's stationary for long periods like he was against Kotelnik he's toast.
