Devon Alexander and Amir Khan appear to be on a collision course for a December 7th showdown at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. If the fight comes to fruition it will be televised by Showtime and serve as the final show of the year for the sky rocketing network (their December 14th show featuring Adrien Broner and Marcos Maidana will be a pay-per-view event).

In a recent conversation with, the 26-year-old Alexander told us that he doesn't understand why Khan is regarded as an elite level fighter. He said that every time the Briton faces a top fighter he loses.

"Who has Khan beat at the top level?" stated Alexander who's only blemish came against Tim Bradley.  

Alexander said that Khan is just an average fighter with big aspirations. He went on to say that the only meaningful victory on Khan's resume is Marcos Maidana, who Alexander dominated last year. Maidana had Khan badly hurt late in their fight but to his credit Khan was able to withstand the Argentine's onslaught and win a close decision.

The St. Louis, MO native said that all Khan is going to get on December 7th is another loss on his record.

"The only significant win he had is Maidana and I smoked him every round. This guy thinks he's bigger than what he is . He is average with top level dreams! Every time be has stepped up he has lost so it won't be no different when we fight," Alexander told

so many arm punches are gonna be thrown in this fight. alexander's gonna get lit up though. wish amir would sit down on his sht more, he can take devon out in the first few rounds if he chooses to.

Khan is going to jab Alexanders head off. For all of Khans faults, he always comes to fight and leaves it all in the ring. He's been knocked out twice but I wouldn't exactly call Prescott and Garcia light punchers. Khan easily outpoints this quitter.

Alexander the twat lost to Kotelnik, quit against Bradley, and lost to Lucas, so he should STFU about this subject; Khan>him

Are they gonna make this fight or not? I like Alexander but this dude won't stop running his mouth. Alexander should be careful because he may get outboxed here in this fight. You quit against Bradley and got gift decisions against kotelnik and Matthysse. Yes u did beat Maidana but at welterweigh...
