Alexander To Exercise Clause: Bradley Rematch is Next

By Lem Satterfield

DETROIT -- WBO king, Tim Bradley, won an anti-climactic, 10-round technical decision over WBC champ, Devon Alexander, in Saturday night's HBO televised, junior welterweight (140 pounds) championship bout when referee Frank Garza, acting on the advice of ringside doctor, Peter Samet, stopped the fight as a result of Alexander's complaining that he could not see out of a bleeding right eye as the result of an accidental head butt. Nevada's Duane Ford 97-93, Mexico's Omar Mintun 98-93, and Ohio's Tim Miller, 96-95, all for Bradley.

When Alexander was asked if he would like to face WBA champion Amir Khan, or former WBA interim king Marcos Rene Maidana, the former champion indicated that he plans to exercise his rematch clause for a return bout with Bradley.

"The contract says that I get a rematch," said Alexander. "I want a rematch with Tim Bradley."
