Alexander Eyes Urango-Like Showcase With Matthysse

By Chris LaBate

Former unified junior welterweight champion Devon Alexander (21-1, 13KOs) wants to recapture some lost ground. He lost a technical decision to Timothy Bradley in January. Now he wants to show the entire sport that he's still one of the best at 140-pounds. That's why he agreed to fight the dangerous Lucas Matthysse (28-1, 26KOs) on Saturday at the Family Arena in Saint Charles, Missouri. Matthysse will come to fight and wants to make a statement. The knockout artist from Argentina is one-fight removed from a close split decision loss to Zab Judah.

“I want to show people why I was considered one of the best at 140 pounds and I want those people who believed in me to know that they were not wrong. I am one of the most capable and dangerous fighters in the division, a former unified world champion that wants to return to the top.  My goal is to prove my greatness and be boxing hall of fame material before I hang up my gloves," Alexander said.

“Lucas Matthysse is one of the most dangerous guys out there, a big puncher.  But they said the same thing about Juan Urango and I put him out on his back.”

Matthysse is a better fighter than Urango. Less hittable, almost as slow though. Devon has that going for him. I expect him to win. I also expect him to get tagged a bit at some point.
