Alexander Too Fast, Too Accurate For Soto Karass

By Rick Reeno

StubHub Center, Carson, California - In a crossroads battle of welterweight contenders, former two division champion, Devon Alexander (26-2, 14KOs), bounced back from his loss to Shawn Porter with a dominating ten round unanimous decision win over tough Jesus Soto Karass (28-10-3, 18KOs). The scores were 97-93, 99-91, 99-91.

Alexander fast hands and movement was an obvious issue for Soto Karass in the early rounds. Soto Karass tried to make it a brawl midway through the contest and he succeeded in moments, but Alexander's faster hands were able to make it to the target first, and Alexander's defense was key as Soto Karass rarely blocked a shot. Soto Karass was often digging hard hooks to the body, but Alexander took the shots very well through six.

Alexander continued to outbox the much slower Soto Karass as the rounds progressed, but they went to war, trading shots at close range, at the start of the tenth and final round. But again, the faster and more accurate Alexander was scoring the points.

[QUOTE=Bronx2245;14685664]Boxing clinic by Devon. Soto-Karass is done. He's still a warrior, but too slow. [B]I think Alexander vs. Matthysse would be a good fight[/B]. Matthyssee is not gonna get a rematch with Garcia @ 140, so going up against Alexander…

Alexander is a lot better than ppl give him credit. Remember this is the same Soto Karass that stunned Thurman and beat Berto. I would love to see Alexander against Thurman or Broner.
