Bailey To Cunningham: Devon Has To Back Up Your Sh*t

By Ryan Burton

Last week a war of words erupted on BoxingScene.com between IBF welterweight champion Randall Bailey and his upcoming challenger Devon Alexander.

Bailey took to Twitter and said to Alexander, "Don't count on fighting in your hometown. Pack your bags." which obviously means that he doesn't plan on facing Alexander in his hometown of St. Louis.

Kevin Cunningham, Alexander's manager and trainer, responded by saying - "We will fight Randall Bailey on Mars if we have to. It doesn't matter where the fight is.  Come September 8th, he's getting his ass whooped."

After hearing Cunningham's statements, Bailey issued a statement of his own to BoxingScene.

"Kevin [is] gonna do a lot of yelling in that corner talking all that sh*t and he's not the one backing it up."

Bailey was taking a shot at Cunningham, who does a lot more talking than the laid back Alexander. 

Bailey-Alexander takes place on September 8th on Showtime. Per BoxingScene's Ernest Gabion, Peter Quillin versus Marco Antonio Rubio may open up the televised broadcast.

Cunningham may be the most annoying trainer in the sport. Hopefully Alexander holds a lot less than he did in the Maidana fight and we see some good action.

I however want Bailey to stick that big right on Devons nose and watch Devon flip backwards on his back like the last guy did. IT may be early or late but I hope he gets it done. One punch…

Jones/Bailey had no buzz, but Alexander/Bailey is "BUZZING" already.

Going for Devon here. Thank Goodness him & Bradley moved up. Welterweight absolutely needed that. These guys aren't afraid to fight. 147 was held hostage by the 2 proposed pfp top fighters who refused to fight. Jones is cleared out…

I've always said that Kevin Cunningham talks way too much sh*t
