Bailey: Devon Will Be Confident Until The Right Hand Hits!

By Ryan Burton

Randall "KO King" Bailey is currently in the final stages of his training camp for his October 20th clash against Devon Alexander that takes place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.

Bailey picked up the belt in his last fight with a brutal 11th round knockout of the previously undefeated Mike Jones.  Bailey didn't do much of anything until the 10th round when he sent Jones to the canvas which lead to vicious high light reel knockout in the next round. 

On a recent edition of The Boxing Lab, BoxingScene's official audio show, I asked Bailey if he plans on starting the fight off faster against Alexander.

"I really don't know. I take every fight as a different fight. I can't compare.  Within 10 seconds of the 1st round I will know how to fight this fight," stated Bailey.

The IBF welterweight champion said that he doesn't want to leave the fight in the hands of the judges and that he needs a knockout to make sure he walks away with the victory. He also said that while he needs a knockout that he won't press for it.

"I'm not really going to go in looking for the knockout but I know I have to get the knockout to win. When I hit him with the right hand, well you know," Bailey confidently stated.

Alexander also recently appeared on The Boxing Lab and not only stated that he would outbox Bailey but that he would put a hurting on him as well. Bailey thinks that Alexander will change his tune once he gets hit by one of his punches. 

"I expect him to be confident with his power until I hit him and then he will know what real power is."

Bailey finished by saying that his game plan is simple. He is going to come out looking for Alexander and that Devon is the one who will have to adjust.

"All I can say is I'm coming forward. As soon as the bell says 'ding' I'm coming forward. Whatever he want to do he do," Bailey concluded.

Bailey is way too in love with his power. He should have learned from one of his many losses that he can't knock everyone out. Sounds like he knows thats his only chance of winning. He was absolutely pathetic and…

Actually this fight will go inside the distance, and it will be Devon the winner. Not that I think Devon is a world beater, but Bailey only has that magical right hand, which good fighters can tie up and avoid.…

Bailey may be nothing more than a right hand but its enough if he can land it which is all he will try and do, I have often wondered if he even works on other things not related to landing…
