Bradley-Alexander Update: $1.1 Million May Not Be Enough

By Rick Reeno

BoxingScene.com was advised by a reliable source that promoter Gary Shaw made an offer of $1.1 million to WBO junior welterweight champion Timothy Bradley for a unification showdown with WBC/IBF champion Devon Alexander. HBO has reserved the date of January 29 for the possible fight. To date, Shaw has not received a response to that offer from the Bradley camp.

I've heard Alexander has yet to receive any offer from his promoter, Don King. The offer from King could be higher, or lower, than the offer presented to Bradley. It really depends on the amount King plans to keep for himself. While some of it is speculation, it's safe to assume that $1.1 million may not be enough to get the fight done for either side.

Last week, Alexander's manager/trainer Kevin Cunningham made it clear to BoxingScene.com that both fighters deserved to get a bigger number than what Amir Khan was able to earn for his May fight with Paulie Malignaggi. Khan reportedly cleared at least $1.1 million or more.

"Devon and Tim both deserve more than what Khan received for the Malignaggi fight.  This is the most highly anticipated fight besides Mayweather-Pacquiao. I think they know they need to come correct with their offer," Cunningham said.
