Cunningham: Alexander Broke Left Hand in First Round

By Ryan Burton

Devon Alexander's trainer and manager Kevin Cunningham has advised BoxingScene.com that his fighter broke his left hand in the first round of his TKO victory over Lee Purdy last night in Atlantic City.

After the first round it was obvious that something was wrong with Alexander's left hand as he began to use his right hand almost exclusively. Between rounds Cunningham could be heard telling his fighter to at least feint and paw with his left hand to keep his opponent off balance.

In the post fight interview Alexander said that his left hand was hurt but didn't know the extent of the injury. Cunningham said that tomorrow they will find out how long Alexander will be on the shelf.

The tentative plan is for the IBF welterweight champion to face former unified junior welterweight champion Amir Khan in December. Alexander is also in the running to be Floyd Mayweather's next opponent.

I bet Devon Alexander's left hand will heal immediately if Mayweather wants to fight him tomorrow. Alexander is slick, he beat a old ass one dimentional Randall Bailey to win a weak IBF 147 title. These fighters I tell you will find the easiest way for a paycheck. That Purdy guy was a bum and af...

[QUOTE=turkas]Kell Brook? Jesuse Christ, you were going on this rant about people deserving to be worthy of a fight with Floyd and you name a guy who has only fought bums? HAHAHAHA Remember the question was who is worthy if the Canelo fight doesn't happen. Bradley is signed to fight JMM, so he i...

Mayweather isn't fighting Devon Alexander next. Alexander-Khan will happen in December. I have a hard believing if Devon broke his hand that he would fight less than 4 months from now anyway.

comment by turkas, on 05-19-2013
[QUOTE=turnedup]I gave you names and those fights being lined up aren't signed yet..and they all have the same damned handlers. Kell Brook is higher rated than Devon if that gives you any indication of how much I think Devon deserves this fight. Bradley is signed to Cameron Dunkin and Dunkin has ...
