Devon Alexander To Amir Khan: Stop Using My Name!

By Ryan Burton

Former junior welterweight champion Amir Khan recently stated that he would like to face Robert Guerrero or Devon Alexander on December 6th. Khan and Alexander were supposed to meet in December but Khan decided against the matchup when he thought he had a fight against Floyd Mayweather locked up for this past May.

Alexander is tired of hearing Khan mention his name and feels that the Brit has no intention of ever fighting him.

"Khan don't want to fight me . He has already proved that. He needs to just stop bringing my name up. He is just using my name or trying to make statements that sound good," said Alexander.

As for his future plans, Alexander said that he would love to return on the Mayweather-Maidana undercard in September or in a homecoming fight in his native St. Louis. He said that he just wants a big fight and doesn't care who his opponent is.

"I want all the big names. I would  love to fight on the Floyd card or fight at home. I really want to come home and fight too.

"It really don't matter who I fight. I don't care.  If Khan is really possible I would fight him but I'm not holding my breathe. He don't dictate over here. Like my coach (Kevin Cunningham) said, 'he don't run nothing.'  I want all the big names out there!" Alexander told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=anonymous2.0;14832863]Under Hunter I think Amir wins, but I just watched that 2days to Golovkin thing on HBO, and I think Max had a good quote, 'charisma in boxing is beating people up' (or something like that). Even though we've only…
