By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com received word from Devon Alexander's manager and trainer, Kevin Cunningham, that Devon's victory on Saturday night over Lucas Matthysse was his final fight at 140-pounds.

"That was Devon's last fight at 140-pounds. He's been fighting at 140 since he was 15. His next fight will be at 147," Cunningham told BoxingScene.

Cunningham already has an opponent in mind for Alexander's next fight. Cunningham would like his fighter to face former junior welterweight title holder Paulie Malignaggi next.

The talkative New Yorker fought his last two fights in the welterweight division. Malignaggi was critical of Alexander's performance against Tim Bradley this past January, claiming that Alexander quit when he wouldn't continue fighting after suffering a series of head butts.

"Paulie talked sh*t about Devon after the Bradley fight. He can be the first to get it at 147," said Cunningham.

alexander is more of a girl than a guy soft hitting dancing powder puff grunting little girl. alexander has no following and is disgusting to watch his meaningless fights on TV. Hopefully HBO drops this girl.

Devon at 147 will be bigger stronger more powerful he has been looking sluggish in recent fights maybe making weight has something to do with that I like the fresh start at 147 hopefully this move will rejuvenate him at this point Devon easily beats Paulie but its a good fight you have Bad Blood ...

why, is this the only way to get someone to fight him in St.Louis? after re-watching the Lucas fight it was hard for me to even give Alexander more than 4 rounds. the rounds he clearly won were the 5th and the 9th.

I'm kinda bummed out that he's going to 147. The Matthysse fight was SOOOOOOOO close, I want to see a rematch. But a Malignaggi fight would be smart for him, Malignaggi neither has that huge KO power or a fighter who is going to pressure the **** outta Devon.

Fight Kotelnik again, he has moved up to 147 also or fight another Strong Fighter like Selcuk Aydin both are with Don King I think so he could make that happen...IF HE WANTS but these guys would be FOOLS to fight him in St Louis lol especially Paulie who I don't even think would be able to hurt A...
