Devon Alexander Heading To 147, Eyes Malignaggi Bout

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.

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…

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…
