Promoter Eddie Hearn has received word from Golden Boy Promotions that IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander has injured his bicep in training camp and withdrew from the scheduled fight with mandatory challenger Kell Brook.

Alexander-brook is a prelim type fight come to reason here: this fight is a prelim type of fight for the undercard of a major fight. neither of these guys could give away tickets in Detroit crime city USA. no drawing…

[QUOTE=yoz;12997582]It's ridiculous. This fight would fill a 15k venue in the UK; but in the USA it can't even shift 1,000 tickets. Move it across the pond.[/QUOTE] mr. Alexander is too fragile to travel, apparently.
