Devon Alexander: Never Seen Brook Fight, Who is He?

By Phil D. Jay

Newly-crowned IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander (24-1, 13KOs) is contemplating his next fight in the wake of his comprehensive points win over Randall Bailey on Saturday night in Brooklyn.

Alexander, 25, claimed his third world title at two different weights in the process, putting himself right in the mix to claim a lucrative fight against some of the top fighters in the world next year.

On the same night in Sheffield though, undefeated Kell Brook (29-0, 19KOs) made himself the mandatory challenger to Alexander’s crown and hopes to now seal a world title fight with ‘The Great’ in the US or the UK.

WBN caught up with Alexander to ask him if he would be facing the IBF’s number one contender in his next bout and what he made of Brook’s impressive stoppage win over Hector Saldivia at the Motorpoint Arena.

“I didn't see the fight and I barely know Kell Brook,” Alexander told World Boxing News.

“We will see what my advisor Al Haymon and my trainer Kevin Cunningham come up with. Right now, I'm not even worried about Kell Brook because I barely know him and who is he anyway?

“I never saw him fight before so I can't rate him, but maybe he can be used as a tune-up.

“Right now there are a lot of options and I’ll just leave it up to my trainer and advisor to deal with.”

Brook’s promoter Eddie Hearn has today stated that he will now apply pressure on Alexander to defend his belt against the 26 year-old number one contender, but is also known to want any world title fight to happen in his fighter's backyard on UK soil.

Whether the fight can be made in the US is debatable as Alexander is no doubt going to be seeking a home defence in St. Louis and that may mean Brook looks at a possible fight with rival Amir Khan in the interim.

[QUOTE=MASTER1454] Ok, so why does Hearn care where the fight takes place? [/QUOTE] Because he's the promoter.... I think Hearn obviously would like it in the UK but is willing to go to America as long as its not St Louis Fans shouldn't really care where the fight takes place.

[QUOTE=junior gong]Why would he go somewhwere where it already been proven he wont get the nod even if he clearly beats the guy?[/QUOTE] If Brook wants that belt, he has to do what he has to do to get it. If that means going to STL, then so be it. He just better KO Alexander - you can't get no...

Well Brooks does need to step up

comment by leonthegee, on 10-24-2012
[QUOTE=Andrew5550]You haven't seen Kell Brook fight and you've been looking for him? Go search for him on youtube. He's the real thing. And it can be quite hard if you don't have a name in America. The Ghost has a name, fought some decent opponents - of course he's likely to jump the queue. I agr...

This would be a good fight but i doubt it happens anytime soon, I still see Devon fighting a couple more times before he decides whether to fight Brook. And negotiation for a fight like this one isnt going to be easy since both would love to have the fight in their own backyard.
